Super fun!

This was one of our highlights. My husband and i both cooked a meal along with 6 others. Super tasty and fun.
It was a HOT evening and the food was hot but we did have some control over that. Enjoyed the garden and market tour. Love that the school is owned and run by women only!! I think this is the one we went to?

Mama Noi’s cooking class is a day in Chiang Mai that I will never forget! I was picked up on time. The market tour was not a tour, rather a quick stop with an explanation of some ingredients you see during the day. It was nice to be able to pick your personal menu for the day. Each dish I chose was delicious, it’s a lot of food and they do pack up for you what you wish to take back to your hotel. The teacher was great, 2 dishes by a student teacher and then some English interns to chat with during the day too. I would definitely recommend the full day - which is an extra 2 ish hours and those are more personable, hands on hours - there were only 3 of us doing the full day and 10 doing the half day in my group. Best part - you get to take home a sweet little cook book as well. What a wonderful and useful souvenir to share with family and friends!

I honestly didn't know what to expect, I booked it just for the sake of consuming time. It turned out to be one of my more memorable experiences I've had in Thailand.

It was informative, fun and very engaging.

Pick up from my hotel lobby was on time then we started off learning about ingredients in a local market which was reinforced by finding the same ingredients growing in their wonderful garden. After picking your choice of a range of dishes, we then learnt how to prepare the ingredients in stages so when it comes time for cooking it was fast and efficient. What I really enjoyed about the cooking process was finding the perfect balance of flavours to suit your palette which in the past was a factor I was ignorant about. At the end you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

The energy and atmosphere throughout the course was very joyful and enjoyable. Everyone always had a smile on their face and they never hesitate to answer any questions you may have.

I'm glad that I decided to do this course because I came out with so much more than I ever imagined.

I hope your experience was as enjoyable as mine.

This is one of the best memories I will have of Thailand. Great environment, great people and great cooking. We only did the half day option, but would happily go back and do the full day. A must if you are visiting Chiang Mai.

We first went to the market and got an explanation of the herbs and vegetables and the difference they bring to the table. Afterwards we went to the cooking school and made our own dishes.

There are a lot of options in what you could cook that I was seriously considering to retry this cooking class with different dishes.

After each meal you could try out the meal and or take it with you. There is times between preparing the dishes where you can talk with your fellow students. The class was given in English and everything was very understandable.

FANTASTIC!!! great tour - great price - super sweet people!
Jun. 2018 • Friends
We went at the end of may in 2018.
We loved going to the market and learning about the food to buy and how to prepare the meals. Having time to shop the market was an added bonus.
Cooking was fun and sooooo delicious. The grounds were beautiful and they did everything to make you feel comfortable. I highly recommend!
Ive used the cook book back in Toronto a few times. super easy to follow along and bring a little bit of Thailand back to your home :)

Wow. What a lovely openly honest review you have written. Whilst we may not be perfect, we do truly love and want the best for the elephants in our care, and hope to keep on saving more lives without a voice in the future with the support we receive from individuals like yourself. Thank you!

Amazing Half Day Cooking Class!
From the minute we stepped onto Mama NOI’S Organic Farm to the moment we left, we kept being happily surprised with how kind, fun and overall enjoyable the experience was! The food that we cooked was delicious, there were vegetarian options if needed and you could choose one of 3 stirfrys, 3 soups and 4 curries to make! So everyone cooked a full 3 course meal and you could choose what you wanted to eat based on your preference which was awesome! We also made Thai iced tea and were given a delicious Thai pudding for dessert! With addition to a cookbook with all the recipes that we could’ve potentially made that evening, so you can try the others at home! The staff were knowledgeable, so helpful and the grounds were incredibly beautiful and well maintained! The only thing that could’ve been improved was our driver, he didn’t say much and didn’t seem that friendly but maybe it was just that he didn’t speak much English. This didn’t dampen our evening though! We made so much food that we ate the soup and stirfry there and took the curry to go and had it for leftovers the next day! Would recommend to anyone! Come hungry!!

Thank you. The elephants are always so happy to see our guests and just love to be feed their favorite snacks and pampered in the mud spa, hosed down in the pool and scrub up in the shower, and I know that they look forward to seeing you again one day soon. Love EJS.
