Meet Waranya

As the owner of a Thai restaurant in Bangkok, Waranya is no stranger to cooking and entertaining guests, but now she lets her husband run the family business so she can look after her two children, ages 16 and 8. Lucky for us, being a stay-at-home mom allows her the freedom to get back into her kitchen and do what she does best: cook!

Waranya is originally from Lopburi province, a central Thai province known for the hundreds of monkeys that playfully roam the city center. As a little girl, Waranya was inspired to cook by her grandmother and father and was soon cooking for her very large extended family.

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: (1-4 guests) Waranya serves a variety of classic Thai dishes to her Traveling Spoon guests. Your menu might feature dishes such as Thai green curry with coconut shoots (green chili paste, sweet basil, and coconut shoots), stir fried pork with black pepper (bell pepper, fresh black pepper, and onion) and stir-fried sunflower sprouts with garlic.

Cooking experience: (1-4 guests) Enter the kitchen with Waranya and learn to prepare some of her favorite dishes.

Market visit: (1-4 guests) Waranya will take you by private car to Bang Yai market, just 5 minutes away from Central Plaza. This fresh indoor market offers variety of local food ingredients for you to select before heading to Waranya's place, located in a peaceful corner of Nonthaburi province.

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.
