At Basil Cookery School, you get to do all the cooking. Don’t worry, even if you have never done a cooking class before, we make Thai cooking easy.Unlike other cookery schools that held 10-20 people per one class we limit our class to only 1-6 people so you can get the plenty of time learning with us. Ask any question you want while we're enjoy cooking together. As we take you step by step through the recipes, our class will give you confidence and we guarantee that you will be able to eat your very first delicious Thai dish. We pride ourselves on quality, from the freshest ingredients, high quality cooking utensils, clean and clear kitchens, to our customer service.

My girflriend and I booked a lesson in Basil cookery school a couple of weeks ago and we are very happy we did so. It was a last minute booking - the night before the lesson and they accepted us without deposit or advanced payment; they were very felxible and responsive. They picked us up on time at the hotel....

Teacher was great, good English and funny jokes, young and very flexible! The only remarks I d have would be on the floor insufficient cleanness.. We had to walk barefoot in and... More

We had a blast, learned a lot, and got to eat some great food (that we cooked ourselves, of course). Our instructor spoke great English and was really fun. She even told us a lot about the Thai culture, not just the food. They were also very easy to work with our vegan diet.

We went to Basil cookery school after looking at numerous leaflets for schools in and around Chiang Mai. Chose this one because of the small classes (maximum 8), number of dishes we would cook and it was the only leaflet that gave a description of the choices on offer. Didn't regret our decision. It was a really enjoyable experience, and... More

I went there with my partner as she wanted to do it more than me, to be honest. However, how wrong I was. Utterly brilliant. I am not a chef. At all. But under Apple's tutelage I felt like a master. The fact that you get hotel pick up and drop off, as well as a really useful recipe book... More

Myself and my girlfriend booked the evening course and were taken firstly to the market to be introduced to main ingredients. We were then driven to the cookery school and taken step by step through our six dishes. Apple (our tutor) was really cool and made sure we had a enjoyable time. We would highly recommend this as an introduction... More

We did this on our last night in Chiang Mai and it was one of my favorite parts of the trip. The pickup was prompt and our trip to the market was informative and fun. Our guide, Pim, was funny, knowledgeable and a bit cheeky at times but always very helpful! We cooked and ate a TON of food (more... More

Loved Basil Cookery School! I went with my parents and husband, and we all had a great time. Our guide was awesome, and we had so much fun. It was a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. The food that we cooked was really good- tasty and fresh! It was enjoyable going to the market. She took the time to explain every... More

We enjoyed a full day Thai course with our family of 5 (3 teenage kids). Apple was our instructor and she taught us so much. Everything was really well organised and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend this course.

I had so much fun during my 1st cooking class at another place, I decided to take another class and chose Basil Cooker School for the good reviews and close location from my hotel. There is only one class at a time and max 8 people per class. Pim was a great instructor. I liked the homey feel of the... More
