        Great cooking experience
        Great experience, Ann was amazing and we had so much fun! First to the market to buy ingredients and after that start cooking!! We made Thai green curry, pad Thai, pad krapao and spicy Thai sausage ( sai ua) All turned out great thanks to Ann (and our knife skills;)). Thanks Ann!!! I would recommend cooking with Ann to everyone!

        Excellent cooking class
        We chose Cooking with Ann because we wanted to learn more about Northern Thai food and Ann's extensive menu gave us the opportunity. We have been to several cooking classes when visiting Thailand and Ann's is one of the best. Ann picked us up from our accommodation, talked to us about what we wanted to cook as we drove to a local market. Ann purchased the fresh food we needed to cook the recipes we chose, and told us about the unfamiliar food at the market. Back at Ann's house we got to work cooking - preparing the ingredients needed for the food we chose. The class was a joy and a delight. We learnt about the northern Thai people and the food they ate. The food we prepared was delicious. So pleased we came to this cooking class. Highly recommend Cooking with Ann

        Amazing class with amazing Ann
        My bf and I cooked with Ann on a rainy day in Chiang Rai. My bf is a chef and we had the most amazing half day with the lovely/cheeky Ann. We went to an organic market to pick our menu and then back to her house to cook. She speaks perfect English and is very funny. She answered all our questions and the food was amazing. We made enough to take home for our lunch the next day. If you want to do a cooking course this is the one to pick! Thank you Ann x

        Northern Thai Cooking Experience
        Cooking with Ann in her kitchen was a lovely experience. I've done a number of cooking lessons in the past and most classes comes with a preset menu of dishes. What stands out with Ann's classes is having the flexibility of picking the dishes you would like to learn/cook. Of course it's a no brainer that I would want learn Northern Thai dishes! 😁 Ann is friendly, patient and knowledgeable throughout the class. What's included in the session is that you get to learn to cook 4 Thai dishes of your choice, a trip to the local market to select the ingredients for the dishes you'll be making and a round-trip transportation from your hotel to Ann's place. The recipes of the dishes you learned will be sent via email after your session.

        Great Class!
        We highly recommend saving your cooking class in Thailand for Chiang Rai, because Cooking with Ann was a really lovely experience.  Ann is a chef who was born in Chiang Rai.  We discovered very quickly that she is a great teacher of Thai cuisine.  She displays a deep and thorough knowledge of all the highly diverse regional cooking styles of Thailand. Ann conducts the classes in her home kitchen that has every cooking utensil imaginable.  She teaches individuals, couples, and large groups.  You choose 4 dishes you would like to cook (if one of them requires a paste, then this counts as 1 dish).  She wants her students to be very conscious of where the food comes, so we stopped at the local farmers' market before the class.  This was a great experience because we got to ask her about all the different southeast Asian produce that we were not familiar with.  We talked about the dishes we wanted to make and purchased groceries based on our choices. We told her we wanted to make khao soi, a lemongrass curry, and something with pumpkin.  We found out how complicated khao soi can be, but Ann taught it to us in such a simple way that we now cook it often.  The price you pay for the class includes the groceries and transportation.  Her English is great and it was easy to communicate.  Her popularity is international: the week we did our class, she was involved in teaching chefs from Spain about Thai cuisine.  We are very glad we found her and recommend her to all of our friends visiting Thailand.

        Superb personal cooking experience
        What a great experience of Thai cooking, starting with a really enjoyable and informative walk around the local market. Ann asked what choice of dishes we would like to cook and it was was great that there where no restrictions in what you could cook. Once at Ann’s kitchen it was a very personal and she made the whole time very relaxing and fun. There was no rushing and we cooked enough food to feed us for a week!! Overall recommend any person wanting to experience authentic Thai cooking to give this course a go. Thanks again Ann

        Relaxed informative and fun
        We had such fun learning how to cook Thai food with Ann. Ann knows that we were vegetarian so not an issue at all. The market was great - not at all touristy and we saw many unfamiliar foods. We were also amazed at how cheap everything was. Back at Ann’s house we had fun learning how to cook in a relaxed and informative environment and left full up and happy! Highly recommended as an authentic cookery experience!

