The Chiang Mai Thai Cookery School was the first cooking school in Northern Thailand and has one of the best reputations. Run by one of Thailand’s most famous chefs, Sompon Nabnian, the school hosts a variety of beginners and advanced cooking classes, and also offers a homestay for those who wish to study over a longer period of time. Chiang Mai Thai Cookery School has been operating over 13 years and is the place to go for chefs and people serious about cooking.
The cooking school has a range of different beginners courses from 'Introduction to Thai Spices', 'Making Thai Curry Pastes' or 'Vegetable Carving'. You can choose to take one or join a few different courses. One course costs 1,450 Baht but if you book more the price becomes cheaper. The advanced courses start at 3,000 Baht and are taught by Sompon himself. All classes include transportation to and from the school, all food and materials, welcome drinks and snacks and a cookbook by Sompon. Gourmet dinner parties by Sompon can also be organised at request.
