Full description
Discover the secrets of authentic Thai cuisine with a private 4-hour cooking class in Chiang Mai. Shop for ingredients at Siri Wattana Market then head to the open-air kitchen to create traditional Thai dishes with the help of a professional chef.   At the cooking class, you’ll be assigned an individual cooking station and, after watching a demonstration, set to work creating an array of traditional Thai dishes. Depending on the day's menu, you'll perhaps prepare a tasty tom yum goong (hot and sour prawn soup), a spicy gaeng khiew waan gai (green curry with chicken), or a classic phad thai with fried rice noodles.   You'll also be given the recipes to take away with you and tips for ingredient substitutions to help you recreate your favorite dishes back home.

After "Air" (owner, cook) picked us up at the hotel, we were allowed to visit a nice market together where he also bought various ingredients directly. He was happy to answer all of our questions about the various foods in great detail. Air has extensive knowledge, a lot of experience and brings this across with his healthy sense of humour. Afterwards we were allowed to prepare the food at his home, whereby his instructions were always very precise and the food was delicious. Air has a separate outdoor kitchen especially for this event, which is used exclusively for this purpose. The premises were modern, well maintained and very, very clean. Even beginners got their money's worth thanks to Air's support. We can warmly recommend this event and would visit Air again at any time.

Very nice experience with Air who is a chef who teaches us Thai cuisine directly at home in a kitchen equipped for lessons. Beforehand, a visit to the market to discover the typical ingredients of Thai cuisine and then learning 3 dishes that will be tasted on site…. Functional, efficient, and above all very greedy, we had the right to make a green curry, a mushroom soup and a pad Thai…. To recommend without hesitation! Thanks Air
