Half Day Cooking Class Including Market Tour from Chiang Mai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your Chiang Mai hotel, then travel to a local market to explore the stalls. You’ll learn to choose the best of each ingredient, with the chance to sample some fresh produce along the way—enjoy some free time to wander or shop before continuing to the cooking school.

    Upon arrival, visit the organic kitchen garden where ingredients for the student kitchen are grown. Enjoy access to a cooking station solely for your use, so you’ll be sure to learn every step in the process.

    The grand finale is the meal you’ve cooked: sit down to a full meal with your fellow students. At the end of the cooking class, you’ll be presented with a book of recipes, so you can reproduce what you’ve learned in your home kitchen. This cooking class concludes with a return transfer to your hotel in Chiang Mai.

    Mama Noi’s cooking class is a day in Chiang Mai that I will never forget! I was picked up on time. The market tour was not a tour, rather a quick stop with an explanation of some ingredients you see during the day. It was nice to be able to pick your personal menu for the day.

    I honestly didn't know what to expect, I booked it just for the sake of consuming time. It turned out to be one of my more memorable experiences I've had in Thailand. It was informative, fun and very engaging. Pick up from my hotel lobby was on time then we started off
