About
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.

Pom and Vasin, the owners, were truly inspirational in imparting their knowledge, skill and love of their homelands food. Firstly we went to the local market to see (touch and smell!) the range of foods we would be using. Then back to the school, coffee and our first demonstration. We cooked, we ate, then another demonstration and then we cooked and ate again, then a further demonstration and more cooking and eating. My husband, who is definitely not a cook, loved it and we came away satiated with lovely food.

As a self confessed foodie, I loved this school! From the time they picked me up at my condo, to the market to choose the fresh ingredients for the menu, to the cooking class itself. Visan and Palm are very articulate in explaining how the ingredients fuse together to give the taste of the dish. How to prepare them by doing them yourself. And finally to sitting down and eating your own creation. Simply an outstanding time and experience for me.

My husband and I shared a personal cooking experience with Vasin and Pom whilst on holiday in Chaing Mai. They collected us from our hotel and took us to their local market to buy our ingredients. We were asked what Thai food we enjoyed and made various meals to suit us both. They cooked each course first then we followed by cooking our own dishes. We then finished off our day by eating our prepared food. A fabulous and relaxed day before returning to our hotel. Would recommend this to anyone wishing to have a friendly and personal cooking experience.

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed this activity on our trip to Thailand. We did a morning class and got lucky being the only two in the class that day. The portion in the market was very interesting and educational. The food was superb, some of the best I have ever made. Pom and Vasin were great teachers and such nice people. If you love either Thai food or cooking, I highly recommend their class!

We attended a half day school here as part of a Thailand tour. It was a really unusual experience, and well worth doing: even the reluctant cooks amongst us enjoyed the very relaxed and highly professional class. We learned how to cook four courses, and surprised ourselves at how easy and delicious they turned out to be. The kitchen was spotlessly clean, the food was of high quality and beautifully fresh. As soon as we had made a dish, we took it to the dining area to eat the result. By the time we got back to our workstations, they had been cleaned and the ingredients and pans for the next recipe were ready for us to use.At the end of the morning we each received the owners' cookery book.

This was a great experience! Vasin picked us up at the hotel and took us to his local market. He told us about the market in general and the ingredients. Then we went to his home where next to his house is the cooking school. It‘s modern and the set up is great. We learned how to cook four meals from Vasin and Pom. It was fun and tasted delicious! He even showed us the herbs and lemons in his garden and we saw some water buffalo!

What a great and fun experience with Cooking At Home. We started at the market which was super interesting. At the school we learned to make 4 dishes and got to enjoy all the yummy food at end. Pom and Vasin are super organized and made it all seem so easy. Loved getting their cookbook to take home. Highly recommend.

My sister and I were traveling around Chiang Mai, and wanted to take a cooking course. The travel agent in the lobby of our hotel booked us with "Cooking @ Home" and I couldn't have been more pleased with the selection. Once Pom and her husband picked up all the participants at their hotels, we were taken to a great food market where we learned about the ingredients we would be using. We even got a few minutes to look around and try/buy things on our own before heading to the culinary school.
The course itself takes place at Pom's home, in a beautiful (and super clean) outdoor kitchen. Every student has their own cooking station and all of the ingredients are neatly prepared to ensure a smooth day. Once you cook your dishes (which are DELICIOUS) you get to eat them at an outdoor patio with a view of the paddies. It is a wonderful and relaxing atmosphere.
The course is taught by Pom and her sister, and because there are two of them, each student gets individual attention. They are also very friendly and welcoming! If you book with Cooking @ Home you won't be disappointed! It was a day well spent, and at a very reasonable price!

Had a fantastic time at our cooking lesson. Instructions are given clearly by 3 wonderful teachers who are incredibly attentive and hands on. You won't believe the amazing dishes you can churn out under their careful guidance. My girlfriends and I made green curry, tom yum and pad thai which were far better than anything that we ate at any restaurants in Chiang Mai (compliments to the chefs!). They keep the cooking stations impeccably clean. The outdoor cooking area is breezy and well ventilated. After cooking, we dined at the outdoor patio area which overlooked a beautiful field with a gorgeous setting sun. The cooking school also has their own garden which probably accounts for how fresh the ingredients were. Best part is the beautifully presented recipe book you are gifted with to further explore you culinary adventure. Very highly recommended!
