About
A family-run home cooking class established in 2001. We began with a small class size. Even though our business has seen tremendous growth, we have decided that this size maintains the personalization and individual attention that each student deserves. Yui (Siripen Sriyabhaya), Thailand's international TV chef still teaches every dish in every class to guarantee the highest quality of instruction. Her expertise attracts a variety of students such as, TV chefs, executive chefs, culinary school teachers, international Thai cooking instructors, food columnists, cookbook authors, tourists, and food lovers.Yui's unique blend of art and science truly make cooking exciting, fun, and easy to follow. When students cook these delicious dishes in class, they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to be able to recreate these dishes at home.

Too good and its true!
Jan 2020
As someone who works in the tourism industry, I am always very skeptical of any activity with nearly 100% perfect reviews, but this was the real deal! Yui is not just an instructor, she is like a food guru or a food whisperer. We learned about Thai culture, food culture, Yui's very interesting life, and of course how to make very delicious food! Yui is so quirky, she kind of reminds me of Amelie and she is full of fun anecdotes. The pad thai and red curry we made were better than any other that we had in any restaurant and our tour of the market was a great opportunity to see a non-touristy market for once. This was by far our most favorite activity we did in Thailand and we would absolutely do another class with her! Skip the massage, elephant farm, and ziplining, this is the authentic Thai experience that you are looking for!

Best Thai cooking class!
Jan 2020 • Couples
My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to spend the morning with Yui and we learned so much about Thai food, the way ingredients work together and how she found her love for food and eating! She was so friendly and accommodating (I’m vegetarian and my partner and I like different spice levels!). The food was delicious and easy to make with her expert guidance- you can totally see why Gordon Ramsay was so interested in her recipes!
Can not recommend this enough as it was such a great experience, the food was amazing and five courses had us spoiled for variety plus a visit to the local market was so interesting! Felt like a once in a lifetime experience and with practically a Michelin starred chef!

A great lesson in authentic Thai food in a charming, intimate, family setting.
Nov 2019
We had the great fortune of spending a day with Yui on our recent visit to Chiang Mai. Kwan picked us up at our guest house right on time at 9:30 am. We traveled to their family home and got prepped while waiting a few moments for Yui to return from school drop off.

We began the class as soon as she arrived, as most of the prep work had been done ahead of time. Each of us had a propane burner and wok. Yui explained her philosophy of cooking in the traditional style, creating dishes that would honor the taste from "grandma's kitchen." She emphasized the quality of the ingredients, and the timing and balance of the different flavor profiles (sweet, salty, sour...) based on the history of the dish. She also readily accommodated our classmate's preference for no meat products (request at time of booking). One by one she showed us how to prep the ingredients for cooking and for garnish.

She carefully explained all of the ingredients and how to shop for them, including finding substitute ingredients abroad. This lesson was continued after the class was done when we visited a neighborhood farmers market and walked the aisles discussing what we learned.

We made mango sticky rice, pad thai, tom yun soup with clear stock, and our choice of green or red curry. My wife drank water, but I took Yui up on the offer of a cold beer from their fridge.

Yui is warm, engaging, smart and charming. Her English skills are very good and she was always very easy to understand. Her well-designed cookbook was provided to us as part of the class and we look forward to exploring more of her recipes now that we've returned home!

The best cooking class in Thailand
Oct 2019 • Friends
A friend and I took this cooking class and it was one of the best experiences we’ve had in Thailand.

Yui is incredibly knowledgeable, warm and friendly. We crafted three dishes, Pad See Ew, Som-Tom Papaya Salad, and Kao-Soy, true authentic thai food, all incredibly delicious.

The environment, Yui’s home, Is clean, bright, cozy, and filled with a jungle of beautiful plants.

After cooking and a whole lot of eating, Yui took us to her favorite market and showed us how to shop for the right ingredients. This was a true, Thai market with many delicacies.

If you want a true home cooking experience in Thailand, A Lot of Thia is definitely the way to go. A true, wholesome and tasty experience.

Best cooking class ever!
Aug 2019 • Couples
My husband and I absolutely loved this class. Yui was so welcoming and such an incredible chef. We learned to make a soup, curry, pad Thai and mango sticky rice. The food was out of this world and the best meal we had in Chiang Mai. If you’re looking for a cooking class— look no further!!

Great Cookery Lesson
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited as a family with 2 teenage daughters, who both love Thai food and are keen to learn how to cook it. I've tried at home but never really been too sure of what I'm doing, so this was the perfect opportunity to try and improve. Yui was a very engaging teacher who is self taught and clearly very passionate about food and teaching others. With her guidance we all managed to produce Pad Thai, red or green chicken curry and hot and sour prawn soup, which we ate as we went along, and finished off with the most divine mango and sticky rice that Yui prepared for us. We all came home with a recipe book as well so that we can recreate the dishes at home - Yui explained during the class about how and what to use in the UK when we can't get hold of some of the more exotic Thai ingredients.

Excellent group cooking class!
May 2019 • Friends
A friend saw my partner and I were visiting Chiang Mai and recommended we take Yui’s class. There may be cheaper options, but this was 100% worth it! We got picked up at the hotel and had an excellent cooking experience. Yoi worked hard to show us how to modify recipes to be able to do it in our own countries. When we left I felt much more prepared to cook some amazing Thai dishes when we get home. Highly recommended!
