I'd like to invite you to my home, for a dining experience when you come and visit Bangkok. You could choose to come for lunch or dinner, and I will prepare some of my specialty dishes, which I have learnt the recipes from my ancestors. The dining experience will be hosted in my home, which is an apartment building, entirely shared with my whole family. We have a nice common area right by the pool and garden for us to have a nice view as we enjoy the lunch/dinner together over some lovely conversation.
I also love travelling with my husband, and would love to meet all of you from different countries and share stories!
I am excited to share more about our Thai culture. So on top of the meal itself, I'd also like to share with you some of our tradition. So do come and join us for a themed evening, where you could also get the experience to dress up in our traditional costume, if you would like.
Sukhumvit is an exclusive district in Bangkok. It is home to fancy apartments, villas, restaurants, bars and clubs. Popular among foreign visitors and expats, it becomes more and more a Thai residential neighbourhood as you follow the road southeast...There are lots of things to do here, such as museums, parks and spas!
Cooking with Usa was such a wonderful experience. My sisters and I traveled to Thailand over the Thanksgiving holiday and spent the day with Usa and her family. She spent time in the market telling us about the different ingredients and allowing us to smell and taste as we went. When we arrived at her home she carefully explained each step of the dishes we made, allowing for a hands on experience. As a former cook I asked a lot of questions and she was very patient with me. She also told us about Thai culture and foods from different regions while we ate our meal. We can't rave enough about what a wonderful time we had and how great cooking with Usa is.
I had the chance to dine with Usa and her family while we were curating hosts in Bangkok. The cooking area is located next to a pool surrounded by beautiful plants and Usa is a very patient teaching us how to make Som Tum using pestle and mortar as we spill the ingredients everywhere! We were also accompanied by her son who also loves cooking. Over the dining table, Usa and her family kept us engaged as we share more about food in our home countries. We have also found out that she is regularly invited to teach Thai culture and cuisine at a school nearby her home. One of my favourite parts of this dinner was Usa's homemade coconut ice-cream served inside a cute coconut porcelain with a side of homemade pumpkin bread! It was a lovely and unique experience right in the hearts of bustling Bangkok!
