The Baan Thai Cooking School is located in the heart of Chiang Mai, just a few blocks from Thapae Gate (see map.) In Thai, Baan Thai means Thai Home, which is the atmosphere you will experience during your time with us. We view Baan Thai as more than just a school, but rather as an extension of our home, and an opportunity to share Thai cooking and culture with you. At Baan Thai we want you to get the most out of your stay in Chiang Mai.
Our staff emphasizes a friendly teaching style centered on actually doing, rather than watching. We guarantee that by the time you complete our course you will not only have learned a thing or two about Thai cooking but will also have had a most memorable experience.

It was beyond my expectation. The market trip was interesting, hands-on, and educational. The cooking itself was well structured. We broke out into smaller groups to make a specific dish, depending on the preferences we indicated, and ate each dish right after making it. The instructors laid every step out easily, although I doubt I'd be able to remember all the steps and ingredients on my own at home a few months later so thank goodness that they send you home with a cookbook of everything that was made! The instructors were all nice, interactive, and helpful to our learning. The only thing is that the kitchen is in an area often with lots of open windows/doors and with the smell of food and light in the evening, be aware of those mosquitoes. But regardless, highly recommend! This class was so worth it and the food was so good! We were all so full by the last dish, so make sure you come with room in your stomach - don't come starving though, because you'll have to endure the market introduction then some prep and cooking before you can eat your first dish (just have a light snack beforehand).