        Great cooking class with one on one attention
        I did a cooking class with Ann last week and it was great. The food we cooked tasted wonderful, I choose to do some northern dishes which I found to be very good. Ann loves to cook and is a very good teacher. You think that 4 dishes maybe to many to take on in one 3 - 4 hour class but we had plently of time and had time for a nice talk with Ann over our meal at the end. I would highly recommend Cooking With Ann for anyone wanting an authentic cooking experience.

        Best cooking experience ever!
        My friend and I had the most amazing experience cooking with Ann! I was super pleased to find out we would be able to cook not one, not two, but FOUR dishes. Ann picked us up from our hostel and brought us to the local grocery store, where she let us taste and smell a bunch of fragrant local ingredients. She also shared a lot of information about the ingredients, which was super interesting and informative. Ann even bought us extra fruit as snacks for later, which was extremely kind of her. My friend is a vegetarian and I am not - Ann accommodated for all dietary restrictions. We then arrived at Ann’s kitchen where we prepared and cooked our food - Tom Yum, Pad Thai, Green Curry, and Mango Sticky Rice. I liked how we were involved in every step, as opposed to having the ingredients previously prepared for us; it gave us the full hands-on experience. Making the meal was a lot of fun as Ann (who speaks fluent English, by the way!) and we chatted the whole time. Time really flew by and when it was time to go home, we were all really sad. I’ve heard cooking classes are very competitive and can revolve around basic dishes in Chiang Mai - for this reason, if you are looking for a true immersing experience, opt for Ann’s cooking class! I would highly recommend her classes to you and all my friends/family; you will not regret it. It goes without saying that the food was PHENOMENAL. I don’t think I can buy Thai food ever again without missing what I made here!! She even packs the leftovers for you - my friend and I had enough for two more meals the following day. I hope to be able to return to this class one day as I will hold the memory close to me. Ann is the sweetest lady. Thank you so much for everything, Ann! :)

        Amazing experience!
        We had a wonderful time with Ann. She's so warm, friendly, and a great instructor! We got to pick 4 dishes to make and then Ann took us to the local market to pick up ingredients for the dishes. Ann can also accommodate any dietary needs and customize any dish to your liking since all the ingredients are bought fresh from the market. She even got us some extra fruit to have for snacks later, and showed us some local fruit that we got to try for the first time. During the class Ann noticed that my friend and I were a little sick and made us some tea and gave us some traditional Thai medicine for our coughs. After the market Ann took us back to her place where we got to prepare the meals. The food we made was amazing and was the best Thai food I had during my trip! We got to take home our leftovers (there was a lot) with containers Ann provided. Another plus is that Ann is very environmentally friendly and avoids plastic! She used banana leaves to line the paper containers and brought her own cloth shopping bag to the market. If you're looking to do a cooking class in Chiang Rai I highly recommend Ann's class!

        Do it. You must do it
        Ann is the best. Thank you Ann so much for a wonderful day. We enjoyed going to the market and picking out the ingredients. And smelling and tasting local fruit.Woaw. And the cooking, oh my. It was so much fun trying to make thai food. And we got to choose our own menu..So great. Ann speaks English very well so no problems with communication at all. And a big plus..she (and us) makes everything without msg and you can make glutenfree and cow milkfree food, no problem. We liked the fact that it is only for maximum 4 people. Hope to come back and do it again. Thank you for all the tips with cooking and a great experience

        Great cooking class with wonderful Ann!
        Ann is a great teacher and wonderful person. She picked me up from the hotel and we went to the local market to buy ingredients for our dishes. It was a great experience. We spent few times cooking together and chating about life. I had a feeling i know Ann for ages. She speaks very good english, so it was easy to understand everything. I can highly recommend Ann school. Loved every minute.

        This cooking class is really amazing! Ann is wonderful and made sure that we had a great time. We got to choose the menu and it was only me and my friend in the class :) Thanks, Ann, for making our last evening in Thailand one of the most memorable!

        Amazing class!!!
        Great experience. From going to the market to pick up the ingredients to preparing them and cooking them. great time for sure and Ann is pretty amazing at what she does. I must say for me being the first time ever cooking Thai food the food came out super delicious, that by the end of the class I ended up rolling out of her kitchen. Some of the things that set her apart from the other classes is that she lets you pick your own menu. That’s right people you make it your own experience. Not like the others classes that are already a preset menu. So I Definitely recommend this class!!! Cons: none

        What an awesome authentic experience!
        Ann was fabulous! She picked my husband and I up at the hotel we were staying at and drove us to one of the markets she shops at. The market experience was awesome and unique. We shopped for all the ingredients needed for the menu I picked out. I love that she lets you prepare what you want to learn to cook instead of a fixed menu. We spent four hours in her kitchen preparing soups, pad Thai, Pad and a delicious sticky rice with mango for dessert. It was a very hot afternoon so she ran out and got us beers too. Awesome teacher and a great person. We are so glad we chose her and obtained a real cooking experience. Thanks so much Ann and hope to see you in the near future!

