    Definitely one of our highlights here in Chiang Mai. We were picked up at our hotel to go to a local market and then to the farm where the cooking class took place. We had chosen half a day (morning), where we were given the opportunity to prepare 3 dishes. We had a very friendly lecturer who guided us well and gave us tips. You get a tour through the farm, where you get to know the different herbs they use in the kitchen. Tip! Don't eat too much beforehand. You eat all morning! :-)

    This was well worth it!!! Got to visit the market to see the different ingredients we would use in the cooking class. At the school, we got to see what the actual plants looked like in the vegetable garden. We made three different dishes and got to taste our cooking after each set: soup, pad Thai and curry dish. We were surprised to see how easy it was to make the dishes and how savory they were too!!! We must credit our instructor Kiki who did an amazing job!!!

    The pickup was great, on-time and no need to worry about how to get there. The food was lovely and the staff were awesome. It was also great to try making the dishes from scratch so we could try ourselves at home using their recipe book. We had a really good time, would recommend it.
