JJ was a great Akha cooking instructor. Easy to understand. Place was well organised to cater to max 10 pax. There were breaks in between to partake the food that were just cooked & we also get to network during those times.
we learned so much about the food and the culture, we did a local market tour first where you get the chance to taste local different products. The staff is super friendly and knowleadgable. I would definitely recommend, you do 11 dishes with a take home cook book
I had so much fun taking this cooking class. The instructor, Cherry, was absolutely delightful and funny. All the food we made was delicious. I learned so many interesting things and now cook so much more Thai food at home. I'd go again in a heart beat; it's well worth the money.
Good taste and variety
Good food, great taste and excellent tutor... Thanks a lot and congratulations!
I can't recommend this class highly enough - just fantastic. The class was interesting (especially having the chance to go around the market beforehand to learn about the ingredients), paced well and we learnt and cooked an interesting array of dishes. Very entertaining and informative.
An very happy experience. The market visit let us see many special ingredient. The instructor gives us some really practical and interesting cooking tips. This class is value for money. I will highly recommend this cooking class to Chiang Mai visitors.
Our group had so much fun. JJ was great using humour and guiding us patiently through the steps. Highly recommend the morning class with the market tour. No need for breakfast for you will be cooking 11 different dishes and so will have more than plenty to eat. In fact you likely won’t even need dinner. Would definitely recommend this if you want to learn about Thai cooking
Will take my sister next time.
We really enjoyed it. It was a wonderful experience and we truly recommend it. We learned many tips and tricks about Thai food and about Thai culture in general. Thank you!
We had been at the cooking event as a couple. We really enjoyed the activities offered by cookly. First, we spent some time at the market to deepen our knowledge about local ingredients for our meals and tasted different groceries, we liked it. Cooking was also quite good, everything was made with fresh vegetables and traditional Thai/ akha food. Because u are cooking and therefore eating a lot, I would suggest to not eat much before. Why we only give 4 instead of 5 stars is that the coordinaten with some dishes was not optimal so that we ate it cold. All in all we recommend the cooking class.
The teacher could not take care everyone finally we cooked no good
We had so much fun. The teacher was really really nice and spoke english perfectly. One of the best activities we've done in our trip.
The cooking teacher is fluent in English (uncommon in Thaillande). We have learn 11 dishes in a half day. We receive a cooking book also avaidable in Internet.
Our class was at capacity, which concerned me at first, but it turned out to be a fabulous experience, in part because of the other participants. The market tour was informative and didn't feel hurried. The class itself was amazing. I am a chef at home in the US, and admittedly, my expectations were low-ish for a class like this, but they far, far exceeded my expectations. The mise en place was on point, the instructor was personable and very clear with instruction, and she gave great recommendations for substitutes of ingredients if we have to sub at home. The end was a family style meal in the dining room of the home of the hosts. It's a great way to get to know fellow travelers, and it's a nice way to relax and enjoy the end results of your labors.
My 11 year old son and did cooking and loved it. It was easy instructions and fun
Wonderful day learning Thai Cooking. Cherry was an excellent and animated teacher. Love it!!! Highly recommended if you want to learn Thai Cooking.
Great cooking class and amazing instructed Cherry:)
It was a true pleasure to walk around in a traditional market of Chiang Mai. We discovered the best ingredients, special tips to know how to buy in a fresh market and more! We ate a small and DELICIOUS cake :D As for the cooking school, I made the right decision of not eating before going to the cooking class! It was a true delight to eat the food that I made by myself !! The recipe book you gave us will be in good hands and I will definitely cook again the delicious dishes that we've learned! Thank you very much!!
A great experience with an excellent teacher!
