Cultural Connections Through Cooking Experience

August 19, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , , ,

Khiri is promoting a new day tour in Chiang Mai, available immediately, that offers a fun cooking experience in a unique private home setting. Learn about the owner’s traditional way of life and delicious northern Thai cuisine at this historic family homestead.

Learning to cook Thai food can be as much a cultural experience as a culinary one. Khiri Travel Thailand promotes a new day tour that offers a cooking theme but so much more! This fun excursion goes to the traditional home of the Raunkaew-Yanon family, proud descendants of northern Thailand’s historical Lanna Kingdom. Located about 14 km outside of Chiang Mai, they maintain their teak home and generous garden in the Lanna style rarely seen now in modern times. Their local village is home to many artisans and workshops.

The home is a living museum. The friendly hosts show their family tree in photos of their forefathers arriving in Chiang Mai riding elephants almost 150 years ago. The wealth of the family shows in the size of the house and rice barn as well as the large area dedicated to gardens and orchards. Their Buddhist beliefs and cultural values are evident everywhere.

Guests are welcomed with a refreshing drink and a pair of Thai fisherman pants (like loose-fitting spa pants) that immediately create a relaxed atmosphere. The homeowner takes your clients to select fresh ingredients from the garden and fruits such as mango and coconut from the orchard. Your clients will then cook some traditional northern Thai food with flavors (and freshness!) quite unlike other commercial classes. In the end, the experience is really all about getting to know the way of life of a real Thai family by enjoying each other’s company and sharing together a delicious home cooked meal.
