Do you love Thai food?

I was sitting on a plastic stool at an open air noodle shop by San Plu Market in Bangkok, slurping some wildly satisfying street food when it hit me. All at once, I realized I could never go on without these flavors. 

I wasn't getting this in the Thai restaurants back in the states, and I am not one to miss out on an unforgettable meal. 

Let me share with you the kitchen hacks I've developed through years of researching this rich and diverse cuisine to make faithful renditions of Thai dishes simple and rewarding to make at home.

JB Macatulad -

"I loved the format. It presents the information in a linear way so it's easy to understand. The content is broken down nicely too so people can easily go back to  specific sections after finishing the course." 

Jenny Vergera - Food Writer

Jenny is a foodie and journalist working in the Kansas City area.

"I enjoyed the course, quite a lot. Thai food is intimidating to make at home. There are a lot of ingredients and equipment that is involved and although I have a million Thai food cookbooks, nothing is the same as seeing someone else make the dishes. Videos are so important for me to really understand what something looks like and how it should be prepared."
