It was the great experience in ChiangMai. We learned how to cook Thai dishes and I enjoyed the meals. However the market tour was boring and the farm was too small. It would be better if we can buy or pick up the herbs ourselves. Btw, thank you.

Très bel endroit, belle et grande ferme, très spacieux pour cuisiner, excentré le dépaysement est au rdv, la prof de cuisine était très facile à suivre et très dynamique !
The farm is a beautiful place and nice scenery to spend the day at. Our teacher was funny and very clear in her instructions. I enjoyed the full day class a lot. They were so nice to pack us the rest of our self prepared dishes, as 5 dishes are a lot.
Thoroughly enjoyed the entire day. All of the staff were amazing and so friendly with very good English. Peanut showed us the fresh produce at the market and she was very knowledgable. Nook was our teacher and i loved her energy and character, such an awesome personality. The recipe book that I received to take home is of an amazingly high quality and much better then what I was expecting. My only negative might be that the meal sizes were too large and I was far to full to finish all of them, which seemed a common comment from others in the group. It felt a shame to see good food thrown out. A very small minor gripe on an otherwise awesome experience and as stated in my title this was the highlight of my trip to Chiang Mai. I will definitely be recommending you to any friends who visit in the future. Thank you all so much for an unforgettable day.
I attended the full day class and my teacher was Aim. I was picked up from my hotel and after a couple more stops to pick up others we were off to the market where the locals shop. Peanut showed us the herbs and spices we would be using. We only had 10 minutes to look around the market before we drove a short distance to the cooking school. The school is a lot bigger than I had thought and there were three lessons taking place at the same time. Aim was a very good teacher and very entertaining, keeping us laughing throughout the day. The full day course consists of six or seven dishes (I lost count!!) and even though you only cook a portion size for one person, by the end of the day you seriously could burst. As you cook all the dishes yourselves, it is up to you how spicy you make them. I can't eat seafood or mushrooms and chilli gives me migraines, so I just left those ingredients out. At the end of the day I was dropped back to my hotel. I would definitely recommend this cooking school to anyone.
It was so much fun! The only “bad” thing about it, was that we couldn’t eat all 7 meals
