We had so much fun at the cooking class. Everything was great from the pickup, the market tour, the hosts and especially the food! The location was spectacular too. Would highly recommend.
Thijs was a perfect cooking class: Very welcoming hostesses, Very good lessons, perfect good food and very nice company.
We had a great cooking class! We were picked-up at our hotel and dropped back off. De visit at the local market was nice and we cooked 5 meals. The ones we cooldn’t eat, were packed to take with us!
We spent a great day at that beautiful farm. The family is so nice and you really see that they like what they are doing. Everybody could decide for themselves what to cook which I think is very cool as I am a vegetarian. Pickup at the hostel also worked perfectly. I can definitely recommend doing it, you'll meet some very nice people!
My 20 year year old daughter and I took this class today and loved every part of the experience! Ploy, the very engaging woman who founded the school, picked us up at our hotel and quickly gave us the option to each pick out five different items to prepare. We, of course picked different items, so that we could share 10 different things. Two each of starters, soups, currys, main dishes and desserts! We proceeded to go to a great street market where we tasted and learned about many ingredients specific to Thai cooking. Ploy also picked up some items that were needed based on the menu choices we made. We then drove to the cooking school which is on a farm that has been in Ploy's family for many years. It was a completely charming place where we picked many of the herbs and vegetables required for our dishes and also got to feed the fish (over 1000?) that inhabit the pond surrounding the school. Ploy's sister Jumpii, who is equally charming, lead most of the instruction as my daughter and I were shown how to prepare all the ingredients and cook the courses. As lovers of Thai food we could not been any more satisfied with how delicious every one of the dishes tasted. Knowing that we prepared them, made it all the better. I should mention that they are also very accommodating to working with ingredients that are gluten or dairy free, should that be a concern. As we finished our meal, (and we were both stuffed!), Jumpii e-mailed us not only the recipes for what we made, but for all 25 menu options. Upon completion, the two wonderful women drove us back to our hotel. I cannot say enough positive things about how amazing (and budget friendly) the whole experience was!
Greatly prepared and incredible experience
We loved our tour of the market and cooking class with Baan Cooking School. We enjoyed picking vegetables and feeding the fish. They were even kind enough to give my friend a mango (she wanted a green one that is sour).
For this price, I LOVED the experience! It was above and beyond what I expected. The instructor picked us up from the hotel, took us to a local market where we got to see spices and herbs and fruits and we got to try them too! Then we got to the cooking class and was able to pick some ingredients fresh from the garden! Finally, we made a five course meal! It was a wonderful, fun and delicious experience. In addition, the host took lots of professional looking photos that I got to share with family and friends who were all very jealous! I would recommend 100%!!!!
This farm it’s incredibly beautiful and the family is just lovely. Thank you for letting us having a great time while we learn about Thai cuisine. Music, laughs, good vibes and a lot of smiles. The food was really tasty. I had an amazing time. The visit to the market is a nice plus and all the food you use is really fresh. I’ll totally recommend this place. They also send you all the recipes!
We really enjoyed our morning at Baan farm. We were the only ones for the morning so had a private lesson. The market tour was very interesting and the farm was a great setting to cook. We chose 5 dishes each to make so 10 dishes in total. Lots of delicious food (and we took some away with us). Our teacher was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
This class was great! It included a pickup from our hostel (so convenient), followed by a trip to a local market where we learned all about some new fruits and vegetables. We then picked some veggies at the farm while our lovely host explained the farming processes. The recipes were super yummy and flexible enough to serve my omnivore friend and me (vegan). We had too much food to eat, so they were kind enough to pack up our leftovers. Overall, I highly recommend this class to anyone who has only a few days in Chiang Mai and wants to learn about Thai cooking.
I had a great experience at the cooking class it was nice to be at an organic farm cooking Thai food. Everyone at the class was very nice and the meals that we cooked were very tasty. I really liked that everyone in the class were able to choose the 5 meals they wanted to cook so it gave a lot of variety. I left the class being very full and happy. Highly recommend this class for anyone visiting Chiang Mai
It was a great way to spend the morning. Met some lovely people and really enjoyed the food.
Everything was well planned from start to finish. The sisters were super nice and answered all our questions patiently. The farm is at a very quiet place outside of town and it was beautiful! And last but not least (actually probably the most important part) the food was just amazing!! Would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Great explanation and instructions!
Ploy and jumpy are amazing and so kind!! Food is amazing and they speak very good English and answer every question we have. Great day!!
Jumpii was a wonderful guide and teacher! She was a great communicator and her energy made shopping and cooking in the crazy summer heat fun. We loved exploring the market and picking our own produce and the kitchen sat on top of a pond, which was really unique.
The class was amazing and one of the highlights of my trip to Chiang Mai! The dishes were delicious and I can't wait to cook them when I get home 😊
The cooking class was awesome. Everyone was super nice, the farm is lovely and the food tastes so great. I can highly recommenend this course!
My sister and I took the afternoon class and had an absolutely amazing time. We got picked up at our hotel and went to a local market first, were we had the opportunity to try several local specialties. Afterwards, we drove to the farm, which was an absolutely beautiful location. The girls were very friendly and helpful at all times and it was no problem to get a vegan version for myself for all dishes. The class was my absolute highlight during my trip to Thailand and I cannot recommend it enough :)
The cooking class at Baan farm was very nice, from pick up to the visit of the market, the cooking experience and the recipe ebook we got at the end! We were only four people taking the class that day and we could all choose our own menu. Vegetarian and vegan options fir all dishes available. Can only recommend this class, the sisters were lovely and spoke English very well.
