Full description
Learn how to make authentic Thai dishes with this fun, small-group cooking class in Chiang Mai as you prepare classic dishes using ingredients from a local market. Choose between a half-day class during the morning or the evening and cook five dishes, or go for the full-day class to cook an extra two courses!

Visit a local market and buy the necessary ingredients, and tour an organic farm filled with fresh fruits and vegetables. Once you're done, head to the classroom and prepare your individual cooking stations for the lesson.

    Very well organized and delightful experience. Tay was very helpful and patient with us novice chef wannabes. I made a coconut soup, pad Thai and green curry. All were delicious but you have to pace yourself as there is a lot of food. The visit to the market and farm surrounding the classroom really enhanced the experience.

    This is something you can do on your own or with someone. The best tour in chiang Mai. It was so much fun learning to cook 4 separate dishes. We even had our own station. The instructed was very informative and gave step by step instructions. You also get to choose the dishes you want to cook for yourself. If you are vegetarian it will also work for you. They pick you up and drop you off from your hotel. Do it. So much fun.

    Excellent, informative well organised and enjoyable Thai cooking experience. Everything was great from the pickup at the arranged time to the market and the farm which was pretty. The instructor, Tay was great and taught us lots about Thai food and the ingredients used in cooking. We made lots of tasty food, we couldn't eat it all so got to take some home too.
