What To Expect

Part of the rich culture of Thailand is ingrained in all its delicious traditional dishes. In this activity, join a fun and informative tour that will take you on a local market trip where you'll source all your ingredients for your scheduled cooking class! Choose either a morning or evening course and embark on a journey that will introduce you to the Akha people - a community that immigrated to Thailand in the 1900's - as well as their traditions and a combination of both Thai and Akha cuisine. In the cooking course, you'll create 10 delicious dishes that you will get to eat after the session. During your meal, stuff yourself silly with the soup, spring rolls, stir fry dishes, and more, straight from your kitchen station. If you're the type to eat the food rather than cook it yourself, you can join a simple half day market tour, where you'll get to try an array of Thai dishes and traditional street food as you go.

  • Liane 11 Oct 2018
    Loved the evening cooking class. Great way to make a variety of dishes, meet other travelers and eat a ton of food. The guide was very organized, humorous, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this class if you have the opportunity.

  • Ha 25 Sep 2018
    This cooking class was the best choice I've made in Chiangmai trip. The instructors are friendly and caring, the food is fresh and well-prepared, everything seemed perfect. We had litterally 11 dishes, and most of them are measured just right for one person try. If you are searching for something closely link to Thai culture, then taking this course is a must!
  • HOI SZE 25 Sep 2018
    Cooking of multiple thai dishes, including appetizers, curry and soup. Liked the demonstration of Akha dishes that is very special and unique here in this cooking school.
  • Wing Tung 19 Aug 2018
    The most comprehensive cooking course in Chiang Mai you can search for. Instructor is attentive, professional and is good at managing the time. Information from the class is general, participants are mostly English speakers, recommend for elementary learners who are looking for a taste of thai cusine.