So easy and friendly, I really enjoyed my day :)
This was such a fun class! The teachers were amazing and super sweet. Started with a market tour where they gave us snacks and showed us all the vegetables and ingredients we’d be using, then picked up the remainder from their farm! I’m vegetarian so they helped me modify all food to meet my dietary restrictions, everything was delicious. Lots of fun, would recommend to anyone!
It was a great time at Baan Farm cooking school. We had so much fun and the cooking instructors were really really nice and good in what they are doing. Everything was perfectly organized. Thank you so much girls!
This was an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone. They picked us up from the hotel and took us to a local market where they taught us about local Thai produce and fruits. We then arrived at the farm where we picked some fresh ingredients for our dishes and proceeded to cook them with instructions from our hosts. They are so friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful time that we'll always remember. We will also send all or friends to this cooking class. Thank you for the great time!!
We had so much fun at Baan Farm! We were picked up from our hotel and took a tour around a market before heading off to the farm. All of our ingredients were ready when we arrived - except for the few ingredients we picked around their garden, which I found very interesting to learn why certain parts of the plants were used and not others. Cooking went smoothly - we were expertly guided through each step and never felt like we were asking silly questions (which, for someone who doesn’t really cook, was much appreciated!!). Honestly, we felt like we were just cooking with a big group of friends! We learned so much and are so excited to practice what we learned back at home!
It was great cooking and a nice athmosphere! My whole family really enjoyed it and we can’t wait to cook it at home! (Our friends cant wait too ;-)) we. And home happy and full and it was great!
We had great fun! The plucking of ingredients wasn't a very big part. But the amount of food we made in a couple of hours was amazing and everything tasted great. Would definitely recommend as a must do in Chiang Mai!
Great experience!! Their Farm and space are very clean and cute. We had a lot of fun during the class, the girls were very friendly and helpful. You feel like the class is going very fast and you won't remember every detail but they'll send you a cooking book so you don't need to worry on making notes. You'll get to eat a lot in the class you definitely can skip breakfast
This class was so fun! The staff and group we were with made it amazing, and what is better than good food with good company? We made the right amount of food (not too stuffed.) The sisters were so kind, helpful, and fun to talk to. All in all, a really great experience!
We enjoyed the whole experience from visiting the local market , going around the garden and cooking very different and tasty meals
This cooking class will be a major highlight in our trip here. The host was super nice and made us feel welcome from the first second. The market she took us to had delicious food and was packed with locals (so you know it’s authentic and cheaper than tourist spots). The cooking class itself was really well organized and we came out with a bunch of delicious food. I highly recommend to stop looking at the other options and pick this one. I’m glad I did.
Had such a wonderful time at our Baan Farm cooking class! The walk through the local market was so much fun and we loved tasting the local fruits and treats while learning about the culture and food. The farm is absolutely beautiful and the perfect setting for the class. It was nice to be out of the busy city for a bit. Our instructors were so friendly and informative and really helped us to enjoy the experience.
What a morning! My girlfriend and I signed up to Baan Farm Thai Cooking School after reading online that they cater very well to vegans. We were not disappointed. Our instructor was passionate, attentive, and informative, ensuring that we were fully aware of all the ingredients used for our meals. First we headed to a local market that was arguably the most authentic place we visited in Chiang Mai; not a farang in sight! We sampled some local delicacies (our instructor ensured we only had the vegan ones) and had a look around before being taken to the location of our classroom for the day. The location was truly stunning; a farm in the rural outskirts to the North-East of Chiang Mai. Even with the air pollution blocking our view of the skies and the mountains, the setting was incredibly serene and put us all at ease straight away. The number of pupils was perfect, with my girlfriend and I being joined by three lovely American girls travelling from California. We donned some aprons and hats, picked some ingredients from around the farm, and got to work! After chopping up the ingredients for our respective meals, we cooked up a storm! Our tutor guided us every step of the way to ensure we had our pans on the perfect heat, and that our meals were neither over or under cooked. By the time we sat down with our fresh dishes in front of us we were excited to taste our own creations. I opted for the following dishes: Glass Noodle in Vegetable Soup; Deep Fried Spring Rolls; Penang Curry; Fried Tofu with Cashew Nuts; and Mango Sticky Rice. It was an absolute feast, and the price for the cooking class was worth it just for the glorious five-course meal at the end. There was so much food that we had to take some home to enjoy later! By the time we were back at our hostel we were completely stuffed, and felt like we had learnt so much about the secrets of Thai cuisine. We were sent a collection of the recipes from the day and look forward to trying them when we are back in the UK. It was a lovely morning and a valuable experience, I would recommend it to everyone, whether you are vegan or not!
I had a great time learning to cook some Staples, along with learning about the core ingredients in Thai cooking and how they may differ from what I can find back home. The school and farm are lovely.
We had a great time and the farm was a great place to have the cooking class! Would totally recommend!!
We had a lunch class with Polly. She picked us up, took us to the market. She was very knowledgeable and fun. We then went back to the farm where she explained each step of the dish and how it is prepared. The food was delicious and we had a lot of fun preparing it. Great experience.
Very good basic cooking class
Great location, fantastic people and amazing vegan food!:) The market tour was very cool as well.
Such a fun class, lovely farm, enjoyed the stop at the market and picking fresh ingredients at the farm. I would highly recommend this class
The cooking course is just perfect. We enjoyed the visit to the local market and we cooked 5 dishes!! I would definitely recommend it to everyone. A must if you visit Chiang Mai!
Great experience, friendly and professional staff, beautiful location!
