Pia is a qualified Thai chef with a passion for authentic flavors and methods. A native of the Isaan region of North-East Thailand, her menu ranges from classic cuisine of Bangkok to the earthy, herby flavours of her home region. Pia will bring you an experience of Thai cuisine very different from typical high-street restaurants. She is passionate about cooking from scratch, using only high quality natural ingredients, creating amazing flavour combinations and stunning presentation.
Pia is also an engaging speaker who loves to demonstrate her art and weave Thai culture and language into the whole meal experience.
Pia offers corporate catering, private chef services and private cooking classes in the South Bay area. She supplies original cooking equipment from Thailand, and her own prepared ingredients, for those making authentic Thai dishes at home. And if you are traveling to Thailand, you can take a class at the home of a local chef selected by Pia.
For private dining at home or for family or special occasions, Pia can cook in your home or offsite and serve you at your table. For a special event, we can plan the individual touches and the perfect menu combination for your guests. We bring that legendary Thai courtesy and refinement to your home, serving you unobtrusively in the background. Alternatively, chef Pia can introduce the dishes and their story to your guests as part of the experience. Or if you are hosting a last-minute party and you need great food in a short time, call us and find out what we can do for you.
