Our family of 4 adults and 2 children (ages 9 and 11) had an awesome time with Benny. She is such a vibrant, knowledgeable, fun, humorous cooking instructor! Our day started at a local market where we learned a lot about Thai ingredients and dishes. Then we went to her home and made a number of dishes ourselves. We can't wait to try making everything at home. Thanks for the great experience, Benny!

Spent New Year’s Eve with Benny and my 2 20-something sons. We had the best time ! Benny met us at a local market, showed us some unusual foods for sale there, and bought some snacks for us to sample before going to her home, where she has a lovely outdoor pavilion of sorts all set up for her cooking classes. (As a bonus, it borders a rice patty with a gorgeous sunset view!). Benny was incredibly organized. Her mom, sister, and partner help to set up the ingredients, wash dishes, etc., so that Benny was totally focused on the 3 of us, explaining and teaching about the foods we were preparing and cooking. She is super personable and enthusiastic, AND the foods were ALL delicious! Highly recommend this great experience!!

We had a great day with Benny and her kitchen fairies. Benny responded quickly to emails and picked us up promptly. She walked around the market with us and had us try a few things. Her love of food and joy in sharing it were wonderful. We learned a lot and ate a lot!

This was amazing! Benny is the sweetest woman. We laughed, talked, cooked, and ate all day long. They picked us op at the hostel, brought us to the local market and then to their own home to cook. At the end of the day they bring you back to the place you're staying at with a full stomach! Thank you so much for letting us feel so welcome at your place!😍💛

This class was one of the most memorable activities we did in Chiang Mai. The small classes and a casual atmosphere makes you feel like you're cooking at a friend's home. Benny is a great host and fantastic teacher. This class is a must if you looking for some Thai knowldge and experience.

My wife and I took the private dinner cooking class with Benny and had a blast. We were picked up form our hotel in a classic Songtaew (Red Truck Taxi) and visited a local market ~40 min outside Chiang Mai. Benny gave us a tour of the market before we headed over to her family's house to cook. Her family's house has a well-equipped outdoor kitchen with plenty of shade. There's cold water for free and plenty of beer for purchase.

Benny and her staff gave us a wonderful experience, walking us through several recipes step-by-step and making sure we executed them ourselves, patiently answering questions and correcting our technique. My wife is an avid chef and she really appreciated the attention. The food was absolutely delicious.

Between meals we enjoyed Benny's company, comparing life and culture in the US and Thailand. This was probably the most enjoyable part of the experience for me.

Great value for the experience, highly recommended!

I attended Benny’s Home Cooking Full Day Class on January with my mom and we both really enjoyed it! It was so much fun to make the food and then eat it. And surprisingly all my dishes tasted amazing. The location was really beautiful about 20 to 30 minutes outside of downtown Chiang Mai.

We had a really great time with Benny on our visit to Chiang Mai.

The cooking class was excellent value and while there we learned a lot about Thai food, culture and Benny and her family.

I would highly recommend this to any visitor to the area.

We were picked up promptly from our hotel. There were four guests so quite a small group, which was great. The maximum class size is 8 people so you will always have the personal touch.

We visited a local market, no other tourists about, and got to look around and sample some snacks there.

Then we went back to Benny’s house for the class proper.

Benny is a great teacher and injects lots of fun into the day. We prepared and ate 5 courses, all of which were delicious.

Then at the end we got a recipe book to take home.

Thanks Benny!

We had a fantastic time at Benny’s learning to cook authentic Thai food. It was great to have so much choice, and she caters for al sorts of dietary requirements. Benny is really knowledgable, and the trip around the market was really interesting; an added bonus to the actual cooking. When she says to have a small breakfast beforehand she means it; you won’t come back with an empty stomach!

Absolutely, hands down, an unforgettable experience during our time in Chiang Mai!

We ended up booking a private dinner cooking class due to constraints with our timing. Benny arranged for a us to be picked up near our AirBnB, then brought to a market outside of the main city where we met her and selected the dishes we'd each be cooking (4 courses, each person in the party was able to customize their menu). Then she took us for a tour of the market, explaining the culture and intent behind the different food and stands, and we got to taste so many interesting and delicious treats I never would have picked up! Once we got back to Benny's house and the outdoor cooking setup, we started on our dishes - everyone cooked simultaneously. The curries, noodle dishes, desserts -- it was all amazing and such fun to cook! It was a long day which had us worried at first, but the time flew by and it was totally worth it.

Benny is friendly, funny, warm, silly, kind, and patient. Cooking with her and her family was such a joy, and I can't recommend this experience enough!
