We had the best time with Ae and her family cooking local Northern Thai dishes. Everything felt so personal and wonderful. Ae's home and gardens were beautiful. We were so excited to be the first class after lockdown! Looking forward to visiting again when we are next in Chiang Mai! I couldn't recommend this more highly 🙂

I recommend this class for everyone who is interested in Thai cooking. Hosts were very lovely family and knowledgeable for the cooking. I could learn not only cooking but also Thai culture from them. And I recognized that fresh ingredients from their garden make a big differences for the taste. We made 4 dishes and they wrapped very nicely for to go as well.

My friend and I had a wonderful experience in Ae and Mo's class. We had the opportunity to walk through the garden and pick some fresh veg for the meal. The cooking itself was very well organized, and it was lovely to enjoy our appetizers and main courses with the other guest in our group. Ae and Mo's home/kitchen is unique space and they made us feel so welcome. We would highly recommend to anyone in Chiang Mai seeking a unique experience outside the standard tourist tracks.
