We were the first school to be established in Chiang Mai (in 1993) and we have had more experience of teaching Thai cooking than anybody else.
We continually up-grade and improve our courses and facilities.
Our cook book that comes with the courses is of the highest quality. Every recipe is accompanied by a full colour photograph and each recipe has been written by Sompon. Our cook book is published in Bangkok.
Sompon has spent time in England so that his English is of a very high standard. These days he spends more time speaking English than Thai!
The facilities that we have are second to none. Everybody has their own gas ring and work surface so that under no circumstances will you ever have to share and waste time waiting around for your turn to cook.
Having spent time cooking Thai food in England, Sompon has first-hand experience of cooking Thai food abroad. He knows what ingredients are available and what can be used as substitutes. He makes annual trips abroad which enables him to continually be able to up-date his information. Over the years of teaching he has also obtained knowledge of what is available in many, many cities and countries around the world.
We are the only cooking school in Chiang Mai to be recommended in all major guide books such as Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Let's Go, Frommers, Stefan Loose and many others. You cannot buy your way into these guide books. Entries are made on recommendations from past students and that is the only way to get in.
