My boyfriend and I wanted to take a cooking class, but wanted to make sure we weren't in a large class. It was just us two and it was amazing!!! Arm is so sweet and knowledgable. We have been telling everyone we see about him. We went to the local market which is so much better then the tourist trap markets that are out there. We went to his house which had a really nice set up. We got to meet his dad who was taking pictures of us while we were cooking and we saw his garden. We were very happy with what we made also. So much that I ate all of the first dish and didn't share it with my boyfriend or Arm...oops LOL. Great class and I wouldn't have changed anything about it. Thank you Arm!!!!
We were very impressed with Arm’s cooking class. We cook quite a bit at home, and Arm was able to tailor the class so that we covered techniques and dishes we were interested in learning. He kept us thoroughly engaged throughout the day. Everything was very straight forward, and the food tasted great. He also made sure we tried a few food items we had never tried before. Arm is extremely friendly, and his class is a great value. We really couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
I took a private class with the Small House cooking school and was impressed. I travel to Chaing Mai every year or so (for seven years) to improve my Thai cooking and this is the first time I took a class at Small House. Arm was great gave me really good insight into the dishes we made and bent over backwards to fill my strange little requests. If you are traveling to Chaing Mai put Small House on your list of things to do
We found this school on tripadvisor and went because of all the nice reviews. Nobody lied : the chef is friendly and patient, the ingredients are first choice and fresh, you'll have some bonus which are not mentioned ahead (like dessert or fruits you'll like to taste), you'll cook in his charming house in a calm residential area and the prices are very reasonables. Try, you'll love it.

I had a great time and learned a lot from Mr Arm at the cooking class that I signed up! Mr Arm took me to the market and showed me all the items essential to cooking Thai Food. I only had time to learn three dishes (they tasted great!), but will be back on my next trip to learn other types of Thai food! This is was one of the best experiences I had coming to Chiang Mai! Highly recommend it!!!
Is located in the north eastern part of Chiang Mai. In my view point, it's the most clean & well managed market in Chiang Mai. There are beautiful fresh vegetable, fruits, meats, seafood, ready to eat food, dessert and northern Thai food section.
On the South-western side on the market have many vegetable sellers here. Most of vegetable come from Northern area of Thailand.
Although I have a herb & vegetable garden at my home but I still have to buy mushroom, potato, onion, Thai garlic, Thai shallot for ourcooking class.
A straw mushroom เห็ดฟาง Hed-Fang is absolutely delicious with Thai soup.
Sticky rice or glutinous rice ข้าวเหนียว Khao-Neaw is very popular in Northern and North-eastern part of Thailand. We eat sticky rice by hand with barbecue, soup, curry, vegetable stir-fry, meat salad etc.
Next to the rice shop, it's coconut milk กะทิ Ga-Ti shop. We use it a lot in curry. Fresh coconut milk is smell so good. You can also try to squeeze coconut milk by hand at our cooking school.
There are many ready to eat food selling here.
