Sammy is hilarious and a great cooking instructor! Sammy picked us up at our hotel in the morning, took us to the market for some shopping and then to his farm. We got to smell and taste the ingredients (lemongrass, Thai basil, ginger etc.) before we started to cook. We were asked to select 5 Thai dishes that we wanted... More

Sammy is fantastic and hilarious. He takes you to a legit Thai market and explains the ingredients and other Thai foods. Then you go to his farm where he shows you more food and how it grows. You pick your menu (5 dishes and there are two or three options for each dish) and then he teaches you how to... More

This class was recommended to us by our hostel and it was perfect. Sammy is an excellent host and possibly the funniest person in Thailand. We learnt to cook 5 different dishes which were all delicious. But it's not just the cooking and learning about the ingredients that makes this a great thing to do, you have an afternoon siesta...

Had a brilliant day at Sammy's farm learning to cook 5 Thai dishes. The trip to the market was fascinating and Sammy and his family's farm is beautiful and so relaxing - especially the lunchtime naps in the hammocks! Sammy and his wife are a beautiful, welcoming couple and very funny - the whole day was perfect and we would... More

This was a memorable experience, learning the ingredients from picking at the market, to cooking it yourself. Sammy, his wife, and staff were friendly and answered all the cooking questions that came to mind. Don't eat breakfast before coming, because you will leave in a "food coma". It's for any and all ages, as there were kids in our class... More

It was a super funny cooking experience! Sammy is great, he keeps making jokes every minute. He is just hilarious! About hiding chilli's in the food, his toilet and hammocks. We learned to cook different kind of foods. Had to make our own curry paste. For the first few dishes, we had to chop everything ourselves. To save some time,... More

The full day cooking class should not be missed on your trip to Chiang Mai. We were picked up from our hostel and driven to a local market where Sammy explained some of the local produce to do us (there was 7 people in total in our group). We were then driven to his family farm which is about 40... More

Samy and his family are very nice people, they are lovely, with a beautiful farm. Food full of flavor, but we loved to learn more. We only made a dish all by ourselves, the other dishes we even cut the ingredients, we receive every thing prepared for each recepie and just follow the "orders" of Samy's wife. It's ok, we... More

Loved this class! Food was easy and delicious, Sammy and his wife were both so fun and helpful, and I loved that it was on their farm, tucked away from the main city. Would definitely recommend it!
