Each day, our students are picked up from Chiang Mai and driven to the cookery school. On a typical day our lessons begin with a trip to a local country market, guided by our experienced cooking instructors so that students learn how to select and buy the fresh Thai ingredients that they will need for that day's cooking lesson. For many, this tour of the morning market is an unforgettable experience in itself, leaving them with lasting memories of new sights, sounds and wonderful spicy aromas, as well as a broader knowledge of Thai fruits, vegetables and spices. This experience and new knowledge is especially useful to those who want to impress their friends back home with delicious Thai cuisine. Returning to the delightful semi-rural setting of the cookery school itself, our instructors take students through every stage of the cooking process, until at the end of the session students have the opportunity to taste and eat their creations. Our students learn by doing, not merely watching, so each course is full of activity and fun.

This cooking class was unbelievable. I loved going to the market to learn the history behind the food and really get a true picture of the Thai culinary world. Once we got to Pom's home, I was really impressed with the location and the set up where we would begin cooking. I felt like I was watching a cooking show... More

I had never taken a cooking class, but I'm sure this was one of the best! We started with a trip to the market to see how coconut milk is made right there, all the varieties of fruits and vegetables...an amazing experience in itself! Sirisuda is super motivating and organized! She gave simple step by step instructions as she modeled... More

What an experience it was, we didn't know what to expect when they said it was at home. We were surprised to see such a thought out, clean and complete set up. Everything was impeccable and all the details were on point. We learned to cook genuine Thai food and my kids, 14 and 18, had an incredible time. We... More

Cooking at home was a magical experience. We really enjoyed the evening. Pom and Vain were extraordinary. They were beyond accomodating and made sure that they had vegetarian option available since one of our party was vegetarian. Not only did we learn how to cook some Thai dishes but they brought us into their lives and gave us an experience... More

A great day of cooking delicious Thai food. Highly recommend this cooking school which has very pleasant garden & farm surroundings. Pom was very thorough with her instructions and gave additional tips as I was cooking my dishes. I particularly wanted to learn the spring rolls and mango sticky rice but now I can cook so much more. The cook... More

My friend and I loved this day! We went for the lunchtime course, picked up from our hotel and taken to a local market where the teacher who had excellent English taught us about the different fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices we were going to be using that day! We arrived at her home which is beautiful in a lovely... More

This cooking school is the most memorable thing about our Thailand holiday for my husband, which is saying something because we spent a whole day with elephants! We were picked up from our accommodation by the owner Pom, and first taken to the markets which was educational and interesting, and not too long and drawn out like other cooking schools... More

We spent 2.5 weeks in Thailand and did lots of activities but Cooling at Home in Chiang Mai was my favorite. I had never taken a cooking class before, had only experienced American-ized Thai food, and had no idea what to expect. We were taken to a house in a residential neighborhood in Chiang Mai. Lovely front garden with a... More

I had a full day cooking class at this school and enjoyed every bit of it. We were picked up early in the morning and went to the authentic local food market used by the locals. Our host took us on a tour and explained the various items in the market. We then shopped for the ingredients we would need... More
