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

"Move your body" was Nancy's favorite saying while we were there. We spent all day at the cooking school and enjoyed every single minute of it!

At the beginning, you will be driven to the local market where one of the staff explains all the spices, vegetables, and fruit to you. Afterwards, you arrive at the cooking school and choose the dishes that you would like to cook. You will be split into different teams, depending on whether you spend all day or just half the day. We chose to cook all day. It entailed 6 or 7 different dishes, after the 5th you are already full.

You will be taught how to prepare the ingredients, what to look out for and eventually you cook and eat all of your meals.

It was not only informative but seriously a lot of fun. If you have a day to spare and like food, this is a MUST in Chiang Mai.

Fab cooking class with plenty of style and fun, easy to follow recipes along with interesting trip to local market place to see the ingredients; it is all prepared in advance for your arrival the market trip is just on the side but we bought things to bring home anyway! food fantastic, nice small class size (8 people max) with your own table and stove, staff help you with washing up in between meals, set in a nice tranquil location not too far out of town (20 mins from town centre), very eco friendly with own local herb garden. start off making curry paste (fun and tasty), about 3-4 courses including yummy dessert all thai style. you end up with a great meal for the price so good value and you are extremely proud of yourself for making such nice food. fresh ingredients definitely the go and you come away with a recipe book from the day including all dishes available to try your hand at home. 5 stars, would give more but only 5 available

I wanted a serious education in cooking Thai food, not necessarily a casual social afternoon. After a lot of research, I decided to go with this facility and am *so* glad I did! The atmosphere was easy-going and social, but also intensive, learning six different recipes every day. The facility was top-notch and the instructor was fun to work with and easy to understand. All the food we made was delicious, and it's been easy enough to reproduce at home that I feel my days were well worth it. Any of the days would make a great one-day outing, and the multi-day packages are well worth the price and the time investment.
