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.

We absolutely loved our day, was heaps of fun! Made so many dishes, I found it so well organized and even better than courses back home as you get to make and eat all your own individual dishes. A must do if you are visiting Chiang Mai!

Kong the chef picked us up from our hotel right on time. Went the the school and chose our dishes we wanted to learn. Kong was excellent, funny and knew a lot about thai food. Had a trip to a market (which we had already visited the two days prior for breakfast) but still it was cool. Thanks kong!

We had a great day, and we learnt to cook (and eat) a range of delicious Thai food. The trip to the markets was informative and provided a good break in a day of eating. ...and I tried durian for the first time. Kong was entertaining, enjoyable and informative and the class is well worth doing.

The trip to the local market was a big bonus and very informative, the food we all prepared was the best we have ever tasted and we... More

Kong picked us up at our hotel and we went straight to his house. We can choose our dishes (5 dishes from 15 choices) so If you come with your friend or partner, I recommend to choose different. Kong was incredibly knowledgable about all things cooking and spoke fluent English. We were very impressed because all the food we made... More

There was a group of 8 and Kong making everything so perfect. You have plenty of time to taste, eat and ask questions, absolutely no... More

This was one of our best days in Chiangmai. Kong made it so much fun and easy!! My husband doesn't even cook and he had a great time! Kong talked us through each dish and we made the dished ourselves. We left very full and happy!
