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.

I visited Thailand for the first time. The group I was with traveled to different cities within the northern part of the country, including Chiang Mai. As one of our activities we learned to cook Thai food with Cooking At Home. The owner and her husband (I'm horrible with names so I cannot remember theirs) picked us up from our... More

We were met at the local market by the owner of the school where we were taken on a quick tour. He explained the various foods that were for sale there. After that we were taken to his home where there is a covered area and many cooking stations. Master Chef, Pom, then explained a little bit about Thai food... More

I had heard that a cooking class was something to do while visiting Thailand. I was surprised when my 22 year old son wanted to take a class. I was even more surprised about how much I enjoyed the class and the food! We visited the market first, which was a worthwhile education in itself. Pom was very informative showing... More

I would recommend this cooking class to everyone. You get to make a delicious four course meal after exploring a local market to discover the fresh ingredients you will be provided. Pom and her husband are welcoming and kind. It was extremely comfortable to cook all dishes with their expert guidance. Loved it!

For someone who has never been to Thailand, I never thought I could learn so much about food and culture in two days! I loved starting the day in the market. Pom and her husband were very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. Once we got to the kitchen, I was stunned how quickly delicious meals came together. Overall,... More

We booked with Pom's Cooking @ Home after initially scheduling with another cooking school. When the first place was no longer able to keep our reservation - they recommended Pom.

Pom is a great teacher and an even better cook! We had such a lovely evening watching a demonstration of three dishes and cooking them ourselves, and the best part was we got to eat them on beautiful surroundings. The Pad Thai was as good as any we have eaten so far in Thailand - in fact it was fresher... More
