About
In this culinary adventure you will leave Chiang Mai and spend the morning learning about local northern Thai life with your host, Nid. Nid grew up in Lamphun, a small region an hour outside of Chiang Mai. An adventurous soul, she left to travel and cook in restaurants worldwide. Of all the cooks she has met, she says the best is her mother. She is passionate about bringing travelers to her home to learn about authentic rural life, learning to cook the classic northern Thai dishes she grew up eating. This is truly an 'off the eaten path' experience!

What to expect
  • Your day begins at 9:00am with a pick you up at your hotel in Chiang Mai. You will then drive less than an hour to Nid's home village in Lamphun. On the way, stop at a local market to learn about the regional produce and pick up ingredients before continuing to Nid's family home to begin cooking. In a hands-on cooking lesson you will learn to make several dishes alongside Nid and her mother. Chop, mince and pound a beautiful Northern Thai meal. Your meal might include steamed fish in banana leaf, Nid’s special fried chicken, laap pla duk (grilled catfish salad), and banana flower curry. Experience a delicious side of Thai cuisine you’ve never seen - or tasted - before. After lunch Nid will drive you back to your hotel in the afternoon. Note this is a private experience with a local at her family home. It is an off the beaten path experience where you can get outside of central Chiang Mai, driving through the countryside to a real family home and farm. Cooking is done in their open-air kitchen and you will sit on the ground on mats, cooking food on woks on traditional charcoal grills.