We truly had the best time. They picked us up right at out accommodation and were so lovely and friendly to us. We were in a class with 8 others so 10 in total. They took us to a market and showed us many of the vegetables and spices that we would be using in our cooking which was very cool to see. We even got to try some of the food there. We then drove to the Baan farm which was so beautiful and we picked our ingredients!!! The cooking environment was open and there were fans. And literally everything went smoothly. I took so much from this course! We made so much food and it was all delicious and I cannot describe how lovely the people were. Please do this course it was such a great experience
We enjoyed everything... The pick up was on time, the dishes were amazing, the host was soooo friendly :) Thank you!
The instructors and all the staff were very polite and patient in answering all of our questions. The class was very informative and was a pleasant way to spend the morning.
I would recommend this cooking class to anyone in Chiang Mai !! The farm is outside the city so you feel in the country side, and Khun Ploy made it perfect ! We cooked really good vegetarian food, everything was amazing !!!
I had so much fun ! Ploy and Jumpy were so great. Especially making your own curry paste is such a good experience and you have a little workout ;) You can cook everything veggie and vegan. Thank you guys ! LM
Great cooking class, from the moment we were picked up till the end. Everything was explained well and afterwards we could take the food we didn't eat with us.
I've been to two other cooking classes in Chiang Mai and this one is a stand out! Great staff, wonderful facility...overall super experience.
Everything from start to ending was really fun to experience. The host was very friendly and patient. I would really recommend this class.
We booked this cooking class because of the good recommendations and we were not disappointed! :-) everything worked fine from the beginning to the end. We were picked up at the hostel (included in the price) on time. Visiting the market was fun, we got to try some food. We could each individually choose which 5 dishes. Everything was well prepared, we had a lot of fun cooking, the teacher was super nice. We got to eat all our food, which was really delicious :) since it was a lot, we were able to take home the rest, which was great :) we can totally recommend this cooking school :)!
Everything was good from beginning to end.
Very friendly and homey atmosphere!
All in all, everything was good! The place, the food, and the teacher spoke good English. Thank you so much!
One of the best cultural experience in Thailand. Ploy is a very friendly instructor who explained the ingredients, preparation until the cooking process very well! A very informative class, you know everything you need to know to make some simple dishes of Thai food at home! ;)
Super contenta con la experiencia. Muy buenas explicaciones, todo organizado a la perfección. Para repetir y recomendar. Gracias
Booked this course late in the evening for the following morning, and everything worked out as offered - on time pick up, and visit the local market. Our instructor Ploy guided us around the fruits and vegetables explaining the different products they offer before allowing the group 10 mins to wander around exploring on our own. Then we were taken to her family’s Baan Farm Cookery School located only a few miles outside the city, where we picked more fresh herbs, vegetables and flowers to cook with. Not that Chiang Mai is really bustling, but the time in the country, away from the city was really relaxing. The course is conducted in a purpose-built, open-air facility at the farm, and although there were only 3 of us, there were many more cooking stations available, probably 18-20. Ably assisted by Joy, Ploy talked us through the preparation of our various choices of appetizers, soup, curry, stir fry, and desserts, making everything from scratch. The experience was excellent and a great way to spend a few hours. My only advice to people taking the course is, go hungry! However, the team will box and bag anything you can’t eat for you to take home. An hour after being dropped off at home, an email arrived with a pdf book of almost 30 recipes detailing everything that was covered during the course. Definitely, recommend this to anyone visiting Chiang Mai.
I really enjoyed my afternoon of cooking at Baan Farm. I was a little apprehensive as I’m vegan and gluten-intolerant but was taken care :) After a trip to the local market and picking fresh vegetables and herbs from the organic farm we set towards cooking (after some ice tea!). The location is so beautiful and peaceful, perfect if you want to get away from the bustling city. We sat and enjoyed our feast as the sun set and it really was such a nice experience. Thank you so much!
Ploy is very friendly. I enjoyed the class very much and I am glad I learned to cook Thai food while I am in Chiang Mai, it’s a good experience. Ploy explained all the details and answered all my questions. I highly recommend taking this class. I also enjoyed picking some of the ingredients at her organic farm.
Baan Farm Thai was an amazing location to have a cookery class. The entire experience was great. We were away from the city in a beautiful location. I loved how we were able to pick fresh ingredients from their farm to use in our dishes. Every step of the course was informative and interesting. I never felt rushed or confused about what we were doing. On the way to the course we stopped by a local market, which was great too. Also it was no problem to switch out meat for delicious tofu as I’d requested to cook vegetarian food. Amazing value and we all got the recipes provided at the end. More people should go to Baan Farm Thai when they’re in Chiang Mai!
An excellent way to learn about Thai food while actually making it. The whole experience is great value: hotel pickup/drop-off, visiting the market and getting actual insight into what ingredients are used for, then very fun, organized and straightforward cooking instruction by Ploy, and unreservedly stuffing us with food while feeling very self-satisfied :))
The class was great, from pick up to finish! The farm was a very beautiful setting and everything was set and ready for our class. We really enjoy the time there, the company and of course the food! I was the best by far!
The whole experience from the market, to the picking herbs at the farm, the cooking and then of course the eating was absolutely brilliant! Ploy was a wonderful teacher and as only two of us had booked that afternoon we got a private class! 100% would recommend as a must do experience!
The market tour and farm were both lovely, as were our hosts. It was so much fun to cook different dishes and a real pleasure to eat them!! Our hosts were very sweet and knowledgeable about Thai dishes and cooking. Highly recommend this class!
Great experience. I’d recommend it. Loved that they started with the local market. Picking the ingredients in the garden was a fun bonus.
This was the best cookery class I have ever been to. So well organised, informative and extremely well taught. Facilities were amazing. Our teacher was fantastic, so kind and thoughtful.
