A crash course IN RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION FOR THE FOODIE,
THE 'FUSSY EATER', AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN
DESIGNED TO ANSWER the questions modern consumers and foodies have about the origins of food and what it really means to eat well, this is an illuminating and hands-on experience that will take you deep into North Thailand's culinary cultures, by way of Chiang Mai and its surrounding villages. Through insightful lessons from farmers, chefs, baristas, agriculturalists, and Thai Mamas, you will get your hands and feet dirty making the journey from farm to table, and gain a deep appreciation and understanding of what makes food good, and how food is a critical influence on culture and community health.
where does your food come from, and why does it matter?
Dive deep to understand what organic farming and farm-to-table mean for both producers and consumers, by joining experts on the ground and in the field to farm, forage, and of course, feed
Be inspired by how tight-knit communities and organisations leverage locally, lovingly grown food as an asset for sustainable development
No experience in cooking? No problem! Through both formal and home-based cooking lessons, you'll come away with both knowledge and practice in whipping up traditional Thai dishes using local produce
Experience Thailand hospitality like never before as you stay with warm, hospitable (and safety-screened) local families in scenic villages across Chiang Mai province, and build bridges across language barriers
