About The Full Day Cooking Class At Thai Farm Cooking School

The Thai Farm Cooking School is roughly 17 kilometers outside of the city, so enjoy a scenic ride after being picked up from your hotel in Chiang Mai. On the way to the cooking school, visit the local Ruamchok Market and see what kinds of fruit and vegetables are for sale at a typical outdoor produce market in Thailand.

Once you arrive at the cooking school and organic farm, take a tour the rows of fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Enjoy picking some of the fresh ingredients straight from the garden that will be used to cook your very own homemade meal!

Afterward, you’ll be guided to the cooking area in a well-equipped kitchen. Each person will have his/her own cooking station and will be provided with an apron and all the necessary tools and cutlery to prepare the food. This is where the magic happens! Whether this is your first time cooking or you’ve done it before, everyone will have fun learning the secrets of making a home-cooked Thai meal.

Everyone will learn how to make Thailand’s famous sticky rice. Then, choose one of the following Thai soups to make: hot and sour tom yum with shrimp, creamy tom kha with chicken, or a Thai vegetable soup. Next, you’ll learn how to make one of three kinds of curry pastes by pounding together herbs and spices with a mortar and pestle: red curry, yellow curry, or green curry. Afterward, you’ll make a chicken curry dish with your paste.

Depending on which day you sign up for the class, there are different options for the remaining noodle, stir-fry, and dessert courses. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday learn how to cook Spring Rolls, Chicken with Cashew Nuts, and Mango with Sticky Rice. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday learn how to make Pad Thai, Chicken with Basil, as well as Bananas in Coconut Milk.

Finally, once everyone has finished preparing their Thai dishes, enjoy eating your meal on a terrace that overlooks a fishpond, the organic farm, and the mountains in the distance. Remember your Thai cooking experience with a free recipe book and then relax on the ride back to your hotel in Chiang Mai.
