My wife and I, as part of our honeymoon culinary ramble around Southeast Asia, have managed to attend a fair number of cooking courses. Chiang Mai, of course, is one of the planet's street food Meccas (a bold accomplishment, considering its moderate size and remote location). We decided on this course because of its extensive menu...and the ability to recreate... More

You get picked up, go shopping at the local market, you cook you eat, what is not to love. The instructor was great, the set up is terrific, we all had are own wok's and flames. We cooked an entire meal then sat down and ate it, it was my second favorite meal of my month long trip. I am... More

I found it very difficult to choose which course would be right for me since there are hundreds to choose from and the reviews are so positive that it leaves it difficult to know how one stands out from another, or how advanced each one might be. The classic home cooking class is great, and much more flexible than many... More

I attended this cooking school for a 1 day class with my boyfriend. I can't recommend it highly enough, we just loved it. We were picked up by the school director and her husband from our hotel and we went straight to a big local food market to buy the ingredients we would need. We each got to choose 6... More

From being picked up at the hotel by our hosts - we went to the market and learnt about local foods. We got to choose what dishes we wanted to cook. Went to our hosts outdoor kitchen at their home and made 4 delicious dishes. It was really fun and Mel and his wife are warm and hospital and excellent... More

This was a spur of the moment decision and so worth it. Vannee and Miu picked us up and we where the only 2 people in class. We received full attention at the market during food shopping, as well as during cooking . It was really fun to learn how to cook Thai the right way and how it is... More

The cooking class run by Vannee and her husband and helpers stands out for the flexibility it offers, compared to the other schools in the area which have nowhere near the variety of dishes on offer. My group of 3 was picked up on time from our hotel, taken to a local market to purchase the fresh ingredients we would... More

My boyfriend and I had a hard time deciding where to take a cooking class because the reviews of them seemed so similar. I'm so glad we chose Classic Home Cooking. This experience was really personalized, and I actually felt like I was learning things to use at home. We were part of a small group (just 4 of us... More

My girlfriend and I signed in for this cooking class. We were thrilled to go! We didn't read anything about this course so we had no idea what to expect. We got picked up in the morning at 9 am right on schedule. We had to pick up one other guy and we were set to go to the market... More
