Why take this class?
This cooking class is a unique experience; we are not a restaurant or a street stall. This experience lets you see the preparation of the food from scratch, eat the delicious meals, talk with the chefs as they help you prepare your own food, then later, simply chat as a “Lanna family”.
How local is it?
Authentically Local! Experience the lives of the traditional local ‘Lanna’ people, get involved with their culture and food, either at dinner or lunchtime. There are many things to be learned & shared!
What makes it unique?
Lanna food (which is uniquely different from Thai food), local transportation, beautiful countryside environment and local chefs.
- Pick-up by your host “Aoy.” She will then take you to visit the local market and you will continue to her house by local transport, also know as “Rod Song Taew”, “Motor-Tricycle” or “Rod Phong.”
- You will then visit the local village and organic farm.
- We will cook Lanna food together, just like a family, talking & sharing experiences with Aoy & her family.
- (The food will be Northern Thai food or Lanna food, cooked in a charcoal stove.)
- We will then have a meal together as locals do.
- The house is located in the countryside, surrounded by rice fields, fruit orchards and an organic farm that will put you in touch with real locals. See how locals live, share their culture and eat together with them.
