For $25, they picked us up at the hotel, took us to the market to learn about the different vegetables and spices, taught us how to prepare a choice of meals, and gave us a cook book. The instructor and the staff were so friendly and fun. The food... More

Super friendly staff, very clean, very relaxing. Low season is best. The price is also right. I loved the instructors. They are amazingly friendly, and super organized and coordinated.

I did the full day at the farm and it was definitely one of he highlights of my trip. I went alone but joined a group of really fun people. It's a great day out enjoying learning about and eating thai food in the countryside!

The cooking class was recommended by the owners of the hostel I was staying (The Living Place) and me and a friend chose the half day cooking course. After visiting the market we went to the kitchen (which was very pleasant since it was in the open) and learned to cook different dishes we were able to select from a... More

One of my highlights of Chiang Mai - a very fun course with a fantastic instructor, Pear, who had good English and an even better sense of humour. She's a natural entertainer and very good at involving everyone, whilst also being very mindful of everyone in the group's personal taste. The 4.5hr course starts off with Pear taking the group...
