"I attended Baan Thai Cookery School after living in Chiang Mai for a year. It was a wonderful experience learning how to make some authentic Thai dishes. I only got to attend for one day but I was very impressed and hope to visit again and bring friends along in the future! "
"I went with two friends to Baan Thai Cookery School. I had been to a cooking course before in Chiang Mai but Baan Thai was so much better. It was easy and fantastic. I have only been home for less than a week and have already cooked one of the recipes. Thank you it was a highlight of my trip."

"My husband I took a class in Feb. 2010 and thought it was a great experience. We enjoyed the market tour, cooking new reipes and meeting travelers from around the world. We just made the Chiang Mai Noodles at home in our apartment in NYC and the dish was a success!

I´ve been in your cooking class at March 3th, back home at March 9th and already started thai cooking at home!
Great, really cooked excellend (well guess: your guys still the best).
Your Thai Coocery School was one of the highlights at my vacation in Thailand and I really recommend your Classes!
Wish you a great time cooking and meet some people all around the world.
i did the course in september and i loved it! did some cooking courses in cambodia and vietnam as well during my travels, but the course at baan thai was certainly the best course! i love how you take pictures and put them on your site, and also that you hand out actual colour printed cook books! other schools could take an example from you!
i wish you good business and thank you!"
"I enjoyed the experience of the school, the staff, and the monsoon (!), as well as the food we tasted. Unfortunately, the cookbook has at least one serious error. In the recipe for the mango and sticky rice, the proportions are way,way off. The instructions say 1 liter of coconut milk, probably it should be one cup. The result is a disgusting rice soup which is sad as the ingredients are fairly expensive (just finding sticky rice was an experience). The sweet and sour recipe should add the tomatoes at the very last or they get too limp and tasteless. Also, for a beginning cook, which fortunately I am not, instructions to cut the chicken into match size slivers would be helpful. It was a fun experience otherwise and receiving a cookbook was a treat."
From: Rita Schaefer
"Thanks a million for the great cooking experience in your school. We had a really fun and enjoyable time and look forward to trying out some of the delish dishes when we get back home!

It has been almost 5 months since that enjoyable day learning to cook at Baan Thai. It was a very in depth course, and truly 100% authentic Thai. The food was great and we kept eating all day! We didn't even need dinner afterwards! I will recommend Baan Thai to people who wants to experience a day of ordinary Thai living. Thank you very much! All the best to all of you.

"I just wanted to thank you for a great time at your cooking school and home. I was on limited time and able to learn to cook some of my favorite Thai dishes and still make it to the airport on time. I have just finished making my first batch of som tam and it came out pretty good. I was able to find authentic ingredients and cooking utensils at my local China town so everything worked out great for me. Thanks again and good luck. "
My husband Tim and I did your course on New Years Day and it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! Boom was an excellent teacher, very knowledgable and funny, and was assisted by 'eye' who was also very helpful. (I was very grateful to her when she finished chopping my thai ginger for me!!) We have some lovely photos of the day and it was great to spend the day in a traditional thai house learning to cook such delicious food. Thank you all, we would love to come back.
