Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

I absolutely loved my day at Orchid cookery school. The menu options are definitely flexible based on dietary requirements (for example I don't like seafood and I could have switched out prawns for chicken or pork for any of the dishes I wanted to make). It is extremely well organized. Everyone chooses the dishes they want to make then you... More

This was so worth it. Not too pricey for a great experience. They pick you up from your place and bring you there. The chef is super friendly and the food is delicious. She breaks down everything for you and you have a 5 course meal. Highly recommended

To start off, our confirmation email said to have a small breakfast before we were picked up. I took this to mean "make sure to eat something because it may be awhile before food is ready". I'm pretty sure they meant only eat a small lunch, because there will be more than enough food. My mistake. The cost isn't prohibitive,... More

Went today with a 9 and 6 year old. They were allowed to help us cook (too young for their own station as there are sharp knives and hot woks). We all had a great time and learned a lot. The food we made tasted delicious. The teacher was very professional, spoke excellent english and was very knowledgeable (she was... More

We had an amazing day with A. She's so friendly, funny and accommodating to all tastes. I.e. I can't have spicy food, and she was so helpful in telling me what to use and what not to use and still keep flavor. The market trip was really interesting and she thoroughly went through everything, including what you can use back... More

A is a brilliant teacher. The class is fun, exciting, and pretty easy to pick up. You cook 5 great dishes which you get to choose. The class is made up of around 10 people - we met people from every corner of the globe! Brilliant experience in Chiang Mai, a must do!

I was in Thailand for 18 days and the Thai Orchid Cooking School was the greatest thing I did while I was there. "A" does an awesome job teaching and the operation was smooth and seamless. I can't wait to get back and recreate the recipes, which will be easy because everyone gets their own cookbook. We had a group... More

My wife and 3 children all had fun at the cooking school. The Pad Thai and the banana /coconut dessert we made ourselves were the best we had in Thailand. The cooking school was well organized and informative, It was fun shopping for our ingredients in the local market. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting. Chiang Mai

I booked this trip for our family (2 adults and a 8 and 11 year old) about 3 months before we did it. Communication was great and we weren't even asked to pay a deposit. We were picked up by A at our CM hotel and taken to her house together with the othe 6 people that day. We made... More
