“I come from a strong Thai/Chinese family where cooking and eating have always been a focal point of family life. My parents had always cooked traditional Thai and Chinese dishes throughout my childhood which I helped prepare and cook from about the age of seven.

My early childhood memory was being woken up at 4 am to prepare food to feed the monks at my local temple, which we would share after morning prayers.

My late mum who I love so much, was the first person to teach me to cook traditional Thai and Chinese dishes passed on to her from my grandma. My aunt was also very influential in teaching me to cook and driving my passion for food. She worked as a chef in the Thai Royal kitchen so knew how to cook excellent dishes and present them well.

My very first cookbook ‘Thai Made Easy’ launched last year and will be available at Foodie Festival to grab a signed copy. With clear, uncomplicated instructions and accessible, supermarket-friendly sways for traditional Thai ingredients is the aim for my cookbook.
