I’m probably talking out of school here because we’ve only ever been to four cooking classes in our entire lifetime, but if Siam Rice in Chiang Mai, Thailand, isn’t among the best cooking schools for tourists anywhere I’ll eat my Khao Soi.
Why do we think Siam Rice is so good? Because they nailed every single thing anyone could want in a cooking school.
Temples are to Thailand what cathedrals are to Europe. And having spent the better part of this year touring Europe’s cathedrals it’s not surprising that my mind wandered back there upon seeing Wat Rong Khun in the North of Thailand.
We choose Chiang Rai as a starting point for our Asian travels because it seemed like a low-key way to ease into Thailand. This small city in the north didn’t disappoint.
