Courses at the Thai Orchid Cooking School are based on the philosophy that a meal should be a beautiful thing, made with love and shared with love. The school was started by "A" and her family who have the same dream of sharing their love of Thai cooking with those who desire to learn how to cook delicious Thai food but also to experience the culture and poetry of Thai cuisine.

Hi - are children allowed in the class, if they are 'assisting' their parents? Appreciate they won't be allowed their own workstation if under certain age. We're in chiang mai in April and would love to attend a class here, but wasn't sure if our son would be allowed to attend, he loves helping with cooking at home (he's 6)? Thanks!
