    May Kaidee's Cooking School

    is run by a famous Thai chef and specialises in vegetarian and vegan dishes. The original cooking school started in Bangkok in 1988 and runs simultaneous courses in Chiang Mai and Bangkok daily. May Kaidee's runs two classes a day which includes an introduction and small talk about how to make chilli paste and the use of Thai herbs and spices. Then participants learn how to cook 8 different recipes and taste their dishes. After cooking and eating participants will then get to see a traditional Thai dancing show and are served complimentary mango and sticky rice dessert. The morning and afternoon classes vary slightly with an introduction to raw food desserts in the morning and a focus on cold recipes such as salads in the afternoon.

    The most popular class, Thai cooking, runs two times daily at 9:00 and 14:00 and cost 1,500 THB per person. It is advised to book ahead during high season as the classes are quite popular. May Kaidee's Cooking School also has an express class which is only two hours and includes three dishes and dessert. The express classes cost 1,000 THB and run at 15:00 and 17:00 daily. In Bangkok May Kaidee also offers 5 and 10 day cooking courses for those who really want to dive deep into Thai cuisine, as well as a one day raw food workshop.

    Sammy's Organic Thai Cooking School

    takes place on Sammy's organic farm about 20 minutes away from Chiang Mai. The school is set in a beautiful location and is a great way to get out of the city and see more of Thailand's countryside. Sammy starts by taking participants to a local Thai market to buy ingredients and has in depth knowledge about different herbs, types of rice and coconut milk. This is a good chance to ask about Thai spices and ingredients. Once at Sammy's Organic Thai Cooking School you can choose five different dishes to make (including spring rolls, mango and sticky rice and a choice of curries) and then Sammy will demonstrate and help you cook your own dishes. There is fresh fruit available if you start to feel hungry and at the end of the class you get to feast on what you cooked.

    The cost per person is 1,000 THB and the course lasts from around 9:00 to 16:00 or 17:00 (depending on how many participants there are and how long you spend in the hammock). At the end of the workshop Sammy gives all participants a printed cookbook so that you can go home and cook a whole range of Thai dishes yourself.
