They pick you up from your hotel/hostel in a truck/van thingy around 8:30 (depending on who they picked up first). You go to a market, grab a fruit smoothie for breakfast and some fresh fruit. We were given the menu of what we could cook. You had a bunch of choices. They were also accommodating to food allergies. I am... More

Did a one day course with 2 adults and 2 children. Sammy's was recommended to us by a friend and offers typical Thai standards for menu choices. Prompt pick up from hotel and host gave brief tour around a local market. Beautiful setting in paddy fields. The toilet is also great too. What set this apart for us was that... More

We had a very good time at Sammy's Organic Thai cooking class. You first go to the market where Sammy explained you some stuff about the thai ingredients (rice, coconuts, ...) then, you spend the day cooking at his farm. I also liked the nap after the lunch :-) It was really nice to get out of Chiang Mai for... More

Just spent a day at sammy's farm. It was ok but really not exeptional. First we were a group of 15 which is far too much. We couldnt have personal advises or help. The farm was beautiful but we didnt visit it and I doubt it is truely organic. We cooked 5 dishes, we did the first one 100% by... More

Our group of 3 had a perfect day at Sammy's cooking class. His recipes were on point and the meal that each of us produced was absolutely delicious. I already love to cook and try new recipes but I still learned a ton and had a great time, my husband never EVER cooks and he enjoyed it just as much!... More

A really great day. Sammy and his family are wonderful hosts full of jokes, energy and knowledge. You're picked up from your hotel between 83:0 and 9:00 am in a tuktuk style bus and are taken to a local market where Sammy learns a little about all the guests and explains what to look for at the market. You then... More

I don't know about the other cooking classes, but Sammy's one is amazing. The farm is placed in a beautiful countryside, surrounded by rice plantations. You get to cook a bunch of different Thai disses, and they even give you advice about how to find the ingredients at home. You have some time for a nap after lunch and they... More

Sammy's cooking class is definitely the highlight of my Chiang Mai trip. I really enjoyed being on his farm and learning about Thai cooking from Sammy and his wife. Their delivery was friendly and clear. Also, we had a great variety of recipes to choose from including vegetarian options.

Sammy's Cooking Class was one of our favorite memories from our honeymoon! Sammy and his wife offer great hospitality and are fun! They picked us up from our hotel, brought us to the market, and then to his property where the cooking class is located. We had the best time learning how to make authentic thai food and cooking it!... More
