I love to cook!



I love to cook!  It fills me with joy and is an experience of the heart, mind and senses.

My passion for cooking spans over 60 years; beginning with my family in northern Thailand as a young girl, then gaining knowledge and wisdom passed down through generations and from experiences on my travels.  After living in various parts of the U.S. then Melbourne, I have now grounded in beautiful Chewton, Victoria, where I spend my days tending to my vegetable garden and thinking about cooking.


I am delighted to share with you organically grown produce from my garden and am passionate about using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients.  I firmly believe that good food not only nourishes the body, but also the spirit.


Come and join me in my expansive kitchen; immerse yourself in Thai food culture, where we will laugh and eat, as I share my lifelong love of food in my unique cooking classes.


I look forward to your company!


 My unique cooking masterclasses will take you on a culinary adventure beyond recipes, where you will learn how to transform simple, fresh ingredients into a diverse range of dishes bursting with flavour. Classes are held in the Castlemaine area.


The following masterclasses are offered on two different dates:

Saturday 21st September and Sunday 13th October

You will learn how to make and understand how to adjust the recipes in order to reach the tastes and texture you desire while adhering  to the authentic Thai combination of spices. 

You will also learn and feel confident in substituting fresh local and seasonal produce while respecting the texture, colours and tastes of those used in Thailand.

For these two classes we will 

  • make Green curry paste and then Green curry

  • (vegetarian option available)

  • Understand various types of noodles and make Pad Thai

  • (vegetarian option available)

  • learn the essential tastes and texture of Som Tum using local ingredients 

  • For dessert; Caramelised bananas in coconut milk

Classes start at 10 am with a welcome snack. We cook together with some demonstration until about 

2  pm then enjoy lunch  over a glass of wine. This is when we have spontaneous Q&A session and getting to know each other. We usually finish around 3 pm.
