Meet Cherry

The two most important things for Cherry are family and food! A Bangkok native, Cherry helped with the shopping and chopping in her grandmother’s restaurant from a very early age. By the time she was ten years old, Cherry was preparing most of the meals for her family. Before she knew it, she was doing her MBA in St. Louis, Missouri, and wowing her American friends with her classic Thai cooking - always experimenting with new recipes and tinkering with old ones.

Now, back in Thailand and happily married with an eight year-old daughter, Cherry splits her time between her beloved family and her freelance work in Bangkok’s vibrant advertising industry. However, her passion for cooking never ceased.

Cherry would like to welcome you into her home to become part of her family. Your heart and your stomach will thank you for it!

What to expect

In-home meal: (1-4 guests) Join Cherry at her dining table to share a traditional Thai meal decorated in hi-rise apartment, decorated in her fun and eclectic style. Your meal may include favorites such pineapple fried rice, tom kaa gai, a delicious chicken soup simmered in coconut milk with mushrooms, cabbage, galangal and lemongrass, and tangy yum wun sen, a glass noodle salad with shrimp in a lime sauce. You will conclude your meal with a dessert of Thai sweet mango sticky rice.

Cooking experience: (1-2 guests) Join Cherry in her kitchen to learn to prepare a traditional Thai meal. Your hands-on cooking experience will last about two hours before you share the meal you helped prepare together at her dining table.

Market visit: (1-2 guests) Meet Cherry at the BTS station and walk with her to a local fresh market right in the heart of Bangkok’s fashionable Thong Lor district. Pinch, sniff, touch and taste some of the exotic tropical fruits and vegetables you’ll use to prepare lunch. Next, Cherry will take you Mae Varee, Bangkok's most popular mango sticky rice stall where she will purchase your dessert. Hop in a taxi for the short trip to her hi-rise apartment 21 floors above Bangkok.

Traveler reviews

What a fun way to start my time in Bangkok! Cherry made it very easy to meet her and get around, and we had a lovely time shopping and cooking together. I got some great insights into the little things that make dishes delicious, and I feel confident I can recreate them at home. Thanks Cherry! - SD

Overall is great. My host Cherry is very kind, sweet and polite. Her house is in one of the best areas in Bangkok. Really easy to go. Also detail of meeting point is provided clearly in advance. Moreover, her food is delicious and made from good quality ingredients. To sum up, I have a pleasure time with Cherry. My favorite dish was Fried eggs with Dok-Sa-Noh and Nam Prik Ka Pi. - Pattazia

Shopping with Cherry at her local market for veggies and the special Mangos was fun and educational even! Loved the market experience with Cherry! Her home is really adorable and super clean and organized - with lots of charm. She's great to work with in the kitchen and the food was wonderful. I loved the authenticity of the whole experience, especially the market experience! - Michelle
