I love food. I love everything about food. I love the smell of food, the taste of food, sometimes even the sound of food. I love all kinds of food – American, Italian, Mexican, Indian, everything … but my absolute favorite?

Thai food.

I guess that’s no surprise given that I spent a year living in Thailand where I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the culture, learn all about the history and the people, and enjoy an incredible amount of tasty cuisine.  I also had an amazing mentor named Pii Oye, that sparked the start of my Thai cooking journey.

I set the goal in Thailand of becoming a master of Thai cooking. Deep down my secret goal is to turn into one of those amazing little Thai women at the market who can whip up any one of a hundred different Thai dishes and have it turn out incredible every time. I’m not sure if that will ever actually happen, but that isn’t to say I can’t become darn good at it. Since living in Thailand I have continued exploring my passion – learning the ins and outs of the ingredients, the equipment, and the techniques.

My hope is that you’ll follow along on this blog, leave comments, ask questions, try the recipes, taste the food, be a part of my journey.
