About
A family-run home cooking class established in 2001. We began with a small class size. Even though our business has seen tremendous growth, we have decided that this size maintains the personalization and individual attention that each student deserves. Yui (Siripen Sriyabhaya), Thailand's international TV chef still teaches every dish in every class to guarantee the highest quality of instruction. Her expertise attracts a variety of students such as, TV chefs, executive chefs, culinary school teachers, international Thai cooking instructors, food columnists, cookbook authors, tourists, and food lovers.Yui's unique blend of art and science truly make cooking exciting, fun, and easy to follow. When students cook these delicious dishes in class, they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to be able to recreate these dishes at home.
Duration: More than 3 hours

    A fantastic experience, with an amazing chef!
    We couldn’t have asked for more, from this experience. Yui is not only a brilliant chef, but she’s also a world class host. Her teachings and demonstrations were infused with bits of history, culture, humour, and her own life experiences. The whole day felt very personal, and intimate. This is clearly much more than a business for Yui - it’s a passion, and it shows.

    Best cooking class in Chiang Mai (maybe the world)
    Yui is amazing - take this class! Help her implement her plan of Thai food world domination. After a pick up from our hotel in her VW camper we started with a tour around a local food market where Yui taught us about local ingredients and their uses. We then went to the kitchen where we learnt to cook 4 dishes under her patient and expert guidance. After each dish we ate them, my Pad Thai was amazing - thanks to Yui. We were in a group of only 4, I think the maximum is 6, which means you get lots of 1:1 attention and support. The whole day was very well organised, with all the ingredients and equipment prepared for you in advance or whilst you eat. No need to do your own washing up! Yui was inspirational! She is knowledgeable, kind, enthusiastic and interesting. If you are thinking about taking a Thai cooking class in Chiang Mai take this one, it's well worth it and you won't be disappointed. Thank Yui!

    Great Thai cooking lesson provided by Yui, and actually backed by science!
    Yui provided us with a fantastic cooking session, which despite my aversion to cooking, made me determined to become a good cook. She patiently answered all our questions, provided explanations on the options and choices she made. She made the class interesting and despite not cooking for over 20 years, my wife thought my Pad Thai was quite good 😂 She was also a veritable source of information on ingredients, techniques, Chiang Mai and Thai culture.

    First class tuition and a delightful host chef
    Yui is as delightful as the food she taught us to cook. She made us very welcome in her home and we learned so much about cooking four delicious Thai dishes. Yui is a superb chef and teacher and I wholeheartedly recommend A Lot of Thai to anyone who wants to learn to cook Thai food in an authentic Thai residence.

    Absolutely wonderful
    We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking lesson with Yui! We cooked three meals during our session and learned a lot about Thai kitchen and culture. Yui is absolutely charming and very knowledgeable and we can't wait to try our Thai meals when we get home. I would definitely recommend a session with Yui to anyone who wants to learn more about cooking Thai meals, understanding the ingredients and just have a nice time.

Yui is incredible! Due to the smoky weather in Chaing Mai, my husband and I were the only ones booked that day, so we basically had a one on one lesson with Yui on 3 different dishes. Everything was sensational, but the panaeng curry was especially delicious. We are so happy we booked this class. It was recommended from a friend and now we have a whole book of authentic Thai recipes to try at home.

This is hands down the best cooking class in Chiang Mai. I can’t imagine a better experience. Chef Yui is lovely & so knowledgeable - not to mention a fabulous chef.

She takes you through her local market & explains all of the ingredients you will be using to cook the dishes. Back at her home, she has everything set up, all you have to do is watch & learn. I couldn’t believe that I had cooked some of the dishes, they were so delicious.

Look no further - this is the must do cooking class in Chiang Mai.

Cooking good, rest not….

The cooking was good but many issues.
The cook failed to introduce herself, and did not ask about food allergies (there was one).
The kitchen needs a really good clean. Many of us got mosquito bites.
The food and cooking was very good, but the cook took us as a captive audience to expound upon her views of evolution and apparently that all other cook books are stolen from hers and only she knows how to cook……

We had the most amazing morning learning to cook authentic Thai food on our honeymoon. The food was incredible, the experience was great, we can’t wait to return in the future. Yoi was so helpful and knowledgeable, we learnt so much and are the best food. Yoi had perfect English and really helped make our cooking class special.