Fresh ingredients from their organic garden, clean and charming place, wonderful instructor, the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place .
The cooking class was so much fun and also the people there were very friendly. I found it super interesting visiting the local market and getting to know all the ingredients we also later used for cooking. The dishes were all very delicious and I think no one left hungry because we prepared so much food. I can really recommend this cooking school!
This class was the best thing we did in Chiang Mai! The staff were hilarious, engaging, helpful, clear and it was an all around amazing time! Don't miss out on this experience!
Trip to the market was informative. Chance to pick our own herbs fun. The classroom was meticulously clean. Phoy made the cooking experience fun and foolproof. The food was delicious!
Ploy is an amazing, enthusiastic teacher who clearly loves what she does! The market tour was a lovely intro. Each attendee makes five dishes of their choosing, with fresh herbs from the garden beside the school. It was such an easy, pleasant way to spend the morning, and I highly recommend this class to anyone curious about Thai food.
Our instructor was a true professional. We had so much fun and the class was easy to follow yet tasty! Definitely recommend!
Very dynamic, organized, the food is delicious! The place is also beautiful!
From pick up to drop off everything was perfect. Ploi (name of our instructor) was incredibly friendly and enthusiatic and could remember every detail of our individual meal plan. You can cook every dish in a vegetarian way. The food was great, but it was a lot to take in (with 5 courses). The farm is very cute and everything they use is locally grown or from the market in Chiang Mai. Thanks for the lovely experience!
This was such a fun experience! Our guide was amazing and so kind. The food was sooooo good! Coming from someone who can’t cook and doesn’t enjoy to cook, I had a great time! Plus they email you the recipes afterwards so you can make it again! I highly recommend it and it’s a great way to meet new people!!!
Well organized and a really good time. From the market to the farm and all of the steps of the whole day, I would highly recommend the Baan Farm for a wonderful Thai cooking experience!
Thank you, Neena!
We really enjoyed, especially with the other guest. It was so much fun.
From the pickup to the drop off, everything was very dynamic and joyful! Neena was awesome and very funny!
Loved the whole experience. Met cool people, chefs are so fun and great. Always helpful and have good English! Fun experience!
The hospitality of the instructors was incredible. From start to finish it was fantastic. From the tour of the local market to the picking of the fresh produce and then making the dishes that you can select yourself... We highly recommend this experience.
Fresh air, fresh ingredients, very nice place
I definitely found a family away from home. Travelling alone can be lonely, and thank God I took this class. Through this cooking school, it made my whole stay in Thailand meaningful and rich. I was able to immerse myself and be a Thai for a day. Everything was organic. I would highly recommend this class and i will be back for more!
Perfectly Organized! Many options to cook and also possible for vegetarians. The Timeline was not too short not too long. Visiting the market in a small group was very interesting - group is not too big. Everybody is cooking for themselves. Great teacher, delicious food, beautiful farm and the ingredients was own plucked. It was also a funny course. I would recommend it to everybody !
The lady who cooked with us is very nice and has taught us a lot. Everything was very well organized and the food was delicious. lovely again
Lots of amazing food and awesome staff/owner Ploy. We really enjoyed checking out the market and learning more about some of the interesting foods we were seeing. It was also fun to pick the fresh herbs and veggies!
We had a great time at the cooking class. The guide was very friendly and funny. She explained us everything about the ingredients and the recepies and answered all of our questions with great patient and a big smile. The dishes we made were very tasty. The guide helped us made vegan variants of all the dishes we wanted. We especially enjoyed the part where we made our own curry paste. Come hungry as there is a lot of food to eat! Thank you very much for a great experience! A few small cons: - the kitchen is in an open space so no air conditioning. There are a few fans but you can't always turn them at you as things may be blown away. - the "farm" only contains a few rows of plants, so don't expect too much from that. It is nice to be out of town tough. - you don't really get to buy the ingredients for your dishes at the local market. It is mainly for some explanations and the feel of visiting an authentic market (which was very interesting). - we needed to choose the dishes on the way to the farm using s short page with the names of all the possible dishes. It would be nice to have a more detailed explanation of each dish (or at least some pictures) before choosing.
The teacher was really friendly, we learn a lot in just a few hours. The meals were delicious !
We loved the cooking class! It was just perfect. The atmosphere, the lovely teacher and the food!!
I had a ton of fun in the class. I most definitely would recommend!
The class was a lot more fun than I had anticipated. The two ladies that taught the class had wonderful personalities -- upbeat, friendly and funny. The amount of food portioned for each person was very generous. There was so much food we could barely ate it all. Their recipes yielded super delicious food, with quality comparable to that at some nice sit-down restaurants. Everything was tasty except for the sticky rice in the mango sticky rice dish. It could use some improvement. It lacked that coconut flavor. Also for the banana in coconut milk dessert, they should have used ripe bananas because ripe bananas cook faster and are sweeter. The bananas they used were not ripe enough, so they took longer to cook and still retain some astringent taste to them. One more cons, the class is kind of a way out of Chiang Mai center, but they pick you and drop you off. Overall, I highly recommend this class!
Instructor was amazing, so much knowledge and had a fun attitude.
We had great fun going to the market and being instructed about the different kinds of spices and vegetables! At Baan Thai farm we collected all ingredients direct from the garden so we learned more about the vegetables and everything was so fresh! Every single person had its own cooking place and our teacher explained every single step! We even made our own curry paste which is hard work but worth doing!! Share this beautiful cooking lesson in a most beautiful surrounding with the most lovely teacher ever!!!👍😍
It was an amazing class. Everyone were very enthusiastic and their English was really good. We learned a lot of things and everything was so well prepared! I would really recommend others to take this class!
