• Announcing New Show: Pai's Kitchen! I'm so excited this is finally happening! I will release a video announcement soon with more details, but I wanted you guys to be the first to hear about it.
I've been sharing Thai recipes with you for more than 5 years now, with over 200 videos dedicated to Thai food! Recently, many people have been asking me about my other non-Thai dishes, and I LOVED hearing that because I have so many delicious recipes that I would love to share with you that are not Thai, but until now, I didn't have any "place" to share them with you.
So I'm launching a second show, "Pai's Kitchen," on the same YouTube channel (PailinsKitchen), where I will share with you everything food-related that is outside the scope of Thai cuisine. The exciting thing is that the show will also include more than just recipes! More details to come on that :)
Now, before you panic, Hot Thai Kitchen isn't going anywhere! Thai food is in my blood so I won't ever stop cooking and sharing it. I'm simply creating a new space so I can share more of my passion with you. This also opens the door for me to bring on other experts, like my Japanese chef friend, Hana, to share new recipes and ideas with us :)
The show will start off slow, with 1 episode every 3-4 weeks to start, and we'll see how you guys like them and go from there! You'll be seeing the first episode in the next couple of weeks.
Pai's Kitchen is open for requests! If you have any requests for dishes that are not Thai (Asian, Western, bakery...anything!), please send them my way and I'll share my version with you. Also, if you have ideas for non-cooking videos for Pai's Kitchen (product tasting, vlogging...etc.) please let me know as well!
• "What's that [ingredient/tool] you use in your videos? And where can I get it?" I get asked this question a lot! With so much demand, I thought it would be helpful for you to see all the stuff I use on the show listed in one place. So, I created a kind of a virtual store on the website just for that! These are products that are listed on Amazon.com, and I simply consolidated them all onto my website, with my personal notes for each of the item, so you can browse both ingredients and equipment that you may have seen on the show and wondered about! It's a work in progress (takes much longer than I thought to add these things!) so please check out the page and let me know if I missed anything! If you're on the website, you can get to the page by clicking "Shop" and then "Thai Ingredients and Tools" on the top menu bar.
• I'm going to Thailand! What do you want to see? It's that wonderful time of year again when I get to go home and see my family! I'm leaving at the end of November for about 3 weeks. As always, when I'm there, I try to film interesting things to share with you, so if you have any requests about what kind of videos you'd like to see from Thailand, let me know! To refresh your memory, here are all the Thailand videos I've done in the past. This is also a very special trip because my cousin is getting married, and for this occasion, all of my 10 cousins, who are now spread out all over the world, are going to be there. It'll be the first time in 25 years that we're together in one place!
