This cooking class was recommended by my hostel and I did not regret taking the recommendation! They pick you up at your hostel and take you to a local market (ours was just across the street) and explain to you different fresh produce you will be using. The main attraction is their farm and school, about 40 minutes outside of... More

What an amazing experience! If you're in Chiang Mai please I urge you to live this experience! Pem is simply delightful and has impeccable cooking skills. Not only does he teach you about food, he teaches you to cook from your soul.

I love to cook, and though the class is probably on par with all the others, I did enjoy it. The atmosphere was great, and I liked that we learned 6 dishes in a half day. Others that cost about 50 baht less (< $2 difference) were cheaper but only did 5 courses, one of which was a spring roll,... More

Where do I start?? Well the name of this cookery school does not lie, it's an excellent cooking course filled with expert knowledge, brilliant teaching and excellent jokes. Perm was our teacher on the day and is also the owner of the school. He picked us up along with people from other hotels and hostels and whisked us off to... More

My wife had done cookery courses in Chiang Mai before but I'd never been interested. This time she convinced me that I would enjoy it and I have to admit that I did! Picked up at our hotel, it was nearly an hour later when the full bus stopped at the market for the first leg of the course -... More

This was a great time. A cook from the school comes and picks you up at your hostel, takes you to a market and explains ingredients. Then it's off to the school, which is on a small back road surrounded by fields. The course was full of lots of good tips and tricks and they give you a cookbook to... More

We had heaps of fun at our Thai cooking class in Chiang Mai. We were picked up and dropped off at our guesthouse, and had an amazing four or five hours going to the fresh veggie market and making food! My husband and I made six (!) dishes each, with little, sometimes a lot, of help. Must-do when in Chiang... More

Went here on a Contiki tour and it was truly amazing. The food was absolutely amazing, the instructor was so funny and easy to follow. We had so much fun and ended the evening with amazing food we cooked ourselves. Definitely would recommend to everyone!
