Meet Mint

Meet Mint, a music school administrator originally from Korat, a delightful province known as a gateway to the Isaan region of Thailand. Pooh is from Nakorn Sri Thammarat, a beautiful seaside province in the far south known, naturally, for fresh seafood and some of the spiciest food in Thailand. The inspiration, skills, and flavors brought to Bangkok by Mint and Pooh from these far corners of Thailand make them a great hosting team!

As the eldest sister, Mint grew up helping her mother cook for the family, while Pooh was drafted to help in the kitchen of the family restaurant. Pooh confesses that her love for cooking didn’t come easily but was slowly acquired over time. Both are now passionate Thai cooks and are eager to share with their guests the customs and culture of their distinct regions of Thailand.

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.

Cooking experience: (1-3 guests) Join Mint and Pooh in the kitchen to prepare an authentic Thai mean. The open-air cooking and dining area is on the ground floor, where their neighbors often stop by to say hello.
Mint and Pooh’s specialties include stir-fried pork in red curry paste with string beans (red curry paste, string beans, and baby corn), fried tofu with sweet sauce (tofu, mushroom, baby corn, Chinese celery), and clear soup with seaweed and minced pork (seaweed, tofu, carrot, Chinese celery).

Market visit: (1-3 guests) Mint will take you to Udomsuk’s neighborhood market, a quick 5-minute walk from the meeting point. After shopping for vegetables and herbs with Mint, she will take you in a taxi ride (15 minutes) to the apartment where Pooh is waiting to welcome you.

Notes: The cooking and dining zone are in an open-air, shared area of the apartment building.

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.
