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! Get picked up at your hotel within Chiang Mai, then meet up with the rest of your group and choose what you want to cook from the menu. 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. Follow the instructions of your professional English-speaking guide as you cook a variety of authentic Thai dishes such as mango sticky rice, pad thai, and curry, and make curry paste with your own two hands! Enjoy the fruits of your labor by sharing a meal with your group. Exchange stories as you sample each others' cooking before you head back to your accommodation.

    A great experience! The informative visit to the market, the guided walk through the garden where we got to taste and smell different herbs, and the actual cooking process were all super fun. I was pretty impressed with the end product-- delicious and so satisfying to know that I'd made it myself. I highly recommend.

    Such an amazing experience!! One of our favorite things we did here in Chiang Mai - the facility is gorgeous and the teacher is very patient. You feel like a pro cooking multiple Thai dishes and getting to enjoy them after! We are so excited to try out our new cooking skills & recipes at home.

    Amazing experience! we did a full day cooking course. In the morning we went to the fresh market where we were introduced to the spices/sauces & veggies that we later on used for cooking. The place is amazing, full with trees, nature & of course with the herbs garden which was absolutely great. We did 6 different dishes and without any doubt all of them were delicious. I highly recommend to anyone who visits Chiang Mai & wants to spend the day with great people, to learn a bit about the traditional Thai dishes & to eat amazing thai food. Guarantee you will not stay hungry! Thank you for this great experience!
