Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

Professional, clean, informative and to the point. My husband, daughter and I learned a lot and had the best time at Thai Orchid's cooking class with A and her husband. We did the one day class and couldn't have asked for a better experience. They offer a friendly and super clean environment and not only you cook delicious meals from... More

Had a great time with the class today. A and Kong are the nicest people ever. From booking, pick-up and to the very end, the organization and timing, was perfect. Very accommodating and attentive to your needs and level/pace with cooking experience. Menu was simple and the food was delicious. Market trip was very informative. Carry some baht with you... More

This is a must do in Chiang Mai! Chef/Owner Kong was absolutely amazing! He spoke very thorough English. Picked us up on time. We had a variety of choices to chose from when cooking. Kong explained step by step and were really easy to follow. The food was delicious and very simple and easy to make. As part of the... More

Spent half a day with 'A' and the Thai Orchid team learning to cook Thai Style in January 2017. From responding to emails, collection from our hotel and then a fabulous morning cooking & at the market we had a great time. My wife doesn't really cook yet she was enthused because of the structured and organised way everything was... More

A is extremely enthusiastic, and a great teacher - I'm super excited to try this at home now (with the full cookbook they give you). The market trip was a blast, we learned so much about the food which would've otherwise remained a mystery. Just email her a few days in advance to get a reservation, and don't eat before... More

A was great. She picked us up and dropped us right to our hotel. Everything well explained, very clean, very organised and food tasted fab. Well worth the money. Received a cookbook at the end with lots of recipes! Local market tour was a great addition!

My wife Betsy and I had a great day cooking 5 delicious dishes. We really appreciated that we were able to personalize our menus and cook different dishes, so we could try an array of foods. This was different from other places that have pre-set menus for all participants. A was a great instructor. She also brought us to the... More

Just finished up our cooking class at Thai Orchid. What a great experience! I'm not a great cook and don't have a ton of experience in the kitchen so it's no surprise that I learned a lot. I found the food, lessons, and trip to the market to be the perfect combination of activities. You will not leave here hungry.... More

I very much enjoyed my visit and am glad I booked the full day, mostly because I got to make the Tom Yum soup, which isn't nearly as difficult as I had thought it would be. A and Kong make the day very stress-free and educational. All the instruction and recipes are geared toward helping novices cook Thai food at... More

I really can't recommend this highly enough! Our host, "A" (not sure if that's how you actually spell it but that's how it sounds) was super friendly, super knowledgeable and just one helluva cook. For 900 bhat you get to spend 4+ hours cooking (and eating!) spring rolls, curry, pad thai, and mango sticky rice (those were my choices anyway)....... More
