Traditionally, visitors to Thailand looking for a dose of culture come to Chiang Mai (it’s not known as the ‘cultural capital’ of Thailand for nothing). The province boasts more temples than any other in the country, while the Old City wall, crumbling fortresses and variety of traditional markets all provide a reminder of Chiang Mai’s past.
Besides its cultural abundance, many locals in and around the city have maintained their family’s business or trade, some of which require specialized skills and incredible attention to detail to produce high-quality products and crafts. These artisans also include chefs and cooks who are setting up restaurants (or simply doing their best to keep their family’s existing one going), who use only the freshest local ingredients combined with old-age recipes and cooking techniques. If you’re an artisan in Chiang Mai, even the most elaborate of elements are essential to create authenticity.
This journey will take you to explore local ingredients of the north, learn how to cook native dishes, as well as absorb the art of making refined Northern Thai cuisine all over Chiang Mai.
