When you are in Chiang Mai and you have a day to spare, why not take a class in Thai cooking. Thai cuisine is worldwide known and to learn the sills and secret tricks and tips will make you a Thai masterchef in a day. Impress yourself and all the people at home by fulfilling a 1 day cooking course. 

The Beginner Courses

Duration : 10.00 – 16.00 (Daily)

There are 5 different courses which are taught beginning at 10:00am until approximatey 16:00pn every day. Each course has been designed to be given once per day, so that the students will have plenty of time to learn all the main techniques for cooking Thai food no matter which course they choose to attend. If they are taking more than a one-day course, then they will receive more hands on practice and learn additional techniques and skils for cooking Thai food from Master Chef Sompon Nabnian.

The classes are appropriate for people who have some experience with Thai cooking and also for complete beginners. The menus have been especially formulated to teach about the many different cooking techniques used in cooking Thai food. For those who require alternative ingredients for vegetarian or special diets, we will provide them when requested.

All the courses begin with a morning activity such as shopping at the market, an introduction to Thai ingredients, paste making or vegetable carving. After the morning activity then the clients will cook 4 dishes. Each dish will be demonstrated by Chef Sompon or highly qulaified instructors who all speak excellent English.

Our knowlefeable staff will also give some unique tips about alternative cooking methods and substitutes throughout the demonstrations. The students will then cook each dish themselves and the instructors will be on hand to help and guide them through the process with step-by-step instructions.

Once the students have completed 4 dishes in the morning, they will break for lunch to relax to eat the fruits of thier hard work. After lunch they will make 2 more dishes and then eat once again. Expect to be full by the end of the day!!!
