Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

Kong does an amazing cooking class. He has it set up in his home, but it is top notch, professionally designed with individual cooking stations for each student. This is a hands on cooking class, where you do the chopping and dicing, prep, cooking and plating. Do the full day class, you will be sorry if you do not.

I researched for a cooking school since i was gonna be in Chiang Mai for 5 days and i needed more activities that were good for people travelling alone. I love cooking but i never really tried to cook Thai food, i think i'm not worthy to cook Thai food and that the flavors come from really complicated ingredients. I... More

One of the highlights of our trip. Kong was an amazing teacher. The food was DELICIOUS. I can't wait to try to make it again at home. This trip is worth every penny and then some.

My husband and I did the half day course because the full day was unavailable, but that felt perfect for us and we still learnt a lot! Kong was a funny, entertaining instructor and kept us very engaged. Everything was superbly organized and we moved seamlessly from one activity to the next. Visiting the Thai market was great and he... More

After reviewing lots of Thai Cooking classes available in Chiang Mai my partner and I were lost with who to choose for this experience. Then a friend recommended this place and we couldn't have been happier. The tutor 'A' was so lovely and she greeted us with a great smile and explained what the half day course would include. We...

Thank you Kong for opening our eyes -- and our tastebuds! -- to your coconut curry, among the other recipes. So delicious. Loved visiting the market and learning about the vegetables. Thank you!

Loved our half day with Thai Orchid, it left me wishing I had booked the full day. It started with them picking us up with some of the other people in class. Once we arrived, we met the others and were offered water, tea and coffee while picking out individual food choices. A couple key points - each person got... More

This was an incredible experience. A van came to pick us up (and later return us) at our guesthouse. The day was broken up by different lessons, prep work, demonstrations, and a field trip to the local market. "A" was an amazing and personable instructor. She made the class fun and humorous. I loved that we got to try her... More

We booked this cooking school of the many because of the high ratings and were not disappointed. We received timely confirmations and even a reminder email the day before. We were picked up in an air conditioned van right on time and taken to the school, which is also the teachers home. The class was very informative and interactive. She... More
