Nan meet us at the hotel, we drove to the market, drunk tea with her and made a choice of our meal. Than we bought in the market what we need for cooking.Cooking with Nan was very interesting, we had fun and the meal was excellent. Also could we have a look in her wonderfull garden and learned something about the herbs that are growing there.

Nan was a fabulous instructor. She defintely got us involved and we learned a lot! The location is a very nice setting. Nan picked us very timely from our hotel, we picked up another couple and then went to the market. She explained a lot to us about everything we were seeing.

Nan was the perfect instructor. She was very professional and personable at the same time. It was fun to go to the market to shop like a local. We got to try lots of interesting things that normally we wouldn’t have any clu what it even was! The kitchen space in their home is amazing- the house and gardens are beautiful. It was so nice to be able to learn the proper way to prepare the dishes- which order to put the ingredients in, how to slice, dice and cook each one...so much food- I wasn’t even hungry for dinner! The class was an excellent value!

We had a wonderful day with Nan and Suwannee. Nan picked us up and led us on a very interesting tour of the morning market. We went from stall to stall meeting the locals and selecting the finest ingredients. Lots of sampling and tasting too! Once we arrived at their beautiful country home we enjoyed delicious appetizers. Suwannee had the kitchen ready with a separate cooking station for each class member. We had so much fun learning to prepare and cook each menu item. The other class members were delightful to spend the day with. And the food was some of the best Thai food I've ever eaten. Anyone would enjoy this class!

Welcoming teachers providing the authentic flare that everyone is looking for when attending something like this. I would recommend this to any and everyone as it provided every aspect of cooking, from selecting the food at the market of which was an experience in and of itself to preparing and communicating with the teachers in their own home. If you have the good fortune to attend this class, it will be a beautiful memory for you to keep.

This Cooking class was recommended to us by the Concierge at the Le Meridian. From the pick up at the hotel, Nan, our guide and cook for the day, was very personable and her genuine interest in us as a couple was endearing. The market visit was outstanding. We met many locals, all personally known by Nan. We learned a great deal about the food, the wares the culture and the friendliness of the locals added greatly to the activity.
Nan made the cooking class great fun and the overall experience was very enjoyable. Nan was informative and her bubbly, interactive style was a pleasure as we learned about the ingredients, the importance of selecting fresh produce, the methods and the order in which they are used etc. This led to an outstanding lunch. Nan’s photos were great and captured the fun we had. Furthermore, we have been able to use the skills (and the recipes) to create and enjoy authentic Thai food now that we have returned home.
Overall Suwanneekwan (Nan’s aunt and the owner) was an outstanding host who ensures that the Cooking Class has an excellent touch of class.
We highly recommend this activity to any visitor interested in learning about Thai cooking and culture.

I learned invaluable cooking skills - for both Thai food and cooking in general - that I will always remember. I also had a blast doing it. I only wish I had time in Chiang Rai to take more classes! Will definitely do it again when I am back in town.

I would highly, highly recommend anyone visiting Chiang Rai to sign up for a cooking class with Suwannee. She makes it fun, entertaining and an informative day. We started the morning visiting a local market selecting our ingredients for our Thai cooking experience. Suwannee's attention to detail and knowledge of the Thai cuisine makes her a first class act.

We contacted Suwannee few weeks back and got immediate reply to confirm details! Nan picked us up from our hotel and brought us to the thai local market - where we got to see lots of fresh food and even taste them! Nan was very friendly and kind and walked us through every procedure to make delicious food. (never thought i was able to make tom yum!) Definitely recommend this if u visiting chiang rai! Thank you so much Nan!
