Thai Secret Cooking School offers half day and full day classes focusing on local and traditional Thai cuisine. The school is located in PhaPai Village just 20 minutes from downtown Chiang Mai. We pick you up at your hotel in the morning and visit our favorite local market to select some of our key ingredients, then we deliver you to our school, welcoming you with an ice cold refreshment and local snack. Next we are off for a quick tour of the surrounding rice paddies and our organic garden, along the way you will learn some fun facts while harvesting some novel yummies. Now we can cook!
