Baan Thai Cookery School Chiang Mai Reviews
Thai cooking at its finest Aug 13, 2011
Baan Thai Cookery School is a Thai cuisine cooking school in the heart of Chiang Mai, Thailand. It is a family run business with loads of teachers, helpers, cooks and everybody involved.
The "foodfilled day" starts off with an on time pick up from your accommodation and gets you to their school. Once arrived groups are formed by chance and I was extremely lucky :)
(wear comfortable clothes, you sit on the ground and literally eat all day long)
As everybody found a spot you can choose 5 dishes (out of 5 groups). Afterward you get a general introduction to the different types of rice used in Asian cuisine and than you are off to the market. (yes they take you to the market where they explain about different foods and ingredients - very interesting)
As soon as you are back to the cooking school the feast begins.
As there are more groups cooking at the same time you get mixed up for the dish you chose but eat with "your" group.
It is amazing how simple and fast most dishes are and be prepared for amazement about your own cooking skills ;)
You also receive a recipe book with all dishes that have been made that day (by everybody - so around 15 dishes) and the explanations are as simple as the food is good.
The price for the morning course (9am-4pm) is around 900baht (30 dollars, 23 euros)and includes everything.
My day at the cooking school can best be described as DELICIOUS and fun.
