Sawadee Ka!

My name is Ann. I started Cooking with Ann in 2014 in Chiang Rai, Thailand. My passion is food and cooking, therefore I love meeting new travelers and teaching them how to cook Thai food. My mission is to provide fun and immerse Thai cooking experience.

I was born in Chiang Khong in Chiang Rai providence. I started cooking at the age of 7 with my late grandmother. She taught me all the Thai traditional cooking style and ingredients.

I moved to Bangkok and opened 2 Thai restaurants. I missed my hometown and sold those restaurants to return to Chiang Rai. I started a guesthouse in Chiang Rai. Many guests were interested in Thai cooking class. That is how Cooking With Ann got started.  Since then I had taught over 900 students all around the world.

Fun facts about me:

I graduated with a degree in a financial and electric engineer.

I worked as a hairstylist for Thai beauty pageants.

I worked as a make-up artist for the horror film industry.

After all those years, I returned back to my passion for food and cooking.
