Morning & Evening Cooking Class:

Which market do we visit in the Morning Class?

We will be visiting the Chaing Mai Gate Market (Bumrung Buri Market), one of Chiang Mai’s oldest, traditional markets.

What should I bring?

Yourself and some enthusiasm to learn is all you need!

What will I be cooking?

In the cooking class you will be preparing 11 dishes, including traditional Thai desserts, soups, curries and appetizers, as well as 3 Akha dishes.

Do I have my own cooking station or do I need to share?

You will have your own cooking station and all the equipment you need, no need to share!

I do not like spicy food, but my friend does, is that a problem?

As you have your own cooking station, everything can be tailored to your specific tastes.

I am vegetarian or vegan...

This is absolutely fine, just inform us as soon as you arrive that you would like to make a veggie version of your dish and we will teach you how to make it just as delicious!

I have a gluten allergy or I'm allergic to nuts...

No Problem, just please inform us of any allergies you have at the beginning of the lesson.

Help, I can't cook but really would like to go!

The class is very easy paced and you will be guided through everything, so no worries if you are just a beginner, you will surely make something just as delicious as the pro’s!

Can I design my own private class?

Yes of course, please call the school for details and more information.

Local Fresh Market Tour:

What should I bring?

Yourself and and an open mind! Keep in mind that you’ll be going on a market tour and the more you bring, the less comfortable you’ll be. We will provide you everything you need (a bag with a bottle of water, umbrella, pen, handbook with information about what you will find and sanitary tissues).
You should bring your camera, though–you might want to capture the moment you eat a silkworm, ant egg or pink egg!

I am vegetarian/vegan, gluten intolerant, have food allergies…

Don’t worry! Just let us know beforehand about your needs and we’ll make sure to point out the foods that could pose a problem for you.

How does the tour actually work?

How does the tour actually work?
The tour is structured in a way for us to get the most out of the experience of visiting a Local Fresh Market. We will begin by meeting up (follow this link for more information about the meeting point) and having a Thai traditional breakfast together. We will then move on to the actual market, where we will visit and explore its different sections! Once we have chosen the food we wanted to try, we will take a walk to the park where we will enjoy the meal all together. Overall, the tour should take around four hours.

Do I have to pay for the food that we try during the tour?

No. All the food we’ll try is included in the cost of the class. You have no limit on what you can try–if you see something you like, just let us know, and we’ll take care of ordering and paying for you.

Do I have to eat all the foods?

You don’t, but we encourage you to at least give them a try! If you decide to do so, you might come across your new favorite snack or dish, and what better context for this than cooked by locals! As they say, you never know until you try.

What happens if it rains?

No problem. We spend most of the tour under the roof of the market, and we provide an umbrella for you in case it rains during times when we walk outside.

If I go on this tour in the morning, how about joining the evening cooking class?

This is a great idea! However, please note that the market tour and the cooking class are separate bookings. If you do the market tour and decide that you want to take the evening cooking class, please talk to your instructor to see if there’s space.

What can I do after this tour ends?

What can I do after this tour ends?
We’ll finish at the Buak Hard Park in the southwest part of the Old City, in a lovely area to walk around in. It’s also close to several temples you can visit, and there is also an excellent massage parlor with reasonable prices within the park.

I’m a little scared to do this tour. Should I still do it?

Absolutely. Our instructors understand that some foods are not familiar and can be a little intimidating, and they’re happy to work with you to find what you might like. But we also encourage you to be adventurous: it’s the spirit of travel!
