A Recent Review of this tour

We had an amazing experience learning to cook Lanna Thai food with Lin! We made curry paste by hand, and learned how to make the best Koey Soi, Chiang Mai sausage, Abb Pia and Chiang Mai curry. What we learned from Lin will now become part of our family cooking traditions. We are excited to get home and see what ingredients we can find to make these dishes again (especially the Koey Soi and Kaeng Hung Lay (Chiang Mai curry)). Spending the day with Lin, her daughter and team of assistants was amazing!
