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. Once you make the mixture, if […]
These sesame cookies are cute yummy treats that make the perfect food gifts. When I was a kid I used to eat these all the time! Buttery shortbread style cookies boosted with a ton of toasted sesame seeds and topped with cashews. They also last a long time and can be packaged and sent to […]
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! The book is titled “Everyday Siamese Cooking” by Sibpan Sonakul, who is the granddaughter of […]
Thai people love to eat fish whole! You’ll often spot these salt crusted fish being sold on the streets of Thailand, and here’s a recipe that shows you how you can recreate it at home. The salt helps retain the moisture in the fish which makes the fish so incredibly juicy!! Along with the wonderful […]
Massaman curry is famous for a good reason—it’s so gosh darn delicious!!! If you’ve had it, you know I’m right 🙂 I’m using beef short ribs in this version, which is hands down the best cut of beef for this…it’s flavourful and all the marbling keeps it moist and tender. Creamy sweet potato goes perfectly […]
I’m starting this video not by prepping ingredients, but by catching my main ingredient straight from the ocean! My friend Rodney from fishingwithrod.com took me out on my first ever fishing trip, and in this video I show you a bit of the fishing/prawning/crabbing action in the beautiful city of Vancouver, and then we get […]

I fused together two traditional Thai desserts and gave it a bit of a twist, and the result was absolutely divine! Warm and luscious black sticky rice pudding with creamy coconut ice cream, refreshed by sweet-tart caramelized pineapple. It’s a beautiful dessert that can be easily made in advance, not to mention it’s gluten-free, dairy-free and […]