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class at Baan Farm. The food was delicious, pick up at our hotel was on time and our instructor was friendly and was happy to show us around at a local market and let us taste different foods. She was also familiar with veganism and was happy to cater to our needs.
The class was amazing, we learnt a lot. So much fun going to the local market to pick up ingredients. The farm is lovely. Our teacher was very nice and friendly with perfect english. Thank you for everything!!
We had an awesome time at Baan Organic Farm. We started at the market and learned many things about Thai ingredients. We had fun sampling foods and produce. When we arrived at the farm, we picked herbs. There was so many choices in the courses to cook and the recipes catered to your dietary needs. Ploy, Mae and Nina were fun and knowledgeable and helpful. We also met some wonderful people, made new friends and shared all our dishes. I highly recommend attending this cooking class!
Nina and her friend were great! They were friendly and everything was run very professionally. It was an amazing experience!!
This class was absolutely amazing! It exceeded all expectations and then some :) We each were able to make our own dishes and by the time we got to the entree we were already full! I especially liked the extra added touch of them sending us the recipes of what we prepared so we can do it at home. The grounds were beautiful, well organized course and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Mahalo from Hawaii!
Nice & beautiful professional people. All was right!
It was a really nice experience and we cooked a really delicious food. I recomend you go to this class, we all (8) enjoyed it!! :)
Had the best day with Ploy at this cooking class, she is the nicest! We were so privileged to be only 3 people for the morning lesson, we had a tour at an incredible local market, and picked some more ingredients at her farm where we cooked. This farm is such a lovely place to have a cooking lesson and all the people working here were so delightful. I cooked the best pad Thai and 4 more dishes, and I was so full after eating all of that but it was so good! I highly recommend the Baan Thai farm cooking class, it made my day!! With love, Adriane.
This was one of our favorite experience in Chiang Mai. Our cook and guide, Kanyarat, was amazing. We went to a local market and she explained local fruits and vegetables, we also got to taste some of the fruits and banana wrapped sticky rice (delicious), we then went to the farm and picked ingredients from the garden to cook with. The class room was clean and the menu we got to choose from was great. I loved making the papaya spicey salad and curries, the banana and mango deserts were also great. Then we got to sit and eat the meal we prepared in the beautiful location. Best Cooking Class in Thailand. Karen and Geoff.
After pick-up we went straight to the local market. Really nice to see big tables filled with ingredients. Then we continued to the farm where we got some ingredients from the garden and we started cooking. Made some 5-6 tasty dishes and it was too much to eat, really good.
Very friendly instructor, on time, great choice of recipes, very accommodating to dietry requirements.
The course was WONDERFUL! Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, organized and fluent in English. Would HIGHLY recommend for a 1/2 day experience, and suggest the morning class for a tour of the market.
Relaxed, informative fun and delicious!
All was well organized and easy to cook. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the good food. I’d like to do it again.
Great class taught by the sweetest ladies. Made a huge amount of food that was absolutely delicious with ingredients from the local market and from their own adorable garden where we got to pick our own ingredients. Very enjoyable class.
Perfect way to spend an afternoon in Chiang Mai! Loved going to the market and learning about the ingredients and picking fresh ingredients from the garden! The food was delicious and plentiful.☺
Wonderful experience, fresh ingredients, tasty food and nice surroundings of the organic farm not far from Chiang Mai. Super-friendly instructor. Highly recommended.
A really lovely experience. We booked an afternoon class and happened to be the only ones, so we got a private class. Ploy was really sweet and funny. I have some dietary restrictions but Ploy was happy to help with suggestions. I suggest not eating much beforehand as you'll be making 5 dishes (all super delicious!)
I want to share Thai Food with my family in Colombia!
Loved the initial tour through the market, then picking ingredients from the family farm. The cooking facility was fantastic and wide open. The food ingredients were so fresh and tasty. Our hosts / instructors were beautiful and charming as they taught us to create a gorgeous and delicious meal. Well organized and thoroughly enjoyed!
Great class with very good teachers. Good selection of recipes. They were all delicious! The classs started with a visit of a nice local market. We would definitely recommend it!
Ploy was a wonderful teacher and the food was delicious! The trip to the market and harvesting food at the farm was huge learning experience. We could not have been happier with our time at Baan farm with Ploy and Joy! This is a must do in Chiang Mai!
Absolutely amazing, lovely people, great place, and amazing food of course! Had a small class of only 4 people, it was great! You should really do that during your stay in Chiang Mai!
All staff in Baan Farm Thai Cooking School are friendly and thoughtful! This was the best experience I have ever had in Thailand!
We enjoyed both the market tour and the class a lot. Unexpectedly we were the only ones participating so it felt like a private class. The teacher is very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Finally, the food that we prepared was absolutely delicious and we even got to make a local dish with chicken blood outside of the cookbook. All in all it was a wonderful experience!
My friend and I had the whole class to ourselves and were blown away by the thoughtfulness of our instructors and thoroughness of the class. The market part was fun and I enjoyed sampling some random food. Then a quick car ride out of town to a beautiful farm was so relaxing! We picked our courses and jumped in! We got to pick some of our own herbs to use and learned so much about the Thai flavors! We got great instructions and help along the way as we made 6 incredible courses!! So much fun!
We loved the market, the farm, the cooking and the girls! Really worth while, great atmosphere and the food was absolutely delicious. Great way to spend a morning. Absolutely would do it again.
Very personal cooking event with lots of awesome food 😍
Fun class, didn't love everything that was cooked, but enjoyed most of the dishes.
