Love Chiang Mai Cooking School is in Hang Dong, a countryside town that is about a 20 minute drive away from Chiang Mai city. Lin is the local expert on Lanna cuisine (Northern Thai food) As a child, she learned her way around the kitchen by helping her mother prepare food and desserts that they sold in the local market. She started her cooking school in 2014 with her passion for cooking and sharing Lanna food.
In the school you will be welcomed by the organic garden and the open-air cooking with the old fashioned style of cooking with charcoal and ancient Thai cooking tools. Your cooking class may include dishes such as Keng Hung Lay (Chiang Mai Curry), Sai Aao (Chiang Mai Sausage), Keng Care (local vegetable and chicken curry), Khao Soi (Chiang Mai Noodle), Tom Som Kai Bai Makham (Hot and Sour Chicken Local Soup with Tamarind Leaf) and Taam Kanoon (Jackfruit Local Salad). You may learn more about how to make fresh coconut milk, fresh rice flour and sticky rice.
Your host will pick you up from your Chiang Mai hotel, then continue to a local market with numerous fruit, vegetable and meat stalls. At the market she will explain how the ingredients that you will later use in your cooking class are used in the Lanna cuisine and she will show you how to choose the ingredients from the market.
After finishing the local market tour, we will head to the cooking school. It's about 20 minutes south of Chiang Mai city. On the way you will pass by the local communities surrounded by rice fields and fruit orchards that will give you a view of how Chiang Mai locals live.
