Learn the essential flavors and techniques of Thai cooking with a 6-hour, small-group class in Chiang Mai with an experienced local chef. Visit a local market to see the fresh ingredients that are the base of each dish, then make a four-course menu at a personal cooking station. Prepare a soup, salad, stir-fry and curry with tips and help from the instructor then enjoy the feast that you’ve created alongside a sweet Thai dessert. Leave with recipes for your favorite dishes, with tips on recreating them in your home kitchen.
What to Expect
After being picked up from your Chiang Mai hotel at either 8am or 3pm (depending on the tour time selected), head straight to the local market for a 30-minute tour. Accompanied by your guide, an experienced local chef, learn more about typical Thai vegetables, herbs, and spices as you browse the market stalls, and purchase the ingredients needed for your cooking class. 
Continue to the cooking school, where you'll select the dishes you wish to cook and be assigned an individual cooking station. Set to work chopping  the fruits and vegetables, cooking the meat, and blending the sauces under the guidance of your instructor. Depending on the day's menu, you'll have chance to create tasty soups such as Tom Yum Goong (spicy and sour Thai soup with shrimp) or Tom Kha Gai (coconut milk soup with chicken); traditional dishes such as Pad Thai Gai (stir-fried noodles with chicken), Kaow Soi (Yellow curry with chicken and crispy noodles) or Green Curry with chicken; and scrumptious desserts such as Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango. 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. 
Finally, tuck into your delicious homemade creations as you sit down to sample your 4-course lunch or dinner.