I can't tell you how great this cooking class was. We had the best time with Ploy and TJ who are great instructors and awesome, funny people! We LOVED that we could easily switch to an all-vegetarian menu and the market tour, fresh veggie/herb picking, and cooking class itself was exceptional. The farm is beautiful and well-equipped, we also got to feed the fish! You end up with a pdf booklet with all of the recipes and you even get to bring food home (we had enough for a big dinner). I cannot recommend this class enough.
We had such a lovely time and Poi (sorry if misspelled) was so great! We first went to the market and learned more about Thai food and tried some fruit, then we got to the farm and picked some veg for our meals! We cooked all 5 dishes, definitely try the mango sticky rice!! We were then dropped off back to our hostel, it was a great experience and such good value for money!
I can totally recommend the cooking course! There is no point to be criticized. Before the cooking course we visited the local market and learned a lot about Thai vegetables. We could also taste pancakes and many exotic fruits. The owner makes a lot of effort in the cooking course to explain the individual steps and helps you where she can with a lot of enthusiasm. The home-cooked dishes tasted great and you should definitely come with an empty stomach. All in all, a really great afternoon.
Really enjoyed the Thai cooking experience. Was at a loss of what to do on hotel transfer day in Chiang Mai and found this on the internet. Booked it at 23.00 and was collected next morning at 09.45. Lovely people, lovely food and got me back to my hotel in time for my train to Bangkok. Highly recommended. Wayne
Nos encantó la experiencia, desde la visita al mercado hasta la degustación de nuestras propias recetas. Las profesoras fueron muy atentas.
It was a very nice lesson. We learned a lot of the Thai food from the fruits, vegetables, herbs and cooked all of this. The staff was very helpful and friendly. For a person like me who never cooks, it was a lot of fun. It was one of the best activities on our Thailand trip.
Very informative, well planned with a great English speaking Thai chef
Had an excellent time! Host picked me up and took us to a local market letting us try some of the local fruit. The cooking experience was fantastic, she walked us through how to make our chosen meal options and was friendly, patient and light-hearted throughout :) would definitely recommend... also go on an empty stomach: so much food!!
This class was so fun! The instructor was so sweet, informative, and was an all around great teacher. Highly recommend if your looking to make/eat traditional Thai dishes and have a relaxing morning/afternoon.
The class was as described in the brochure and it was a wonderful experience! The host was so nice and described each step so well and made the market experience and cooking experience so fun and enjoyable! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Chiang Mai area!
It was great to have a cooking class at organic farm. The atmosphere was awesome. The teacher was super nice as well. I definitely recommend everyone travelling Chiang Mai to take the class and experience the exotic Thai cooking recipes. Mind that you are going to eat a lot in the class. Go with your stomach empty. Have fun!
From beginning to end was a fun experience. They pick you up from your location and let you live out where the locals go to shop for groceries. Needless to say the food was delicious. They will email you all the recipes so you can try them out at home. The atmosphere of the class was light-hearted with the occasional banter. Also! Special shout out to our instructor who gave us exclusive accommodations! Thank you, we enjoyed the class!
Great combo of getting explanation on local products on the market, being able to pick fresh herbs from the farm, have some good laughs with the local people and enjoying a good time while cooking your favorite thai dishes.
We had a really great experience. The class was fun and the food was really good. All in all I can recommend that class!
It was amazing. Very Nice place . Thanks for all
Amazing and peaceful location, loving and knowledgeable staff which gave us a wonderful experience of the Thai kitchen!
May was easy going and helpful in teaching us how to cook thai food.
We learnd a lot about the food, ingredients and the preparation. It was really interesting. Thank you!
I had a great time, learned a lot and ate even more! Highly recommend!!
The people were super nice, the food was delicious and there generally was a great atmosphere.
I had so much fun during this cooking class. They will take us to the market and explain different ingredients to us and walk us through the cooking steps throughout the class. And they have their own little farm for you to pick your ingredients. It was fantastic.
Despite my concern after only booking 36h in advanced, the car arrived at 9:05 and promptly whisked us away to the market. There, we were treated to a wonderful sampling of local fruits and small breakfast treats. After a short drive to the farm, we picked some fresh ingredients for our dishes. All the instructions were informative and the lesson plan was well paced. My partner and I each chose 5 dishes, so we could try everything. Our food turned out so delicious and we were treated to a wonderful surprise of durian with sticky rice. Would highly recommend!
Cooking woth Ploy was great! She was super nice and a great teacher. The food was amazing and so fresh! Very recomended.
The team very fun to work with and we learned lots about the different types of herbs and spices used in Thai cooking. I would recommend this class to all my friends
This was a fantastic experience. Ploy is the teacher, and she is an absolute gem of a person. The food was amazing, I wish I had 2 stomachs and a suitcase big enough to bring her home to my kitchen. Thank you so much Boyd and Landa
We had an amazing time with Ploy at Baan home cooking school. We was picked up from our hotel and taken to the market and then to her beautiful outdoor kitchen. Picked out ouringredients
We absolutely Loved it. First to experience the local market. We were told something about different fruits and vegetables. Then we went to the Baan Farm. There we harvest some vegetables and fed the fish. It is a really beautiful Farm. The cooking part was really fun, everybody cooked five differnet dishes and one curry paste. The Taste of the Food was absolutely amazing. By far the best Food i ever had. Thank you so much for this experience!
Run by a group of young, fun-loving friends, Baan Farm Thai Cooking was one of my favorite activities in Chiang Mai. We spent the class laughing and dancing while cooking amazing food. Make sure you come hungry and with an open heart and you will leave stuffed and with new friends. PS I am a vegan and and it was no problem at all to make substitutions as needed. So it is vegan/veg friendly.
