We booked the full day course (booked via website). Our chef and trainer Pukky wonderfully introduced us to Thai cuisine. We started the day with a lesson in vegetables and fruits on a Chang Mai market. After that, Pukky brought us to the farm where we learned what grows in the garden and how to use it for our dishes. Everybody could choose what to cook, and special wishes like gluten free products were possible and available. Pukky perfectly managed to guide everybody during the cooking sessions, no matter that we cooked different meals. The ingredients and meals were amazing. We were able to take away what we couldn't eat - it was simply too much to eat everything immediately. Finally, we got all recipes as pdf and printed book.

We booked the afternoon cooking class because we didn't have time for a whole day and I thought it was perfect even when going in on an empty stomach. We were picked up at 3:30pm from our hotel, went to a local market about 25 minutes from old town, shown ingredients that were to be used then got back in the van and taken another 25 minutes to the cooking location where they had a small farm in the back.

Our teacher was Tay and she did a great job teaching our group (Team Blue!) exactly what to do and why we use each ingredient. Tay was really energetic and kept it entertaining with jokes throughout the whole session. My food came out great. They had a lot of staff helping with the ingredient prep so we didn't waste any time doing menial with like peeling garlic or washing stuff. All you have to do is show up on an empty stomach with an eagerness to learn to cook and you're good to go. The food was great and it's fully hands-on so it will only be as fun as you and your group is willing to ask questions and participate. They also have beers (50 baht) and soda for sale there so you can have a drink or 4 while you're cooking to make it more enjoyable and relaxing. At the end of the cooking session, everyone was stuffed and we were dropped off by 9:30pm. For those of you who are wondering, yes you do get to choose from the menu whatever it is your want to cook. Each person gets their own cooking station. At the end, they also provide each person with their own cook book.

Highly recommended!

My son and I visited the organic farm for the all day cooking course. It was a really great experience, everyone was so welcoming and our teacher Nathalie was amazing!
The food we made was so good and they also taught us how to present each dish beautifully.
I would recommend the class to anyone interested in finding out more about thai food. The location and the garden are absolutely beautiful. Thank you for much a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Did the halfday course and it turned our to be really great. Got picked up right on time and got driven to the local market where we were told about different ingredients and products. Back at the farm I was slightly overwhelmed by the size and the sheer number of people but we got divided in groups of ten and everyone got his own cooking station. Our chef Tay was an energetic whirlwind who took us through the farms organic garden and then through the cooking course. She was pretty incredible in keeping an eye over our different menus, ingredients and stages of cooking so we all got our desired results with nobody burning his food. And delicious it was! She made it feel like we were the only group present and even made a personal note into everyones cook book.
All in all, great day. Thanks Tay!

We booked online for a half day cooking course which was really easy to do. They pick you up from your accommodation and drop you off afterwards too which is all included in the price. We made 3 Thai dishes and one side. It was very easy to follow and they accommodated to our vegetarian diet which was great. The teachers all speak good English and are very friendly which made it a relaxing and fun environment. The food we made was great and we would recommend trying it. We would recommend coming hungry as you make a lot of food.

Such a lovely experience, Tay was such a lovely and bubbly teacher who kept us smiling the whole time and was so helpful with teaching us about Thai cuisine. You will be surprised at the quality of the food you make - they grow loads of ingredients in the farm/garden and all are chemical free. You can personalise your dishes to how spicy/sour/sweet you like them. I truly recommend this cooking class for anyone who wants to learn more about the dishes of Thailand. Thank you Tay for such a lovely day! 🥰

Pukky picked us up from the Hotel right in Time and took us to the market to start the excursion about Thai Cuisine and there ingredients.
Then she drove us to the cooking school where we had a wonderful Day with super food made by our own - a tasty and a wonderful experience.
We really recommend this for everyone who loves thai cuisine as much as we do!
Pukky is best driver in Chang Mai 😉

We booked a whole day cooking class, so we prepaired many delicious dishes (curry and paste, stir fry, soup, salad and dessert). The class was really well organized, everything went smoothly and the food was delicious. In the morning we visited the local market, at the farm they have big garden with many home grown vegetables and herbs. Our guide Kikki was very kind and welcoming! We would definetely recommend it!😊

You choose 3 different categories of dishes: 1 curry, 1 stir fry, and 1 soup from a selection of 4 or 5 options. It's amazing how they can coordinate a group or 8 or 9 making their own dish all at the same time. There were two other groups on top of ourselves but the space is huge and there was no problem to accomodate us.

Our master chef was Lily, she was hilarious and genuinely fun. The unsung heroes are thr driver and people grabbing the used dishes and cleaning them. They kept everything running smooth.

Hats off to a great operation that was extermely affordable and enjoyable.

I've never written a review, so no clue what etiquette is. So I'll ramble through this.
We had a rowdy group of 8 adults who all had an absolute blast. Pooky, our master chef for the evening picked us up right on time at our home and took us straight to a local market where she very thoroughly explained her process in purchasing ingredients for the day. After the market, we took the half hour ride out to the farm. The grounds are beautiful and the garden is enormous (that might be the beer talking). It's a sizeable garden. Pooky toured us through the garden where we learned about their local ingredients. We then began to cook. You're assigned a station and given the option of a few items you'll be cooking. Curry, fried rice, etc. We drank, cooked, drank so on and so forth. All along, Pooky was right by our side, enthusiastically cheering us on and in my case, laughing.

The experience, food, everything was 5 stars. This particular note is for Pooky and ensuring that Smile Organic Farms is aware of what a talented and genuine employee they have. She made the experience what it was for us. Pooky matched our enthusiasm effortlessly and I'm sure there have been far easier groups to handle. Thank you Pooky for a wonderful night!
