Awesome Thai cooking experience! Would recommend the full day for sure! Learnt a lot about the Thai food from Mac and Mel. They were both lovely Thai locals with great English as well! Made many different Thai dishes, all of which we got to choose and then eat ourselves. You won't go hungry that's for sure! Perhaps have a light... More

This cooking class was fantastic. We signed up to do their seven course class at their farm. It gave us an opportunity to see a rural area and small village outside of Chiang Mai. The instructor was so friendly, fun, and helpful. We made salad, appetizers, stir fry, pad Thai, soup, curry, and dessert. We got to select from a... More

This place is just incredible. A quick train ride, followed by a short distance on a bicycle takes you to this quaint little farm where you learn how to cook a variety of quick, simple yet absolutely tasty Thai dishes. The hospitality is out of this world and our cooking team took their time to explain as much as they... More

We did the one day cooking school experience with Smart Cook. This started with a visit to a local market to learn about Thai ingredients. We then travelled by local train to the village where the cooking school was - we biked from the train station to the cooking school - these experiences were a great way to start our... More

Great place cooking on a farm! Did a full day including all veggie dishes which were easily substituted. We made 6 dishes and ate them all, great detailed recipe book given at the end! We also picked our own ingredients from the farm, had a train ride, cycled around town! Mint our teacher was brilliant!!!

Took a evening lessons. Kiki instructor was very funny, nice and good teacher. Visit old food market. Cook a nice soup, main Thai dish and curry. Finish with sweet rice. Cannot eat everything we cook. Unfortunately we miss beer for closing the evening because of elections day. Above all nice evening.

We took the half day class and it was truly amazing. Kiki our instructor was super nice and he explained a lot about the ingredients. The atmosphere is very warm and they treat you like family. The recipes were delicious and I can't wait to try them at home. I highly recomend it, it's a must do in Chiang Mai.... More
