Learning to cook Thai-Style

Looking for a perfect way to spend a rainy day in Chiang Mai?

Take a cooking class.

From Karen - Chiang Mai


Dana and I signed up for a class at Taste From Heaven, an all-vegetarian restaurant in Chiang Mai that also offers cooking classes. The restaurant donates some of its proceeds to the Elephant Nature Park.

Since we were the first people to sign up for the Saturday class, we were able to choose 9 dishes that we wanted to learn. It turned out that we were the only people in the class, so Dana and I got a private 4-hour Thai cooking lesson! An amazing experience.

1. Fresh Spring Rolls with Garlic Dipping Sauce
