Such and enjoyable and delicious experience! (and cheaper than most)

This is a half-day course - which is great if you want to have the cooking class experience but don't want to spend a whole day in it. Our host, Vannee, was super knowledgeable and informative. We went to a local market, chose the recipes we wanted to learn and got to eat all of the food in the end.... More

The food was good, especially the pad thai; however, we got little to no smiles from the teacher and we asked questions regarding the ingredients the instructor seemed to be mad at us and sounded frustrated. Just imagine Hell's kitchen with chef Ramsey...okay not that bad, but I wish the instructor was just a bit nicer and phrased things nicer... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Chiang Mai and Nothern Thailand! Vanee was a great teacher. She and her husband picked the three of us up in the morning from our hostel and we headed off to the local market place to learn about and gather some local ingredients that we would need for our dishes...

Great activity for my group of six friends. I thought it would be too many people, but our teacher managed just fine. When you get picked up, the instructor hands you a menu of dishes to choose from and you pick one item from each of four categories. Everyone goes to the market together. I would have liked more explanation... More

I took the private class with my partner some days ago. Vanee's husband picked us up and took us to the market. We were expecting Vanee to come and do the shopping with us. Instead her husband (nice person) stayed with us about 1h at the market and showed us various veggies but we barely bought anything cause Vanee has... More

Vanna are cookery teacher was lovely and friendly. The price was 800 baht and that included transport to and from where we were staying to her house, and her own cookery book! In total we made four dishes; Thai Red Curry, Pad Thai, minced Pork with chilli and mango with sticky coconut rice. She was very accommodating to people who... More

I really loved Classic Home Cooking. I especially like that they have a big, outdoor kitchen and the fact that each person gets to choose the dishes they will learn instead of everyone making the same set list. The menu to choose from is big which is an added bonus especially because each person makes a lot of dishes. I... More

An overall fantastic experience! I'm glad we did this on our first night, since it prepared us to appreciate a weekend of fantastic food in Chiang Mai. Vannee was informative, attentive, and fun. I appreciated her fantastic English and sense of humor. Vannee picked us up at our hotel and asked each of us to choose what we would like... More

Looking to learn something about Thai cookery and have a great meal out? Come to Vannee's CHC. A small, friendly place run by a husband and wife team - I was the only student on the day, max is 10, so had 1:1 instruction throughout. Don't think you could buy a better afternoon out. Both husband and wife speak excellent... More

We had an outstanding time cooking with Vannee. We called morning-of and she was able to fit us in that evening. My wife and I each cooked four dishes so in the end had a feast of 8 delicious plates to try. My wife cooks quite a bit at home but she didn't feel like the instruction was too basic... More
