We had a pleasant day but the cooking lesson was not as exceptional as described. I doubt there was anything organic in the food we cooked. This being said, the vegetables might very well come from the farm (nothing was bought from the market we visited). Professor spoke a good English and had a nice personality. Dishes cooked were very... More

We were recommended this by our hostel, and it definitely lived up to the hype! We decided to do the full day class. Sammie was up for a laugh the entire day, he taught us some Thai words, so we now know what to say in a restaurant! The cooking lessons were great, very informative, giving tips on similar types...

Had a wonderful day with Sammy at his farm! He picks you up first thing in the morning and takes you to a market where he teaches you about the different kinds of rice you will be using, and also shows how coconut cream is extracted. Then you go to his farm where he takes you through 5 recipes of... More

I've never taken a cooking class before, but I can't imagine how another class could be better. This class had it all: -a trip to the market where we saw coconut processing, among other delights. -rural, scenic, and safe drive to Sammy's farm -ingredients "tour" -individual workstations -cook 3 mains, 1 appetizer, 1 dessert -hammock naps -incredibly skilled instructors -professional...

It is difficult to choose a cooking class as there are many good ones in Chiang Mai, but Sammy fulfilled several requirements for us: great reviews, very good level of English, a full day course and a beautiful farm location. Cost: 1000 baht It was really fun and we learned loads. I specially liked all the ideas of European replacement... More

With fierce competition among the cooking classes in Chiang Mai, I was reliant on TripAdvisor to guide my choice. We had the perfect day with Sammy. A lot of the reviews focus on the humour / his special toilet, etc but make no mistake, the skills / recipes / cooking experience / choice of dishes are professionally delivered in a... More

I had a wonderful time at Sammy's farm. He is warm, engaging and funny and the course was great value for money - a whole day's worth of cooking experience including all ingredients and a cookbook. Definitely more than worth it - will recommend to all my friends travelling near Chiang Mai.

My husband and I are on our honeymoon travelling around South East Asia - we spent a few days in Chiang Mai at the end of December and a good cooking class was on our list to do! I researched online and founds sammy's, the itinerary for the day sounded perfect and reviews were so positive. I could not fault... More
