Incredible experience, Benny is so fun & informative about Thai cuisine! Definitely a highlight for my trip to Chiang Mai. Anyone who likes to cook (or wants to be a better cook) will like this course! Casual, light hearted atmosphere!

What can I say about Benny? She is a delight! She is a delight and full of energy! “Cook with a smile” is her phrase she uses when she begins her hands on training of Thai food cooking essentials. We were picked up and handed a color photo sheet with photos and list of food we would like to learn to cook as we headed to her house. She explains at her chef station how to do preparations for the foods you choose at the beginning of the tour. Once instructed she along with her “kitchen fairies” help you prepare and cook the items you most want to learn to cook. Do not eat anything big for breakfast as you EAT all day long. Whatever you cook you will eat, and with two of us, we shared our trials. FUN FUN FUN! We had a great group of people on this tour – France, England, two from Arizona and one from Oregon. In the end we learned to cook five dishes. Spices are abundant and potent at times – those little chilies are HOT! Highly recommended for a day of fun, laughs, meeting people and just relaxing.

This was the highlight of my month in Thailand. Sounds crazy because I don't even cook. Learned so much and had a blast! Benny is loads of fun and she is very knowledgeable. Her English is great. This class/tour is a really great value. She picked us up at 8:30 and dropped us off at 5:00...full day.

Had a great time with Benny! We started off with a market tour, including trying a few things at the market flavoured sticky rice, coconut pancakes and spicy Chiang Mai sausage. One of the others in the group was curious about ant eggs yep! We were 'lucky' as they're highly seasonal so he bought some at the market. Benny was happy to cook the eggs he'd bought for us to try, so I suspect that you wanted to buy something in the market that caught your eye, if it was fairly straightforward to cook, Benny would show you how. I really liked that we got to choose from three dishes in each type. This meant that between us we tried most of the options available , and we got to see a wider variety of ingredients and how things are made than if we'd all been making the same thing. For each dish, you get a box of things to cook with, tailored to the dish and if applicable meat/veggie option you've chosen. The very basic prep is done for you ie you get the right amount of ginger/tumeric/galangal, the chicken/tofu is already cut into bite sized pieces, the shallot is already peeled, noodles and chillis presoaked. I quite liked this as, quite frankly I would rather spend time on things I don't know how to do ie cook Thai food than things I can do cut chicken, but one of the others would have preferred to have done a bit more from scratch as they thought it felt a bit too much like just assembly. Again, personally I felt that the amount of prep was fine, but I'm mentioning this in case it might be something that would annoy you.
