Each day, our students are picked up from Chiang Mai and driven to the cookery school. On a typical day our lessons begin with a trip to a local country market, guided by our experienced cooking instructors so that students learn how to select and buy the fresh Thai ingredients that they will need for that day's cooking lesson.

For many, this tour of the morning market is an unforgettable experience in itself, leaving them with lasting memories of new sights, sounds and wonderful spicy aromas, as well as a broader knowledge of Thai fruits, vegetables and spices. This experience and new knowledge is especially useful to those who want to impress their friends back home with delicious Thai cuisine.

  

Returning to the delightful semi-rural setting of the cookery school itself, our instructors take students through every stage of the cooking process, until at the end of the session students have the opportunity to taste and eat their creations. Our students learn by doing, not merely watching, so each course is full of activity and fun.

While visiting Thailand, a cooking class is a must. This one was more than what we expected! We were picked up from our hotel and taken to a fresh food market where we learned a lot about ingredients used in Thai cuisine. We even got to see how fresh coconut milk is made! After grabbing a snack at this market... More

Excellent half day course staring with a visit to the local food market to look at local ingredients, then back to the kitchen to learn to cook soup, GTC, Pak Thai and pumpkin custard - the teaching was excellent, at just the right speed - everything demonstrated first ( with a large overhead mirror, so everyone can see.) then we...

If you want to learn to cook Thai food, this is the premier cooking class. Located next to the home of Pom and Pidet in Sankhampaeng, bordering a field of green with grazing water buffalo. The set up for Pom's demonstrations, the immaculate, well laid out cooking areas and lovely place to enjoy eating the foods you've prepared leave nothing... More

If I hadn't had this as part of an organized tour of Thailand, I never would have signed up for a cooking class. Who wants to do that on their vacation?, I thought. I'm so glad I was 'forced' to do this because it was fantastic! This very kind, friendly couple picked me up at my hotel and drove me... More

We booked a session here because some friends recommended it, and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. We actually happened to be booking during a slow time (rainy season), so we were the only people in the class! We first went to the market to pick out fresh ingredients for our cooking, and then basically had a... More

My husband, three teens, and I took an evening class with Pom in June 2016, and we couldn't be happier with the experience we had! The food was delicious, the market where we shopped was a treat for our kids (authentic & very educational), the facility where we cooked was well-stocked & comfortable, and we loved feeling like invited guests...

This was the best activity my husband and I booked. Beautiful, warm, informative and helpful hosts/teachers. An informative tour through a vibrant local thai market. Gorgeous setting next to a rice paddy. The class is held in an outdoors kitchen with adjoining outdoor dining area. We suprised ourselves with our 3 courses and can't wait to try out more thai...

On our Honeymoon we took the class with Pom and her husband. The building on the side of their home is setup like a cooking show and the neighbouring structure is setup like a restaurant.

My husband and I spent a wonderful day with Vasin and Pom learning about Thai ingredients, food and their lifestyle. They are delightful hosts who were happy to answer all of our questions. I love to cook so this was a real pleasure for me, but my husband is more used to eating and washing the dishes. However, under Pom's... More
