Thai food is beloved the world over for its bright and fiery flavors and diverse array of dishes, from coconut milk–based curries and sticky rice to fresh salads and noodle soups. If you want to learn how to create the flavors of northern Thai cuisine, consider taking a cooking course in Chiang Mai. Here’s what you can expect.

  • Learn how to make Thai favorites, from pad thai to tom yum soup, as well as regional specialties, such as khao soi (a coconut-based curry noodle soup) or tam kanoon (jackfruit salad), from a professional instructor at a Thai cooking school.
  • Venture to a local market to learn about the herbs and spices commonly used in Lanna (northern Thai) cuisine.
  • Pluck ripe mangoes, aromatic herbs, and other fresh ingredients from the organic farm or produce garden of a local host before helping them prepare a meal in their own home.
  • Discover the unique flavors and dishes of the Akha indigenous hill tribe, who live in villages in northern Thailand as well as in parts of Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, and southwest China.
  • Learn to use traditional cooking implements, such as earthen clay pots, during your Thai cooking class. Then, sit down to eat your own creations after your Thai cooking experience. 
  • Bring home copies of the recipes so you can cook northern Thai dishes back in your own kitchen.
  • Get tips on what easy-to-find substitutes you can use for ingredients that are not readily available outside of Asia.
