I was recommended to Sammy's by my guesthouse and I had high expectations based on what they had to say. They were exactly right! Sammy's cooking school was so much fun and incredibly rewarding.

We visited Sammys Organic Cooking School after a friend recommended it and said that it was not to be missed - she was right! Sammy and his wife are so friendly, accommodating, and most of all hilarious. Great day, great food, and you even get to have a siesta in a hammock half way through! Thank you :) a must-visit...

Sammy's cooking class was amazing and well worth the price of admission. The full day class consists of the preparation of 5 separate courses using fresh ingredients from Sammy's farm with instruction by both Sammy and his wife on tradition Thai cooking. After preparing the first three courses, the feast begins. After a late lunch, there is nap time allotted... More

This farm& cooking course is amazing! I had such a great time there. I never thought Thai cooking would be this easy. Sammy is such a nice& funny guy. His wife also showed us how to cook the dishes, she's such a lovely person! Their farm is really like a paradise. From the famous "best bathroom in the world" 😂... More

We really recommend the cooking class with Sammy and his wife. It is very well organised and professional, very funny, interesting and soooo tasty. You start with a visit of the local market. The farm is a really awesome place in the middle of ricefields with the best toilet of thailand. We cooked 5 dishes which we could choose out... More

Fun cooking out of town, teaches you about the ingredients, shows you to cook, and then when you're full, you sleep in hammocks overlooking the rice fields. Sammy is quite a character too - very funny!

My time here rocketed by! Really fun class, awesome food, AMAZING location and Sami and his wife are brilliant teachers. And the toilet is also a highlight! Worth a visit, and many of the people in my class were on their second and third visits!

Sammy's Organic Thai Cooking is flat-out awesome! A fun, light-hearted day, Sammy and his wife keep you entertained while walking you through the preparation of 5 different Thai dishes. I should mention that after the first three dishes you've created, you then get to rest in one of the farms' many hammocks for roughly an hour, while he preps for... More

You have can choose between a lot of different dishes. Sammy does a good job in explaining and entertaining. Highly recommended if you want to get out of the town Chiang Mai and spend one day in a nice relaxed garden.

Decided to do a Thai cooking class with Sammy after reading all the excellent reviews and I wasn't disappointed. He certainly deserves his 5 star rating. I was picked up from my hotel and first stop was a visit to a local market. We then travelled about 30 minutes out of Chiang Mai to Sammy's Organic Cooking School in a... More
