Its taken me a while to get around to doing this, but reminiscing of travelling and the wonderful memories of this place made me do this review. - sammy, his wife and his adorable daughter welcomed me and the group to his beautiful farm and learnt how to cook beautiful food and had the best thai meal whilst there, it is great value for money and the little touches like lemongrass tea from the farm and a siesta on the hammocks midway is fantastic!

Ps. Ask sammy about the famous toilets!

Fun and smiling, Sammy has a wonderful cooking school just out of Chiang Mai in a beautiful setting: on his organic rice farm!

Delicious cooking in a warm-hearted atmosphere.
I enjoyed walking around his garden-like setting - with flowers and various plants growing everywhere... even in the 2 ''most beautiful washrooms in Thailand'' !
Very sweet environment, and kind & smiling staff working for Sammy and his wife.

Adapted well to a vegetarian menu!

Loved the cooking class itself,
and enjoyed lying in the hammocks after a delicious big lunch!!

A wonderful day!

Was recommended by the staff at our guesthouse. Great day spent learning thai food on Sammy's farm just outside of town. It is absolutely beautiful area. Nice to get out of the city.

Food was excellent as was Sammy and his wife both speak great English and extremely knowledgable.

We had a great day with Sammy and his wife dipping into some delicious Thai delicacies. Everything about the day was beautifully planned and executed. Both Sammy and his wife were excellent tutors, calm and patient. No question was too silly and no request a problem. One of the people on our course had a gluten allergy and another was allergic to mushrooms they were catered to without fuss. You get a lovely recipe book to take home and during every recipe European alternatives to difficult to find Thai ingredients were suggested. Of course the toilet was fabulous as other reviewers have said - an absolute blessing after the squat toilets of the hill trek we had just finished!

I think everyone else has said what I would say. My husband and I had a charming day at Sammy's. We got to cook some beautiful food, see a working rice farm, laze in a hammock for an afternoon nap and enjoy the most beautiful and eccentric toilet in the world! We have already cooked some of the recipes we did in the class and they work just as well home here in Australia. Sammy and his wife are exceptional hosts and make the experience pleasant from the the moment they pick you up from your hotel. Highly recommended as an outing with a difference. It is always enjoyable to interact with the locals because it gives a wonderful perspective to your travels.