This cooking class was one of the best experiences i had in Chiang Mai. The farm is very nice and the people are so lovely and helpful. I learned very much about the herbs and vegetables that they have in their one garden. The market tour was very interesting as well. I think about doing one more cooking class in baan farm thai cooking school!
Very enjoyable afternoon. Thanks!
People were charming andknowledgeable. The food I made was delicious.
Great class, great instructor, great price. Definitely going to try the recipes again when we get home.
The class is excellent. Mai Makes cooking fun. It was one the better excursions in Chiang Mai. I highly recommend this class.
We decided to do this cooking class on a whim, and I’m so happy we did! Starting by walking around a local market and learning about the food we were going to cook with was amazing. The farm is beautiful and the cooking area is in an open air kitchen over a little pond, making it so picturesque. The food was absolutely amazing and fresh - being able to pick the ingredients from the garden was a huge plus. Everyone at Baan Farm was super welcoming - I would definitely go back!
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was great and we’ll definitely be making some of these dishes at home. I would not recommend it for people with multiple dietary restrictions or allergies.
After being picked up at our hostel we went to explore a local food market. Most of the groceries we actually got to handpick ourselves at the Baan farm, so all the ingredients were super fresh! The cooking was done at a good pace and with clear instructions and in the end we had made 5 very tasty dishes. A special thanks to the amazing Baan Farm staff for making this a memorable experience!
Small class size. Great one on one instruction. Would highly recommend !
Very friendly, no rushing, explaining everything. Young and professional staff!
Went with another couple and had a great time cooking together and made so much food had to take some to go
I took this Thai cooking lesson in Chiang Mai with my 11-year daughter and had such a good time. Our teacher was perfect from the time she picked us up in town. We selected our 5 meals, visited the market and then went to the farm. The cooking class was perfectly adapted to my daughter. The place was nice, open on a large garden. Recipes were well explained. We shared our class with 2 other girls from HK we enjoyed chatting with. Well a very good afternoon!
A fun and informative cooking class on a tranquil farm. Perfect day.
One of the best cooking classes you will ever be a part of it. Our lovely hosts Pauly and May were awesome. They were funny, enthusiastic, and great teachers. We went to the local market and learned about the different types of fruits and vegetables that are popular in Thailand. It was definitely helpful to have someone teach us about the wonderful herbs used in our curries and stir fried dishes. The cooking class is located on their farm and we picked out fresh vegetables from their garden. They helped us with every step in the cooking process and everyone's food turned out to be excellent. My group loved the class and would definitely recommend this class to anyone wanting to have a good time while making/eating deliciousThai food.
I joined the class , and I found out I was the only one in that afternoon class. So it was like a private lesson. They are all kind and nice, passionate for teaching cooking. We had nice conversation. I asked any questions about ingredients and Thai culture. I am very satisfied with the quality and the price of the class. Highly recommended !
This is a first class operation run by beautiful people. Enjoy a guided tour of a local market and pick your own produce from the Baan Farm for your meal. Come hungry! You don't be disappointed!
Really enjoyed the class!
It’s totally worth of any penny
We had such a great time, only three of us at rhe class, we had enough time to cook 5 meals and to enjoy in them, there was so much food we took leftovers home for dinner. It was easy and fun way to try cooking thai food
This was the best experience I have had in Thailand so far. I could not stop smiling the entire time. The teachers were really knowledgable and allowed us to try lots of local food at the market. We then went back to the farm, which was bsautiful, to pick all of the vegetables and herbs. Then we got to make five incredible dishes! Highly highly recommend!
One of the best days in Thailand
Lovely host (thanks and we enjoyed the time indeed!) Beautiful farm Cool music Local market tour Authentic Thai food 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Very entertaining, Relaxing.
We had a fantastic time and would recommend this trip to anyone who wants a fun relaxing way to spend a half day. Leaned a lot and made some great food.
Great teacher, beautiful environment. Delicious food, mainly from their garden 👌🏼
Wonderful intro to Thai cooking. Very friendly and a great value
The people, location and food is amazing! I really enjoyed the market tour as well. It was interesting to see where the local people shop and what's available to them. So much fresh fruit and produce.
Learned so much and armed with recipes, will be able to make it at home
We all loved cooking with Pauline and May. The market tour was fun, picking our own veggies at the farm was amazing, and most importantly they are amazing teachers. Preparing everything was way easier than we expected, the food was absolutely delicious as rated not only by the chefs but also the entire family who joined them for dinner (4 cooked for 11). (They were also able to accommodate our family member with a shellfish allergy!) Not only that, they sent us the recipes for everything we made the next day –now we can make Thai food at home. Thank you so much!
We totally recommend this cooking class! It was a great experience. We learned a lot about all different kinds of vegetables and herbs and how to cook with them. All dishes were absolutely tasty. Considering I am a vegetarian, they showed me multiple vegetarian options. The farm is also a very lovely place outside in the nature
Thanks for an excellent cooking class, we were very well looked after, and the location is beautiful. Comfy transport in an A/C car, informative market tour and relatively easy instructions while cooking. Food was delicious!
Really fun class and teachers/owners very positive attitude/ very friendly people. Enjoyed every minute of the class 😋
We had our favorite day in all of Thailand spending the afternoon with our wonderful hosts at Baan Farm. May picked us up at our hotel and brought us to a local market to give us a personal tour and show us all the unique foods, and to try some interesting fruits and vegetables that we would be using in our cooking class. We then drove to her friend's family farm which was beautiful and the cooking class was held in a great space right over the water. We picked our own vegetables and herbs from the garden just outside. The two hosts were so friendly and informative. We had hands down the best food in all of Thailand at this class because everything was so fresh. We had a 5 course meal and could choose anything we wanted to cook. We made the curries by hand as well, and everything we cooked ourselves tasted unbelievable. Overall highly recommend, wonderful experience.
