Hello from my mom’s garden in Thailand! I waited all year to come home and make miang kham, which is potentially the most unique tasting dish I’ve made so far on the show! There really isn’t anything quite like it. You make a little cup with the betel leaf, fill it with all sorts of […]
After being on a toast-and-cereal breakfast routine for what seems like years, I desperately needed to find a new, interesting, delicious way to get breakfast ready in just a few minutes (because I am not getting up extra early if I can help it!). Then thank heavens this dish came to mind! Kai Grata, or […]
An iconic dish of Northern Thailand, “sai ua” is one of the most flavourful sausages I can think of. The pork is mixed with an aromatic curry paste, grilled, then served with sticky rice and fresh veggies. Yum! Making sausages doesn’t have to be a lot of work, though.

This ain’t your mama’s “fruit cake”! This light and refreshing beauty is an absolute showstopper, and nothing says “summer treats” more than these gorgeous cubes of fruit-embedded jelly. The coconut layer adds an extra tropical flare! The fruit combination I used: mango, papaya, pineapple, lychee, kiwi and blueberries, is a winning combination, but you can […]
This dessert was my childhood obsession! I’d forgotten about it for a long time and just remembering it now so I wanted to share the recipe with you. In Thai it is called “Tao Huay Fruit Salad” but it is also known as Almond Float in some country. This version I’m making is a more […]
Since the 4th of July celebration is coming up, I thought it would be the appropriate time for me to post this “Thai” recipe! This fried rice, though named “American”, is a uniquely Thai experience. It contains ingredients that we associate with American food: ketchup, hot dogs, sunnyside up egg, and fried chicken drumsticks (possibly […]
This recipe is an a bit of an exploration into Thai history! Here’s the story: A lovely HTK fan recently sent me a copy of a very special Thai cookbook: The very first Thai cookbook to ever be written in English!

Dim Sum in Bangkok is world class, no question about it! In this vlog, my friends and I went to a classic restaurant that is very well known for their authentic Hong Kong style dim sum: Ah Yat Abalone Forum. Ah Yat also offers other Cantonese dishes outside of their dim sum menu. There are […]
