We chose this cooking class in chiang mai as we were interested in vegetarian thai cooking and it did not disappoint!
Our teacher, who is the sister of May Kaidee who runs classes in Bangkok, took us out to her place on the outskirts of chiang mai near farms where we learned how to cook 13 different dishes in her neat outdoor kitchen.
The recipe booklet was very clear and informative and our teacher was very passionate and skilful about vegetarian cooking.
My favorite dishes were the green thai curry and tom yam soup, although the spring rolls and peanut sauce were also fun to make, as was the pad thai, and we were surprised that every dish took only 5 or 6 minutes to cook.
For dessert we made black and white sticky rice with mango and banana which was so tasty.
I am excited to go home and try these dishes.
We highly recommend this experience in Chiang Mai.

ok, maybe nothing as dramatic as that! :-)

But, it completely changed my perception of Thai food! I am quite the foodie and thai cuisine is one of my favorites. I always wanted to learn how to cook it but didn't know who to turn to.

Well, I am so glad I went to Chiang Mai because apparently some of the best thai cooking schools in the country (geared towards foreigners) are in this city. I would highly, highly recommend taking this class. The whole thing will take approximately 3 - 4 hours and also includes going to the market to pick the produce, cutting all the vegetables and then cooking the food.

One piece of advice if you decide to do it, make sure you are EXTREMELY HUNGRY when you go because you will make 8 - 10 different items and will probably want to finish it all.

At the end of it, I was just amazed that I had the ability to cook such incredibly thai food (albeit with our instructor guiding us every step of the way!). The only sad thing is when we did it, that was the last day the restaurant was open. They were closing down and were planning on opening in a different part of the city. I sure hope they did because this is a little treasure that you cannot miss!
