Sammy is an enthusiastic man and an excellent host and teacher. He took us to the local market first and taught us important things about different types of rice and other ingredients which we thought was great. His farm is a stunning place to have a cooking course and he hand picks all the ingredients from it just before you... More

From the moment we were picked up Sammy and the team were so friendly and enthusiastic. We went to the market were Sammy told us about the different rice and then we had a look round. Then we headed to Sammys farm where he taught us about the local produce which he grows all himself and then we picked what... More

Fantastic cooking class that we did with our 2 boys (aged 5 and 8). Sammy and his wife were so accommodating with the kids, they even had kids' sized aprons. Interesting visit to the market first, before heading to their gorgeous farm. Great selection of wonderful Thai dishes to prepare. The only thing I would say is that the break... More

If you are going to take a cooking class in Chiang Mai I would absolutely recommend this one to everyone and anyone! Like I said the staff were so great, funny, helpful, and... More

An absolutely fantastic cooking course. Very informative and great fun. Sammy and his staff patiently work through several dishes ensuring novices and more experienced cooks get plenty out of the experience. The cookbook we were given at the end was brilliantly put together and has made it easy for us to recreate those tasty dishes since we got home. There... More

Both Sammy and his wife are incredibly kind and bubbly people. Both spoke amazing English and had an excellent sense of humour. We learnt tasty dishes and met some lovely people. Believe me you won't need breakfast before you go because you'll need space for the five amazing dishes you learn. Such a great day! even had a nap next... More

I definitely recommend doing this - at the beginning of your trip/time in Thailand if possible. It was great to learn about Thai cooking and helped us with ordering food for the rest of the trip. Sammy is super friendly and funny. I'm sure he'll tell you about "the most beautiful toilet in Thailand" :) They give you great options... More

A day at Sammy's is much more than just learning to cook! You spend the day with him and his wife, at their rice farm, in a beautiful part if the countryside just outside Chiang Mai. The selection and choice for cooking is excellent, even if you are vegetarian, and the quality of what we cooked that day makes me... More

We attended this cooking class today and thoroughly enjoyed it. You learn lots about Thai cooking and get to cook and eat a variety of wonderful dishes. Sammy, his wife, and all of the staff are excellent and very good at teaching you. The class is held on a beautiful farm away from the city which is nice for a... More
