Meet Fon

Fon is a woman of many talents: freelance editor, translator and entrepreneur, full time mother, and, of course, extraordinary cook! The eldest of three children, she was a big help to her mother at their family’s restaurant in Nonthaburi, just north of Bangkok. It was here that she ‘inherited’ her mother’s skillful touch for preparing central Thai curries. Now Fon lives with her family in the historic Phra Nakorn district of Bangkok, which includes famous landmarks like The Grand Palace and Wat Pho, home of the glittering reclining Buddha.

What to expect

From the meeting point, Fon will take you in a tuk tuk ride to Trok Moh market, a quaint neighborhood market located down a tiny soi and overflowing with local fresh fruits and vegetables. Along the way, you’ll feel as if you’re being transported back in time to a Bangkok long ago forgotten. After your shopping is complete, you’ll continue in a tuk tuk to Fon’s place where her family will be waiting to welcome you.

Fon’s specialties include pork in panaeng curry (coconut milk, pea eggplants, chilies, basil) stir-fried pork with basil and chilies or Thailand’s soul food, pad kra pow (stir-fried chicken with garlic and basil) or stir-fried cowslip flowers. For dessert, enjoy banana in coconut milk.
