Chiang Mai Cooking School at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai

Discover the secrets of Thai cuisine at the Cooking School at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai and learn how to recreate the perfect Thai kitchen back home.

Whether it’s learning to make the perfect green curry or refining a favourite spicy Northern Thai dish, food aficionados have long looked to the Cooking School at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai to discover the secrets behind the cuisine the Resort showcases. Although the key to serving up authentic Thai cuisine is primarily about using the freshest ingredients available, the utensils used for cooking in this region—such as typical stone mortars and pestles, solid wooden chopping slabs, and locally made knives and cleavers—are instrumental in making the resulting dishes genuine. For presentation, beautiful Thai handmade celadon ceramics, dishware, cutlery, serving bowls and tablecloths are also traditional to the culture.

The Resort’s Create Your Own Thai Kitchen experience is a fantastic way for true foodies to not only learn to cook Thai food, but to begin a collection of kitchen items that will aid in recreating these dishes at home. It all begins with a trip to the market in the morning to purchase fresh ingredients, herbs and spices needed to create the day’s menu. After returning to the Resort, guests get to work learning the secrets behind the fine art of Thai cooking, particularly the unique flavour combinations that make this region’s food one of the world’s best cuisines.

As an added bonus, Cooking School Instructor Nuttaluck Roswan, also known as Chef Meow, will take guests on a private tour of her favourite spots in Chiang Mai to source the best possible cooking equipment necessary to recreate one’s very own Thai kitchen at home. Chef Meow will reveal all her favourite suppliers, ranging from local market stalls to small family-run shops to hidden outlets that would be impossible to find alone. It’s an exclusive insider tour, only available at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai. And the best part? The Resort team will assist with shipping arrangements, so there’s no need to worry about stuffing that new heavy wooden chopping block in a suitcase.

The Create Your Own Thai Kitchen experience at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai is priced at THB 12,000 per person or THB 20,000 per couple, and is available now at the Cooking School.
