Sawaddee November!

Sawaddee ka reader! Please excuse my skipping October newsletter, but I am on a bit of a traveling marathon so things are pretty crazy busy around here! I went to Ottawa to speak at the Food Bloggers Conference, I attended a cookbook award show in Toronto, and I'm still not done for the year (see details below)! Let's get caught up, shall we? Lots of yummy recipes in the past couple of months and tons of new ingredient videos to oomph up your knowledge on some basic Thai pantry items!

  • My Cookbook won the Taste Canada Award! Yay!! As I said in my acceptance speech, this book would not be possible without my viewers, so thank you sincerely for your never ending support. On that note, the holiday season is coming up, so if there's someone in your life who loves to cook, consider them getting an "award-winning cookbook" perhaps? ;) (More on my book here)
  • I'm coming to Dubai!!! Woohoo! I'm going to attend Sharjah International Book Fair, and I will be doing some cooking demos, so if you're in the area, come say hi! I've never been to Dubai so if you've got any advice, suggestions, or recommendations, please share with me! I will try to film some cool vlogs to share with you while I'm there.
  • New stuff added to KIT. Don't forget to check back on my Kit page occasionally as I add new stuff to it quite regularly. If you haven't checked it out yet, this is where I list most of the ingredients and tools I use on the show for your reference. Also remember to let me know if I miss anything.
