Meet Chef Som Kesa from Bangkok

Som was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. Her mom taught her how to cook from a very young age. In the 1970’s, she moved to the United States to take her masters at the University of Michigan.

After only a few days, she realized Thai food in the US lacked depth, flavor and real Thai ingredients. She wanted to keep eating the delicious food she grew up loving, so she started taking cooking more seriously. Her love for cooking led her to prepare meals for more than 200 people, make new friends, and even meet her husband.

After getting her masters, Som moved to Seattle where she raised 2 kids, taught Thai at the University of Washington, and started her own catering/cooking class business.

Som has always stayed true to her roots and only cooks traditional Thai food using traditional techniques that she learned in Thailand. She is one of the most influential Thai Cooks in Seattle and was named one of five Foodie Empire Honorees in 2015.

The most frequently asked questions

When does the class start?

Som’s class and starter kits will be ready to ship mid December 2017, just in time for you to give this as a Christmas gift to someone special. The course is designed in a way that each class can be taken on any day that works for you. All you need to make sure is that you get the fresh produce before you can start.

What format does the class take?

Som’s class is both an immersive online experience and a hands-on cooking class that you take conveniently from your home. The curriculum for each class is designed by the teacher. Each class includes pre-recorded video content, a cook booklet, and community activities. The videos are viewable at any time, and they can be paused, fast-forwarded, and re-watched as many times as you’d like. In addition, many students utilize the class discussions below each video to share their thoughts, upload their performances, and provide feedback on others’ work.

Is the class live?

Som provides pre-recorded video lessons, which can be watched anytime. There are opportunities to connect with Som in a live-chat or meet her in person at events that we announce up to 1 month prior to the scheduled date.
