My girlfriend and I just finished the Classic Home Cooking and we loved it! My girlfriend did some research and found a couple of places to choose from but ended up with Classic Home Cooking because of the huge variety in dishes you can choose from. The whole experience was great. They pick you up from your hotel and take... More

We had a great time learning to cook four traditional recipes which we were able to enjoy at the end of the class. We even received a free cook book to take home. Great chance to extend your culinary skills and learn more about Thai cooking. The session was well organised in a friendly home-based environment. Would recommend as a... More

Me and my boyfriend are so glad that we signed up for the morning cooking class, everything is wonderful! We were picked up by Vannee and her husband at around 9:30am and headed out together to the local market to buy ingredients. Different from other cookery schools I attended before, Vannee walked us around in almost every section in the... More

We absolutely loved this great experience! Vannee and her Family were great, they picked us up directely at our guesthouse und took us to a great local market. We wouldn't have found this fascinating place on our own and really enjoyed strolling around with Vannee, who would answer any question that came up and explained a lot! Afterwards they took... More

Thanks for an amazing three days of cooking classes. I was seeking non-touristy, local, from a scratch private classes and Classic Home met my requirements. Khun Vannee and Khun Mal are experienced chefs, with a successful restaurant background, and it shows in their teaching. I've been eating Thai food for over 30 years, and it was amazing to have the... More

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
