  • 10/10! Picked up from our hotel, driven to the market at the Front Gate to explore ingredients. The kitchen had individual cooking stations so everyone was able to cook individual dishes they were interested in. We had 11 different dishes. We departed with a goodie bag of dried slices, apron and cookbooks. Awesome experience.
  • fantastic cooking course, come with an empty stomach because there will plenty of food :) Very well organized, great athmosphere, loads of silly jokes (I love that): this is cooking fun. Also learned a little bit more about Thai and Akha culture and history, top notch, just goodness
  • A must-do while in Chiang Mai! Start with a trip to the market with your instructor to see/pick up where your ingredients are from and then learn to cook 11 dishes! The food was absolutely incredible and you get a cookbook to take home at the end to try & recreate at home. Our instructor was really wonderful and shared his knowledge not only of cooking delicious Thai & Akha food, but of his Akha tribe as well.
  • So much fun! They come and pick you up from your hotel. Deau is so talented and friendly. He makes sure all is well with you and your ingredients. A must when visiting Chiang Mai.
  • One of the most do activities when you visit Thailand is a cooking class. This one was great experience. The teacher did a lot himself and also introduced us and thought us to the Thai cuisine. Absolutely essential is the air co because it can get really hot. You get to try 9 different dishes from which 3 you make yourself. Recommended.
