Hi, I am Dao.

In 2013, along with my husband, we moved to Northern Thailand, the land of a million rice fields. An obvious choice as we both love mountains, tropical agriculture and Asian street food.

Even though my mom taught me how to cook Thai food and I had been working for more than 3 years in a Belgian bakery in London, it was here in Chiang Mai that food really got me.

I love to slow-cook, to get my vegetables soaked and soft. We both enjoy tasty, savory, spicy traditional food full of herbs. I usually cook with one, occasionally two pots. Slow cooked black beans, (meat based) broths and home made yogurt are staples at our home.

For nutrition we don't hold any belief too close, but most recipes here are vegetarian.
