Educational tour, that teaches you how to cook in the best Thai style. Teaching you the secrets of Thai styr fries and making currys from scratch. Awesome day! We had so much fun! :)

Our best day in Chiang Mai! It didn't start off well when we were picked up in a utility without steps to clamber into the back. Not recommended for senior citizens. However New (our guide and teacher) made that hiccup fade quickly. Our group of 8 all chose the five dishes we individually wanted to cook and off to the... More

We attended a midday half day course and we were blown away! My husband was hesitant about it but it ended up being the most fun in Chiang Mai. We now have a book full of common Thai recipes including our favorite curries and noodles. Can't wait to search through our Chinese market for the ingredients and cook them ourselves!

We just did a half day cooking class where we visited the market and cooked dinner. Our instructor Pear was knowledgeable, engaging, jolly, and fun! She made the class a real joy and shared true Thai culture.

The cooking stations were outside which was nice. Everything was extremely well organised and clean. Our cook had great English and with the... More

Yes, we learned to cook our favorite Thai dishes. Yes, we visited the market and took a train to the farm. Yes, we got a little cookbook and certificate at the end. But the highlight of the whole day was New. She's so full of energy, and it's contagious. She repeated things when necessary, gave us restaurant advice, and because... More
