I actually began cooking since I was ten. My grandmother and my mother are outstanding home cooks. They taught me how to cook delicious and healthy food throughout my life as I usually asked them for a permission to get in the kitchen to help them cook. I’ve learned how to carefully pick ingredients and pay attention to every single cooking step to make the food come out the way they wanted to be. That was the beginning of my cooking journey.
In 2012, before I came to the U.S.A., I went to Suan Dusit International Culinary School specializing in Thai cuisine in Bangkok, Thailand as a hobby. I learned how to cook Thai food in traditional ways using royal recipes and cooking techniques. I also learned how to crave fruits and vegetables for edible crafts and arts. I didn’t stop at that. I also went to a Japanese cooking school, Lek Japanese Culinary School specializing in sushi in Bangkok, Thailand. I have done all of these just because I love cooking.
I came to the U.S. to earn my master degrees. While I was doing my degrees, I cooked and baked a lot. Many friends asked me to teach them to cook and bake because they knew I am from Thailand. I started to share my recipes on Ploy’s Kitchen YouTube Channel. Then, I thought I should teach a cooking class to stay connected with people. In 2014, I applied for a part-time cooking instructor position at Cambridge Center for Adult Education. I got a job there. About a year later, I became a full-time staff working in the program department managing food and wine program including some other wonderful departments. In July 2021, I accepted the Director of Educational Programs position at CommonWealth Kitchen in Boston and aim to support food entrepreneurs and food businesses.
With all my hearts and passions, I hope you all love my recipes and techniques that I’ve shared with all of you.
