About Me

Writer & Supper Club Chef.

I have been interested in good old fashioned Thai home cooking and street food for thirty years and as and when I could, between the demands of  day to day life, I have journeyed back and forwards to Bangkok to learn to cook and eat Thai food at its source.

The most important and influential  tutor for me has been Gobkaew Najpinij, who I had the privilege to call Mae (meaning mother). She was a great food historian and chef and I worked with her extensively over many years. I have recently written a cookbook in her honour  featuring her highly prized recipes called “Mae’s Ancient Thai Food”.

 

 

I occasionally run a Thai supper club in my own home  and in unusual places – take a look at the supper club page and if it makes your tummy rumble apply to be a guest – I would love to have you at my table!

 

My aim this year is to do more writing and to distribute simple recipes and I will be using Foodgawker and Yummly yo do this so look out for that. I also have several articles planned and I will be appearing in magazines throughout the summer.

If you have any food writing or recipe development work you would like to work on with me I would love to hear from you.