      Cooking with Ann is a must !! Ann greeted us at our hotel then took us to a night market to pick our ingredients!! We are gluten allergic so it was a bonus that Ann was highly knowledgeable and was able to adjust all cooking dishes to accommodate us . We then went to her beautiful kitchen where she taught us how to cook traditional Thai dishes and answered all our questions along the way . She also has a cute dog named mini a plus as we are dog lovers . We highly recommend Ann if you want to learn and take back home the knowledge to make your own Thai dishes . Thanks Marta and Stephen

      We got in contact with ann for a morning cooking class & she responded immediately and friendly. So she picked us up in the morning and we felt imnediately at home with her. She took such amazing care of us and listened, explained and helped. She showed us through the market, we could try a ton of things and left the market (already much food with us) to get to ann. She has a comfy little hut in front of her home as a kitchen with working space for everyone. We cooked 4 meals and even an extra salad with mushrooms we saw at the market. You can tell Anns a pro in the kitchen, you can ask her anything. She is utterly patient and nice and had a really great sense of humour. Time flew by and we didnt want to leave. Book this class with Ann, we highly recommend it! Thank you Ann for everything. You are simply amazing.

      This class was awesome. I loved the fact that Ann allowed us to cook whatever we wanted. We also went to the market to buy the ingredients and in there we tried different fruits and sweets that the locals eat. I also liked that we cooked everything ourselves.. My husband and I cooked our own dishes.
      In other cooking classes we both split the task within ourselves and sometimes within other people that are taking the class.
      The mistake we made was that we ate before the class thinking we were not going to eat until the end of the class but we started eating in the market. Also, we cooked a lot of dishes and we got full pretty quick. Regardless, the good was great. Ann is very friendly and welcoming.
      We loved the class and highly recommend her.

      Overall the class was excellent. Started with being collected from the accommodation by Ann where we then went to a local market and walked around a grabbed the items we needed for our dishes. Then off we went to Ann's place where the kitchen set up was great. She is very patient. We prepared all our dishes and she explained and gave tips along the way. Once all the prep was done we cooked them all up and then got to eat them all. Sooo much food that we couldn't finish it all so she packed it up and we took it back to the hotel. Highly recommend this.

      Great cooking class today with Ann.
      It was just the two of us, so we chose our own dishes, from what we had seen from our time in Northern Thailand.
      We only booked the night before and Ann picked us up from the hotel, took us to the market to select fresh produce for dishes we discussed.
      She was able to cater for all allergies, and offer dishes that suit.
      Once in the kitchen she showed us how to put the dishes together.
      I’ve tried cooking Green curry, Pad Thai before, but the lessons we learnt will stay with us forever in our cooking.
      We even made our own Northern sausage from scratch.
      We would recommend a course with Ann while is Chiang Rai.
      Book in !

      Ann gave us an authentic cooking experience. We had a great time going through the market she explained many different items that are staples to Thai cooking. She also had us try a variety of items throughout the market. We then went back to her house and cooked in a kitchen area she has setup for her cooking classes. We had a great time cooking and talking with Ann. She is very kind and her vast
      Knowledge of cooking made it so much fun to cook and learn new techniques. I was worried I would forget how to make the four dishes but she sent the recipes to me. She even took pictures for us. Thank you Ann!

      Wow! Had a blast taking this class with Ann. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and a joy to learn from. She let us choose a custom menu of 4 items and I feel like we had a great grasp of the ingredients and the dishes themselves by the end. She also helped us navigate a Thai market and showed us how to find the freshest ingredients. Came famished and left stuffed, with leftovers! Highly recommend taking this class if you're in Chiang Rai - very worth it!

      We took part in Ann’s cooking class this week and it was amazing, definitely our favourite thing in Chiang Rai. Ann is really lovely and has such good patience even for beginners level. It was really interesting visiting the markets and learning how to cook from scratch. Thanks so much Ann!
