About
Da's farm was passed down to him from his parents and has been in his family for generations. When you visit the beautiful organic garden, he'll tell you more about the history and show you all of his organic herbs and vegetables. Da grows rice, various types of basil, green beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, bananas, papaya, pineapple, galangal, ginger, and much much more! Almost all of the ingredients that you cook will come from his garden, freshly picked!

Had a fantastic time on Da's farm. Da was a fantastic teacher, and was always there to help you and tell you what to do. The lessons took place of Da's organic farm among the rice fields. Not only were we able to cook 4 delicious dishes (and eat them of course!) but Da took us to the local food market which was fascinating as he showed us around. He also showed us around his garden and after we had eaten we lit giant lanterns into the night sky. Da also gave us a copy of the recipe book so we can keep cooking at home. The perfect end to a perfect afternoon provided by a lovely host. One of the best things I have done in Thailand.

I never cook. I don't like to, I don't have the patience, I'm not good at it. This was easily THE BEST thing I have done on any trip I have taken the last few years. It was so rewarding that I could look at what I made and think... I did that!! and it tasted good!!! There were only 4 of us, they took us to the market and went over products and then we went through the home garden and also got a tour and a taste and smell of the local products. The instruction was awesome and as bad as I was, he was patient and helped me figure out what to do. Must, Must, Must do!!! and if you need a place to stay in the country... ban chunsongsang home stay.. its 200meters away.

Must do if you are in Chiang Mai!!!

Da provides a fantastic, unique and personal cooking experience in his beautiful and tranquil home setting.

I cannot recommend this experience highly enough! My partner and I visited 2years ago and I returned again this year with 2 friends who also thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

He educates you on the different herbs and vegetables both home grown and whilst at the market, you then prepare and enjoy 4 delicious meals of your choice.

Da only accommodates max 6 people at anytime so perfect for small groups.

He provides bottled water, tea/coffee whilst you are there and a great recipe book to take home!

Thanks again Da for a lovely day! 😊

This was included in our Chiang Mai Driver Guide day. Mr Da is kind and very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed his garden/organic foods and the prep to make an absolutely wonderful meal! This is a must!

The only way I could convince my husband to participate in a cookery lesson was if a) the group size was small and b) if it was in a traditional setting ie not a big restaurant. Da's farm ticked the boxes.
We were picked up from our hotel in the Old City and taken to a local market, from there Da showed us how to select ingredients and also purchased any extra's needed. You choose the dishes you wish to cook whilst travelling to the market so if you have any special requests ie tofu for vegetarian, Da can collect them here. You can also pick up a couple of beers here to have with your meal too.

Then it was on to Da's farm which was lovely, quiet and tranquil. Great to see all manor of plants, herbs and vegetables.

Now onto the cooking. A good choice of traditional Thai dishes which were simple and quick to execute, my husband is now a mango sticky rice convert!!

My only slight criticism is that we were too full to really enjoy all four courses, having said that, I don't know how you would overcome that.

We would highly recommend Da's cooking school.

What a wonderful time! Da was so nice and knowledgeable. He gave us door to door service, showed us around a local market, and opened up his home to us tourists to teach us Thai cooking. It was great to get out of the city and see the countryside. Definitely one of the highlights of my vacation. Bonus: Super cute puppies!

We had an absolute blast at Da's, i wouldn't change a thing!! The local market was cool, The cooking itself was brilliant...and the recipe book you receive at the end just tops it all off. If you want a cooking class in Chiang Mai, Da's is definitely the one for you!

Our cooking class with Da was excellent! His place and his work are very well organized and learning cooking in there is just a pleasure. Da is an amazing teacher, very warm and kind person. You can ask him any question and he will get the answer for you. If you want learn how to cook real traditional Thai food in surrounding of rice field this is a place to do it.

I have no complaints about the afternoon that I spent with friends at Da's cooking school. We were picked up directly from our hostel in Chiang Mai, and drove about 30 minutes to the organic farm, with a stop at a local market on the way. Da was very friendly and told us a lot about the food and the farm, as well as showed us how to make four different dishes. You can choose one dish from four different categories. The food was delicious, and you get a recipe book at the end of the day! I'm definitely ready to make these meals here in Boulder! My only warning for future customers is to come with an empty stomach - there is SO much food! I would definitely recommend including Da's cooking class on your trip agenda.
