We chose Cooking with Ann because we wanted to learn more about Northern Thai food and Ann's extensive menu gave us the opportunity. We have been to several cooking classes when visiting Thailand and Ann's is one of the best.
Ann picked us up from our accommodation, talked to us about what we wanted to cook as we drove to a local market. Ann purchased the fresh food we needed to cook the recipes we chose, and told us about the unfamiliar food at the market.
Back at Ann's house we got to work cooking - preparing the ingredients needed for the food we chose.
The class was a joy and a delight. We learnt about the northern Thai people and the food they ate.
The food we prepared was delicious.
So pleased we came to this cooking class.
Highly recommend Cooking with Ann

Ann is a great teacher and wonderful person. She picked me up from the hotel and we went to the local market to buy ingredients for our dishes. It was a great experience.
We spent few times cooking together and chating about life. I had a feeling i know Ann for ages. She speaks very good english, so it was easy to understand everything. I can highly recommend Ann school. Loved every minute.

Ann picked us up at our hotel and brought us to the market to pick out the best, freshest ingredients before we went to her kitchen. She gave us all kinds of advice on what to look for when looking at both veggies and protein. We decided which dishes we wanted to learn how to make and she took us through the entire process. Everything turned out delicious (Arroyo)!!

Ann was lots of fun and very down-to-earth. Her English is very good as well. Highly recommend!

Cooking with Ann in her kitchen was a lovely experience. I've done a number of cooking lessons in the past and most classes comes with a preset menu of dishes. What stands out with Ann's classes is having the flexibility of picking the dishes you would like to learn/cook. Of course it's a no brainer that I would want learn Northern Thai dishes! 😁

Ann is friendly, patient and knowledgeable throughout the class. What's included in the session is that you get to learn to cook 4 Thai dishes of your choice, a trip to the local market to select the ingredients for the dishes you'll be making and a round-trip transportation from your hotel to Ann's place. The recipes of the dishes you learned will be sent via email after your session.

Great experience. From going to the market to pick up the ingredients to preparing them and cooking them. great time for sure and Ann is pretty amazing at what she does. I must say for me being the first time ever cooking Thai food the food came out super delicious, that by the end of the class I ended up rolling out of her kitchen. Some of the things that set her apart from the other classes is that she lets you pick your own menu. That’s right people you make it your own experience. Not like the others classes that are already a preset menu. So I Definitely recommend this class!!!

Cons: none

My wife and I have taken several cooking classes by now and Ann's was superb - I highly recommend taking this class if you are in Chiang Rai.

We had a great time, learned a lot and had a feast. Ann let us choose the dishes that we wanted to learn and then then went to a really awesome market with her to buy the ingredients. We selected Pad Thai, Sweet and Sour Pork, Tom Ka Gai, and she suggested a pumpkin cake. Ann taught us the techniques and recipes but we did all the prep work and all the cooking ourselves so we really know how to make these now. The recipes turned out to be easily reproduced and the food was fabulous. Ann herself is really friendly, her English is great, she is a great teacher, and her kitchen and garden are really fun places to cook.

Best of all, these dishes turned out so well that they will definitely become part of our normal cooking routine at home now.

We had such fun learning how to cook Thai food with Ann. Ann knows that we were vegetarian so not an issue at all. The market was great - not at all touristy and we saw many unfamiliar foods. We were also amazed at how cheap everything was. Back at Ann’s house we had fun learning how to cook in a relaxed and informative environment and left full up and happy! Highly recommended as an authentic cookery experience!

My friend and I had the most amazing experience cooking with Ann! I was super pleased to find out we would be able to cook not one, not two, but FOUR dishes.

Ann picked us up from our hostel and brought us to the local grocery store, where she let us taste and smell a bunch of fragrant local ingredients. She also shared a lot of information about the ingredients, which was super interesting and informative. Ann even bought us extra fruit as snacks for later, which was extremely kind of her. My friend is a vegetarian and I am not - Ann accommodated for all dietary restrictions.

We then arrived at Ann’s kitchen where we prepared and cooked our food - Tom Yum, Pad Thai, Green Curry, and Mango Sticky Rice. I liked how we were involved in every step, as opposed to having the ingredients previously prepared for us; it gave us the full hands-on experience. Making the meal was a lot of fun as Ann (who speaks fluent English, by the way!) and we chatted the whole time. Time really flew by and when it was time to go home, we were all really sad.

I’ve heard cooking classes are very competitive and can revolve around basic dishes in Chiang Mai - for this reason, if you are looking for a true immersing experience, opt for Ann’s cooking class! I would highly recommend her classes to you and all my friends/family; you will not regret it.

It goes without saying that the food was PHENOMENAL. I don’t think I can buy Thai food ever again without missing what I made here!! She even packs the leftovers for you - my friend and I had enough for two more meals the following day.

I hope to be able to return to this class one day as I will hold the memory close to me. Ann is the sweetest lady. Thank you so much for everything, Ann! :)

This cooking class is really amazing! Ann is wonderful and made sure that we had a great time. We got to choose the menu and it was only me and my friend in the class :) Thanks, Ann, for making our last evening in Thailand one of the most memorable!
If you want to do a cooking class - cook with Ann!
