Owner description: We are the First and Best cookery school in Chiang Mai. Owned and operated by "Master Chef" Sompon Nabnian... you will unlock the secrets of traditional Thai-style cooking. Have you ever wondered why Thai food tastes so different from restaurant to restaurant? The ingredients are the same, so it should taste the same, you would think...not at all! The best Thai food comes from using the freshest ingredients, along with the skilful art of preparation and combining the right ingredients at the right time to create an exceptional dish.Our school offers five fine mouth-watering courses for you to choose from (vegetarian options are available for all dishes in all courses):There is simply no better place to learn about the joys of Thai cooking!
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities

I signed up for a four day/six hour cooking class and i was BLOWN AWAY! I have taken MANY cooking classes around the world, but this school is by far the BEST. They know their stuff. They begin with a market tour, take you back to the school give you an overview of each ingredient used, provide a demonstration of each dish you will make for the day, you taste each dish before you make your dish at your own personal cooking station. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The price/quantity was Excellent. I made at least five dishes in six hours. They also accommodate tastes, preferences, skill level and vegetarians. They were very organized, helpful and friendly!

You are being given of basic and mor of the Thai kitchen. Every participant has it own cooking station, every dish is being demonstrated by the chef in an air conditioned room and then all participant making the dish. We made 6 dishes all were great. Started the day with preparing decoration out of vegetables. Great sense of humor by all chefs, great place, lots of food..

We learn lots and have already tried 2 of the dishes at home. As well as being educational the day was great fun - thanks to our fellow chefs and the chef who led the course.

We did the Thursday course, which starts with a shopping trip in the market and continues at the Chef's home outside of the city.

Spent a marvellous afternoon cooking delicious thai food with Sompon Nabnian at his school. Such great fun and although we hadn't worked so hard and so long in a kitchen before - "slice it finer, that's no good, start again, ha ha" - it was immensely enjoyable, and the end product of course was delicious. for those not used to thai ingredients it is an education initself to run through all the herbs and spices in common use in Thai cooking. Freshness and flavour are the key to it all, and the quality of the ingredients always comes through. We have come away with our aprons and recipes all gung ho to have a go at home!
