If you have any interest in Thai food (eating or cooking), just go. You learn a bit about the marketplace, the local economy, relaxation Thai style, a lot about food and prep. If you've ever wondered how close your local Thai restaurants pad Thai is or your own, Sammy will solve that for, you definitely won't order it from Noodles... More

Hands down the best class I've attended and was definitely a highlight for our trip. Sammy and his wife were fantastic - they were super hilarious and taught us how to make the tastiest dishes. Their property is breathtaking and hands down has the coolest toilet I've ever used !!

A visit to Sammy's is a great way to spend a day in Chiang Mai. After visiting a market on the way to the farm, you get straight into learning Thai cooking. After making 5 separate courses you emerge a more knowledgeable person - who knew that Thai stir fry and spring rolls could be so easy!! The cooking instruction... More

My husband and I attended the cooking class at Sammy's the other night and LOVED it. I'm normally a TERRIBLE cook- but did very well if I do say so myself. The staff makes it all very easy- and teaches you about the different ingredients. I don't think that I will ever look at fish sauce the same way though....

Sammy and his family thaught us how to cook several traditional thai dishes. There's 5 courses and about 3-4 choices for every course. The day starts at a big market. Sammy and his family speak English very well and they know everything about thai food. Nice detail: they also knew lots of variations to cook similar meals with ingredients which... More

What a day ;). Sammy's Organic Thai Cooking class. Picked up from our hotel and visited the local market where Sammy explained many cool facts and gave us some time there. We didn't need to buy much as most of what we needed was all grown on Sammy's own farm. We drove to the farm where we got a tour.... More

Good times hanging with Sammy on his farm. Started off the day at a local market then headed out to the farm - Beautiful grounds/ cool style and well kept. Loved learning about Thai ingredients and getting hands dirty cooking. Instruction was great. Hammock nap after first round of cooking then back to it! Looking forward to cooking for friends...

In my opinion it was just not a cooking class and a brake that was way too long. You could've done everything in a half day course which would have been 500 baht cheaper! The hole day (at least when Sammy was around) he only pointed out his toilets and we should recommend him on TripAdvisor. The location is beautiful... More

What a great idea we had when we booked a day with Sammy. The pick up, the pit stop at the market, the teaching, the food, the attitude, the place, the chill time between dishes on hammocks, the family, the farm are really worth my 5 ⭐️. Thank you for your professionalism and spirit. We will share your cooking with... More
