Meet Aom

Aom’s love of cooking came alive when she had her daughter and became passionate about feeding her tasty food. She takes pride in preparing fresh, homemade food for her family – and of course for herself! Aom works part-time at a local radio station so she can spend more time in the kitchen and with her family. Aom loves to try new dishes and experiment with her own recipes. She often prepares large meals that she loves sharing with her neighbors. Aom hosts with her good friend and neighbor, K. Yaa.

Originally from Northeastern Thailand, K. Yaa grew up helping her parents in the kitchen. She later honed her skills while away at college where each group of students took turns cooking for their classmates and teachers. K. Yaa found that she enjoyed the whole process of meal preparation, from menu planning and preparing the ingredients to cooking the meal. She truly delighted in feeding her friends and teachers. She now works as a radio announcer and cooks during her spare time. Aom and K. Yaa enjoy hosting together to show travelers their love for homemade Thai food. They embody typical Thai generosity and hospitality.

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) Together Aom and K. Yaa will serve you some of their favorite Thai dishes such as pad kaneeng moo grob (choy sum stir fried in oyster sauce with crispy pork), tom kha gai (coconut chicken soup with Thai herbs), and moo pad baiyiiraa (stir fried pork with tree basil, chili and garlic). Enjoy your meal over a glass of freshly squeezed juice, like one of their specialties, butterfly pea juice with honey and lime! You might end your meal with a dessert of sweet pumpkin in coconut milk.

Cooking experience: (1-4 guests) Join K. Yaa and Aom in the kitchen where together you will prepare an authentic Thai meal. You will chop, pound and squeeze ingredients as they share their secrets to preparing a flavorful Thai meal. You will cook in their small kitchen which is located in the back of the house in an open air space, typical of small Thai homes.

Market visit: (1-4 guests) Meet your hosts at the Mochit BTS station and then drive together to MuangThoong 1 Market. Aom and K. Yaa will show you the many variety of local fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that are used in Thai cooking. After shopping for some ingredients for your meal, you will drive to Aom’s house to start cooking together.

Notes: Aom lives in a simple, sparsely decorated house that is typical of the Thai middle class. Aom believes in letting her daughter express her artistic creativity and allows her to draw on the walls of their home, so you can expect to see her drawings in the main room of the house. A visit to Aom’s home is a true glimpse into everyday Thai life and Aom and K. Yaa’s incredibly friendly personalities and generous spirits more than make up for what the home lacks in ambiance. They truly embody the Thai tradition of gracious hospitality and you are sure to depart from their home with two new friends in Bangkok.

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.
