Sammy's is a family run concern,with both Sammy and his wife doing the teaching. They are a great couple and you learn to make 5 dishes as well as taste a few more! It was certainly worth the money and you won't need to eat until the next day!

My husband and I had the best day at Sammy's farm. Sammy's wife came to pick us up and we went to meet Sammy at the market, where he taught us about different rice and how to make fresh coconut cream and let us wander around the bustling market for 10 mins. Then we headed off to the rice farm,... More

Sammy is just awesome! Entertaining and funny, he will explain you all the spices, herbs and ingredients used for Thai recipes! At the market, you will discover the basics of rice cooking and coconut milk making. Then, at his beautiful farm outside the city, in the middle of rice fields, you will cook 5 courses with the supervision of Sammy's... More

We went to Sammy's Cooking school in Dec and I have to say, it was the best food we ate in all of Thailand. Sammy is the nicest and funniest guy around and had great knowledge about food and cooking. He really cares about the students in his class. We had such an incredible and delicious day. Don't look anywhere... More

Sammy is a funny, intelligent, interesting, and truly lovey chap. Do not bother looking elsewhere for a great day cooking with spectacular countryside views. Such fun! We met some really great personalities here, too, which meant that we laughed all day. Book it! Thanks Sammy! X

I can't recommend enough (I've told everyone I know is going to Chiang Mai that they HAVE to do this)! We had a wonderful tour of the market, seeing how coconut milk is made. Then it was off to learn our first 3 recipes. I love how Sammy and his wonderful wife--both of whom are HILARIOUS and incredibly sweet--were able... More

Highly recommended, was told about Sammy's cooking school by a friend. Did not disappoint you are met by Sammy who takes you to a local market to gain an understanding about Thai ingredients then you are taken to Sammy's organic farm where the school is based to cook several Thai dishes by Sammy and his wife. Highly recommend it, Sammy... More

We had a great day with Sammy and his wife at their beautiful farm. The day was seamless; everything flowed perfectly, from the cooking instruction, introduction to our fresh ingredients , siesta on the incredible hammocks and completing the day with lots of laughs and full bellies. We highly recommend Sammy's Organic Farm!

Sammy was a great character, full of smiles and jokes. The farm was beautiful, cooking was well taught and delicious and loved having a nap in the hammocks after. And of course his outdoor toilet was quite impressive as he mentioned a few times!
