This was an amazing experience on our trip to Thailand. Even under Covid-Circumstances we had a wonderful and safe cooking course. Benny picked us up at the Hotel and took us to a market that is natural based and almost unknown for tourist. We were the only foreign people there. We had an exceptional introduction into plant based ingredients that we later used for cooking and also got teached about thai products that we can find in our home country (germany).

Next step was a transfere to her house and garden where she showed us everything growing there by tasting leaves and fruits. And then we started cooking our 5 meal-menue that we could chose individually for each person after booking the course online. Although we did not do so - everyone of us could have cooked 5 different meals. That is a big workload for Benny, but she takes it well. After explaining every step we cooked by ourselfs under her professional eyes.

With a relaxing zone in the garden aside a rice field there was also enough time to have a break inbetween. So there was absolutely no feeling of getting stressed or mainly commercial interest. Benny and her team (who miraculously cleaned all dishes in time) made us feel friends being with friends all the time.

This experience so far was one of our most intense throughout our whole Thailand trip. So we can recommend to everyone without limitation.

Coffe, tea and water is included limitless. Benny took her time to answer all our questions.

Benny’s home cooking course is so good I did it twice! Hands-down the best cooking class I have ever been to. Firstly, she picks you up from your accommodation and takes the group (max 8 people) to the local market. There she takes the group round and shows you lots of local foods you might not have seen/tried before and happily buys some for everyone to try.

The class is held back at her family home with individual stations set up for everyone. The best thing about this class is everyone gets to choose their own menu. A soup, a starter, a noodle dish, a curry and a dessert. And you can choose different proteins for each dish. The class is not rushed at all. Benny and Nan (AKA kitchen fairy) make you feel welcome and are so much fun to be around!

If you’re in Chiang Mai you have to do this class!

Loved the whole experience! Benny has such a personal approach and is so good at creating a fun and pleasant atmosphere. The dishes we cooked tasted delicious, we got to each choose different ones and cook them individually, which is so rare! Some of the best tasting food, lovely home garden setting, fresh ingredients from the garden! Very informative and hands on class. Would 100% recommend!

A really well paced day of learning, cooking, relaxing, and fun! Benny really shows off her experience with Thai cooking classes in the way she interacts with you throughout the day. She loves to chat or answer questions, making it a very personal experience even in a group setting. Don't forget about the Kitchen Fairy and the Mom! They make a great team. Benny has lots of little tips and tricks for beginners and even some for more experienced cooks! Go check her out!

Benny's cooking class was an amazing opportunity to dive into the spices and flavors of Thailand. I love cooking, have done many thai dishes before, and wanted to increase my skills and awareness of other dishes.
I was lucky enough to be the only person in my class, and wow, the attention and exchange of information was everything I wanted and more. Out of all of the cooking class opportunities, I highly recommend Benny!

Benny’s Home Cooking was the best cooking class I’ve ever taken. Benny’s tour of the market brought everyone in the group of their shells and really cemented the fun atmosphere for the day. I especially appreciated being able see the produce before it was prepped for cooking.

Benny knows her way around the kitchen and was able to work with all eight of us, none of whom have the same cooking experience, making sure everyone not only completed their dishes but was able to understand the process.

I’ve been to other cooking classes since Benny’s and although I’ve enjoyed them, Benny’s still stands out. I can’t wait to try her recipes when I get home.

I truly cannot say enough good things about the cooking class at Benny's. If you are trying to search for the best one around please look no further and just believe this is it! I spent days reading reviews and trying to figure it out and I'm so glad I settled with Benny. She brings you to her home which has an onsite garden full of spices and vegetables. She has the outdoor set up under like a tropical kitchen that should be on a cooking show! Very professional but also very much like a traditional Thai kitchen. The initial trip to the market is wonderful as she explains so many things and you get to sample tasty foods. Once you get to her house you start cooking at a pace that works for you. She explains everything so simply that anyone can follow along. I am far from a skilled cook and I was able to enjoy it and make great tasting food! Everything is made entirely from scratch using fresh organic fruits, vegetables grains, and proteins. Benny has her family helping her out so a lot of the behind-the-scene details are done for you, so it is just cook and eat, cook and eat, and repeat all day! You can buy her seasoning packets to take home and you are provided a beautiful cookbook with all the recipes inclused at no extra charge. I cannot stress enough how professional, friendly, and tasty this experience was!! You will not be disappointed.

I had the best time with Benny and Nan! I was lucky enough to have a 1 on 1 class on the day I booked and Benny and Nan were so accommodating. We started the day at the market where Benny told me about some Chiang Mai delicacies and we talked about some of the staple Thai herbs and products. It was an informative and interesting start to the day.

After, we headed to Benny’s home where she had a great set up on her property. We looked around her organic garden and picked some herbs we were going to use during the day and then we bag an the cooking! There was a great choice of dishes and Benny’s instruction was clear and we had a lovely time cooking and taking photos. The dishes were all delicious! And there was plenty of chance to rest between courses and have a drink of water.

Benny and Nan showed such kindness and I cannot recommend the class enough! Thank you and I will be back!

We did a cooking class with Benny and LOVED it! Benny is so charismatic and has a great sense of humor. We felt instantly comfortable and welcomed by her. The group was just the 8 of us which worked perfectly and we met some really lovely people. The food we cooked was delicious and Benny made everything seem so easy but full of flavour! We also really enjoyed the market in the morning because we got to learn about the random street style food and different items used in thai cooking. We got a take home recipe book which we used the first week being back in australia. Thanks for having us Benny. We would highly recommend this class!

This is a really well organised, informative and personal cooking class. Benny and Nan have a wealth of experience between them and it shows. They're also very easy to get along with and keen to make it as enjoyable a day as they can.
The trip to a market as part of the class is great, and using fresh ingredients from Benny's family's garden was a big bonus for me. The garden is also a fantastic space in which to host a class.
Also worth noting that they are very careful around distancing and sanitising throughout the day.
