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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
This recipe is inspired by one of my new favourite vegetables: Chayote squash! Crunchy, juicy, with a subtle sweetness that works well in so many applications especially in salad, which is a variation of the famous green papaya salad! It’s got a refreshing crunchy feel of a slaw that will go great with any meal, especially […]
These chewy banana coconut pancakes are not what you would have for breakfast but they’re perfect little desserts or afternoon snacks. You can find these mochi-like little guys in some open-air markets in Thailand, but they’re becoming harder to find these days so I gotta learn how to make my own! INGREDIENTS Makes 24 1.5-inch […]
This recipe is courtesy of Natalia Machado, my lovely Argentinian co-host on the TV show One World Kitchen! This is the recipe for a traditional Argentinian cheese bread that Natalia serves at her restaurant as a gluten-free option for the bread basket. They’re amazingly cheesy and addictive! Think hot, chewy, cheesy mochi with a […]

So excited to share with you the traditional recipe that inspired my wildly popular Mango Coconut Jelly Cubes recipe! In this dessert, there are two layers representing two different life stages of the coconut: coconut water from a young coconut, and coconut milk from a mature one. Perfumed with aromatic pandan leaf, the combination is […]
There are many types of rice puddings in the Thai dessert repertoire, but this one is an absolute classic. Longan is a juicy, sweet, aromatic fruit that goes so well with the rice pudding. It’s a comforting, satisfying, ward dessert that is also a ridiculously easy recipe that you really cannot screw up. It is […]
