Meet Sa

Sa is originally from Yala, the southernmost province of Thailand, a distinct and culturally rich region that borders Malaysia. Thai cuisine here is unlike that in the rest the country and is renowned for its spiciness to unsuspecting palates and origins in Malay, halal, and Indian cooking traditions. Sa’s mastery and ease in the kitchen began as a young girl as she helped her grandmother cook and sell Thai desserts at the neighborhood market. While her mother was away studying at university, Sa became the “chief” family cook at the ripe old age of 7!

After finishing her studies in Bangkok, Sa was awarded a scholarship to study in Australia where she earned her PhD. There, she discovered her gift of entertaining as she cooked for her new friends and, later, events at the Thai Embassy. Now back in Thailand, Sa is eager to share her delicious cooking and warm Thai hospitality with travelers.

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.

Journey up the Chao Phraya River to meet your host Sa. Together you will take a quick walk to the local fresh market, Tha Nam Non. Along the way, you’ll see some of the iconic sights of Nonthaburi province like the Tha Nam Non clock tower, the historic town hall, and taxi tricycles.

After the market, take a taxi with Sa to her comfortable home where a drink of bael fruit juice will refresh you before the cooking begins. Sa’s specialties are central and southern Thai dishes, as well as halal food. Some of her favorite dishes to prepare for her guests are Thai massaman – an Indian-style muslim curry with chicken (cinnamon, star anise, cumin, curry paste, shallots, garlics, ginger, coconut milk, potato, onion, and peanuts (optional); stirred fried chicken with cashew nuts (garlic, spring onion, dried chilies, and sweet peppers); and kanom ko, a traditional Thai dessert (flour, palm sugar, coconut, pandan leaf, and butterfly pea).

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.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
