Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet a driver at your Chiang Mai hotel, then travel to a local market to explore the stalls. You’ll learn to choose the best of each ingredient, with the chance to sample some fresh produce along the way—enjoy some free time to wander or shop before continuing to the cooking school.

Upon arrival, visit the organic kitchen garden where ingredients for the student kitchen are grown. Enjoy access to a cooking station solely for your use, so you’ll be sure to learn every step in the process.

The grand finale is the meal you’ve cooked: sit down to a full meal with your fellow students. At the end of the cooking class, you’ll be presented with a book of recipes, so you can reproduce what you’ve learned in your home kitchen. This cooking class concludes with a return transfer to your hotel in Chiang Mai.

Awesome experience

From the beginning of our morning in the market to eating our delicious meal, this was an incredible experience. Our teacher/guide Peanut walked us through each step of making a Thai, soup, stir fry and curry. Making our own curry paste from scratch was a high point for me. Grinding and pounding the ingredients into a delicious paste was a new experience. There were children through seniors in our group and we all enjoyed the day. It was time very well spent!

This was great fun! Although our big group always seemed to be rushed along and some of my food was not so tasty :-, it was a good class. The instructor was humorous. They give a lovely cookbook to you for free in the end.

Thi Merchant is bogus. They did not pickup any call, we probably called a million times. I also contacted them thru google contact and they would not pickup. My hotel also called to confirm our pickup and no answer. We ultimately had to pay much higher price for a last minute cooking class with another tour company.

An excellent morning learning the basics of Thai cooking. As it turned out it seems I dont like lemongrass which caused a bit of a problem as you get to eat what you cook at the end, and lemongrass goes in EVERYTHING, I couldnt eat anything! But thats not the fault of the activity which was first class, super friendly staff.

This was a very entertaining and informative class. There were a lot of options of dishes to cook, including some that are not typically included in most classes that I have done elsewhere, and everyone could cook what they wanted rather than the whole class cook the same thing.

I absolutely loved it. I was travelling by myself so wasn't sure if it would be fun on my own, but it was great. The instructor was hilarious and we had lots of options for what we wanted to cook. The food was delicious and you get a cookbook of everything to take home. This was one of the best things I did when I was in Chiang Mai. Would do it again for sure.

Well worth it. The class was well-organized but still felt very authentic. The Thais are such amazing people and the instructors for this outing were no exceptions. Our teacher was amazing! The food was phenomenal, i really felt like I learned a lot about the Thai palette and I recommend doing this early in your trip, so you know what to order for the rest of your time there. Amazing, will do it again! Thanks!!!!
