Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

A & Kong are really great cooking instructors and they deserved No #1 cooking school in Chiangmai! We were picked up on time in our hotel by Kong and headed to cooking school (A & Kong's house). We were given a lot of options to choose the specific dishes we would like to cook. The cooking experience was wonderful.  We... More

My wife and I heard good things about this on Trip Advisor so decided to try it and it did not disappoint. Kong picked us up from our hotel which was a short 15 minutes drive to the school which is also their house. The classes were very well organized and the instructions were Thourough and clear. After every class... More

I took cooking class with A & Kong today and it was an absolute the best activity I've done so far. Kong and A were extremely personable, knowledgeable and friendly. They made me feel like a welcomed guest in their home. The cooking school is nice setting in homey environment. If you enjoy cooking and learning about food, I would... More

This was one of the very memorable days we spent in Thailand. We love the food so what better way to spend a day learning how to cook it. Each person had their own cooking station , and we got to choose from 3 items in 4 categories, appetizers, soup, mains, and dessert. Our instructors A and Tong would demonstrate... More

I always loved Thai food and that's why we came to the course. But understanding what exactly is in every dish and taste so many different things, including fruit etc, makes you know a lot better Thailand and Thai people. The owners are simply perfect.

We had a really enjoyable day with A and Kong - both of whom are so lovely - learning how to cook our Thai favourites at home. The day was incredibly educational and we really enjoyed the cooking and eating parts! We learnt how to make 5 different dishes (appetiser, soup, curry, main and pudding). To offer some positive criticism... More

I couldn't leave Chiang Mai today without reviewing the Thai Orchid Cookery School. Ai and Kong were amazing teachers that know how to interact with their students. The course moves at a good pace, and everyone cooks their own choices. There's 6 or 7 dishes you get to prepare with them, and it was a great experience to meet other... More

A and her Orchid staff really made this experience memorable and a lot of fun. I love cooking and my friend and I were really looking forward to learning how to make some of our favorite new Thai dishes. I loved that we visited a local market to learn about the Thai produce used in our dishes and they did... More