Our dishes tasted very well after a very useful lesson, with great ingredients and full of energy staff
Had a great day of picking fresh produce, then cooking LOTS of delicious food! Great way to try your hand at new dishes and learn how to cook Thai food while also eating a lot!
The food was delicious and the chefs were incredibly helpful and easy to learn from. Perfect amount of time. Loved the local market and the farm tour. So happy we chose this one!!!
It was an amazing experience, it exceeded our expectations. The pickup at the hotel was on time an very polite, she is one of the owners. She took us to the market and there we tried all kind of new fruits and vegetables. Then we went to the farm where the other owner was waiting for us with all the tings ready. The farm is an amazing place with its own pond, organic garden and lovely installations. Each one of us (two adults, two teenagers) cooked five dishes and had a wonderful meal. Definitely a five star experience from beginning to end.
We really enjoyed our cooking class. It was a good opportunity to discover the Thai cuisine and to taste a typical homemade meal. We finally prepared ten meals, five each, and everything was delicious. We also could have a full recipes book of the farm.
Truly a great experience. They went above and beyond. We picked fresh ingredients from their farm to use in our dishes. Between my husband and I, we made 10 different dishes - all delicious.
I have tried cooking classes in other countries before and I like how in here, we each got our own cooking stove and had lots of time cooking and preparing food ingredients from scratch. The market tour and organic farm picking were pluses and teachers were all fluent in English. Thanks for the memorable time here, definitely worth recommending.
Very nice experience! The school is amazing
Small groups. Individual Market tour. Great choice of meals. Young, funny and friendly staff, even dropped us off at the Airport afterwards. Highly professional timing. We are very glad that we've chosen baan farm thai cooking school! Definetly worth the money.
We enjoyed an awesome afternoon with Pori and Kam. They really went out of their way to provide helpful information and make us comfortable. Love them! Unfortunately, we didn’t become Thai chefs but did learn a deeper appreciation of Thai cuisine.
She picked us up at our hotel, we went to the market and she showed us all kinds of ingredients which inevitably helped us out on the rest of our trip, after picking up a few ingredients we went back to the farm. At the farm you pick your own ingredients from her garden, and cook what dishes you wanted to make. The land was beautiful, her and her family were amazing she's extremely nice and funny... you cook a 5 course meal and it's all the freshest ingredients. It was truly an amazing experience.
I liked that it was out on a farm and was a nice setting above the little lake with lots of fish! The teacher was really good and cute too!
Des essen ist super!!! Und die, die es veranstalten sind richtig freundlich...
Just a big thank you to all at the cookery school. I had a great time learning the recipes, a lot of care taken in giving instructions step by step. The tour of the market and herb garden really added to the experience. Highly recommended.
The staff were very lovely, attentive and funny. The day was 100% worth it and we are so glad we picked Baan farm.
May and her friends were very friendly. Class takes place in an organic farm. It was nice to learn about the vegetables and handpick the ones we needed. Having a choice about what to cook and small group were the other great advantages. Highly recommended!
This was an absolutely awesome cooking class! The girls that run it are so accommodating, helpful and funny. We got to make 5 of our own dishes that were absolutely delicious. The farm and cooking school is super beautiful, such a nice place to spend the afternoon. Thank you for a wonderful time! :)
Teachers were really nice and funny, good food, cool atmosphere with the group. I spend a really cool day. Don't eat before, simple advice :).
We enjoyed the cooking class very much, May did well and we even learnt a little bit of a Thai song! :-) All in all a unique experience!
When I was picked up at my hotel I was giving a list of meal to chose from to prepare. That was a very nice surprise. Most other places they just have a fixed menu to cook. Both instructors were very professional and friendly. It was a great experience and I highly recommend this cooking class
Todo muy bien, nos recogieron en el hotel, nos llevaron al mercado y nos explicaron y dieron a probar distintos productos. Después fuimos a una granja muy agradable y allí cocinamos. Todo según lo que esperábamos. Repetiríamos!
My partner and I completed this morning cooking class and we both found it fabulous! Having booked the class early hours in the morning on the 6th of August, they sent someone to pick us up from our hotel at 9. When they picked us up they took us to a local market were we were able to explore different types of herbs, fruits and vegetables. We were also able to try some! After the market we were then estcourted to their farm and picked some more herbs for our cooking session. Everyone who we encountered and cooked with had a great sense of humour, which just added to the day! The food which we cooked was delicious and I can't wait to follow the recipes when I get home! Thanks for the great experience!
This was the first time I booked a cooking class through cookly and it was really amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Phoy and Meme picked me up at my hotel at a promised time and they took us to a local market where I saw different ingredients that I didn't know about before. Then, we tried some fruits (they were delicious) and headed off to their farm to begin our cooking class. It was meant to be 5 hours but it went so quickly as we talked, laughed, cooked, and ate. The instructions are easy enough to try it when I go back home and Meme sent us recipes as well. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone - whether you are an couple, have children, haven't any knowledge about cooking - you will enjoy it! I also left a review on their facebook page (Baan farm Thai cooking class) so refer to their page for more photos and reviews from others as well. I also want to thank the teachers at the cooking class as well as Phoy and Meme for the amazing time and their welcoming atmosphere.
Our day started off at the market, where we were able to try all kinds of fruits and were informed in detail about vegetables and other ingredients we would be using. We then made FIVE meals (choosing from a list for each dish). The food was spectacular, but that wasn't even the best part. Our hosts were by far the funniest people we met in all of Thailand. Their humor made our experience all the better. Would highly recommend!
