We were collected from our hotel in downtown Chiang Mai just after breakfast and driven about 20 minutes out of town to the Lemongrass Cookery School.
On arrival, our initial impression was sheer delight. The kitchen is spacious and cleverly designed for its purpose. There is even an old fashioned open fireplace on the back wall.
Jiab, our teacher for the day is clearly passionate about Thai cooking and she has a natural ability to pass on her skills, thanks to her friendly easygoing manner.
There was a scheduled coffee break mid morning, during which we were encouraged to wander freely around the flower and herb gardens.
During this period, Jiab took time to answer some questions on alternative ingredients for the benefit of those of us living in a cooler climate.
At the conclusion of the course, we were all reluctant to leave this magical place. When it came to goodbyes,- it was like leaving old friends.
We went to several recommended outings as suggested in our guide book, many of which were very enjoyable, but our visit to Lemongrass was easily the highlight of our three week holiday in Thailand. We'll be back, but next time we'll skip the hotel breakfast.

My partner and I had the pleasure of attending the Lemongrass Cooking School. We were impressed from the second we got there. They have a beautiful setting with an immaculate outdoor cooking area. The warm hospitality of Jiab and Michael was incredible.
Chef Jiab was very prepared. Everything was clean, organized and well planned. They even provided sun hats for when we were out in the garden learning and selecting fresh herbs for our meals. Jiab was very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. She made the experience a complete joy.
Once our herbs were selected, we went back and Jiab washed the herbs in preparation for use.
They provided cold water and a fan to make me comfortable in the heat. The meals were delicious in every way and Jiab explained everything as we moved through the task. She was clear and very easy to understand. Michael gave us an enjoyable tour to show us some of his antique collectables which was also very interesting. Coffee in the outside coffee gazebo. Everything was so worth the small token we paid to attend. They picked us up and took us back to the hotel, they provided all the food and beverages, they welcomed us like one of the family.
I will definately recommend this school and will hopefully return one day to visit and learn some more from Jiab and Michael.
I wish them great success with this venture..

I Thoroughly enjoyed my day at the lemongrass cookery school. it exceeded all my expectations. Chef Jiab was so patient guiding us through each dish and the setting and ambiance were stunning. Jiab and her partner Michael were great hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and take care of every need. When I finished the day a mango and sticky rice washed by a cold Chang I didn't want to go home!

Last week when holidaying in Chiang Mai, Thailand, my partner and I were recommended to do a cookery course as part of our Chiang Mai experience. The one recommended was called 'The Lemongrass Cookery School and I must say that it was great fun.Usually, my partner does the cooking because I'm not too good. But the instructress, called Jiab, was an absolute honey and made the whole cookery-learning event a piece of cake. I couldn't believe how interesting and easy it was. Much to the point, the surroundings were brilliant and to get to the kitchens, we went through the most beautiful garden. The whole experience was great and I really do recommend Lemongrass to anyone wanting to learn how to cook Thai.

Chef Jiab, aka my sweet and talented mother, is a great chef and host to any event. She cooks everyday and is known to be the best thai cook among the families and friends. So you're wondering if the school might be a place for you to enjoy a soothing day without the need to worry and the chance to learn a few tricks in the kitchen with an additional of great company. Well, look no further cause this is it.

I was very fortunate to be able to spend a day at the Lemongrass Cookery School Chiang Mai.
I loved every minute of it - it's a perfect place to learn about Thai cooking methods, different spices, plants and vegetables, to spend time with wonderful people, not to mention great meals in a gorgeous outdoor kitchen.
Chef Jiab - is kind and knowledgeable, and everyone at the villa makes you feel at home.
And there was a desert that she prepared for us, it sounds so simple - mango with sticky rice - but in fact, the process of making rice is rather complex.
I would definitely recommend this school to everyone visiting Chiang Mai.

This was a very affordable cooking lesson costing 1500 Bath each. We cooked 8 dishes and ate every one. The morning started at 9am with a visit to the market. This allowed us to understand how the markets work as they actually look totally chaotic. The food we cooked was delicious and a very accurate list of instructions was provided for each dish. There is no aircon in the kitchen and unfortunately the fans had to be turned off once the cooking was in progress. Otherwise I would have given this school five stars.
