Meet Pink

Pink learned to cook Thai food while she was abroad studying in the UK. The cooking in Birmingham “Thai” restaurants could not compare to her mother’s skillful touch, and so after growing tired of a diet of faux Thai and instant noodles, Pink became determined to learn by herself - and with the help of her soon-to-be husband, "A", on his occasional visits from Belgium. The toughest part of learning to cook abroad, she says, was not only finding those elusive Thai herbs and spices so crucial to the delicate balance of flavors, but also cooking on a (gasp!) electric oven that doesn’t allow for the subtle changes in temperature which are also important for Thai cooking. Pink's determination paid off - she is now an expert in the kitchen!

A third-generation Thai of Chinese heritage, Pink loves to cook, travel, and practice her English with foreigners. This makes her the perfect Traveling Spoon Host. Come see for yourself!

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (1-8 guests) Share a home cooked authentic Thai meal with Pink at her dining table. Some of Pink’s specialties include grilled mushrooms tossed with basil, chili, shallots, and then steamed in banana leaves, green curry chicken and stir-fried shrimp with garlic, white pepper seeds, and coriander root.

Cooking experience: (1-8 guests) Soon after you arrive at Pink’s beautiful garden home in Samut Sakhorn province, you’ll be in her garden picking Thai herbs like chili, basil, kaffir lime, lemon grass, and coriander – everything you’ll need for today’s lunch.

She'll teach you to cook sweet green curry from scratch, including pressing the coconut milk from fresh coconuts. Your hands-on cooking lesson will last about 2-3 hours.

Traveler reviews

Pink and A are definitely great hosts and we spent a lovely day with them. The property is breathtaking and the food was simply delicious. Highly recommended! Our favorite dish was the lotus shoots.

We had one of the best cross-cultural experiences not to mention culinary experiences I've ever had in my life!

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    Once you request a booking you can message your host directly to ask any specific questions. Your messages will be emailed directly to the host and any responses will be forwarded to your email and can also be seen on the Traveling Spoon website.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    All prices are noted as per person prices unless otherwise specified (typically transportation is charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person).

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.
