“Ky” Cooks Thai

My name is Kylene and I am a lover of everything Thai. I had an amazing opportunity to serve in the U.S. Peace Corps in Thailand and completely fell in love with the country — the culture, the people, the language, the customs, and of course the food! Thai food has always been one of my favorite cuisines (okay not always, but for the last few years!) and being sent to Thailand only fed that love (pun completely intended). My taste buds couldn’t have spent that time in a better place.

Upon returning home I decided to continue my love affair with Thailand though this blog. This blog will tell the story of my continued efforts to learn everything I can about Thailand, the amazing people, the intriguing culture, and most importantly (because I love to eat!) their cuisine. You’ll find posts with recipes and reviews, of course, but you’ll also find me exploring more about the country itself. I am no expert on any of this, so you’ll be following my learning journey as well — and hopefully learning some new things for yourselves along the way.

If you have any questions about the blog, my time in Thailand, or anything else that fancies you, feel free to email me at

Cory Also Cooks Thai

Cory is my husband and he shares my passion for Thai culture and cooking. It started when he came to visit me for a few weeks during my service. He immediately fell in love with the country and when we attended a cooking class together in Chiang Mai there was no turning back. He was hooked.

He returned to the states and began his own Thai journey. It was something we shared even living halfway across the world from each other. He started practicing his own techniques, asking me questions via email, sharing his successes (and some failures too!). When I returned to the states, this became a joint passion of ours.

It is so fun to share this interest with him. We cook Thai food at home all the time, teach our cooking classes together, and he inspires many of the blog posts that I write. What started as my solo Thai journey has become a joint endeavor and while this blog is still “Ky Cooks Thai” he most definitely plays a starting role in this journey.
