This was such a good experience and the highlight of our trip to Chiang mai. Kong is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and speaks good English. The market visit was more interesting than we were expecting and we learnt so much about Thai ingredients. There were 7 of us in total and all dietary requirements were met. I can't speak highly enough of Kong and A's customer service. Having small groups definitely helps to make the classes more personal too.
Only downside was that we didn't get to learn to make our own curry paste but the recipe book provided at the end explains how to do this which is great.

We went to a cooking class with Kong at Thai Orchid on our first day in Chiang Mai; it was a busy time - right between Christmas and New Year. Kong was a wonderful teacher, patient and happy with everyone, including our 10 year old daughter at her first Thai cooking class. She even ate what she made, and not just the deep-fried spring rolls!

My husband and I traveled in Thailand for our honeymoon and the Thai Orchid Cookery School was by far our favorite activity. Kong and his wife, A, provide a perfectly organized and very informative hands-on class. My husband and I are both teachers and were very impressed by their ability to teach complicated Thai dishes so easily! We learned a lot and now feel confident to make Thai dishes at home. Highly recommended.

I'm not a good cook. But Kong and his team at the Thai Orchid Cooking School made me feel like one for the day!

As a Brit abroad who loves Thai food I was desperate to be able to recreate some of my favourite dishes when I get back home and now I truly feel equipped to do so!

After cooking a starter, curry, stir-fry and dessert I was completely stuffed by the time I left!

Being picked up directly from our hotel in an air conditioned minibus made the trip very easy and the trip to the market was really educational!

Kong also gave us lots of information about western equivalents of ingredients and where to buy what we needed when we were back home. The take home cookery book was very comprehensive and the perfect souvenir!

Thanks Kong

Extremely well organized and well run cooking school. We booked at the last minute and Kong was very accommodating, squeezing us in. Cooking options were the big favorites of Thai cooking however we requested an extra dish and Kong very kindly helped us with that. Kong had great tips about where find ingredients at home and making dishes/curry pastes ahead and storing them. The whole set up was professional and efficient and the food was wonderful!
