Natty is The Cook. Natty also writes, photographs, and occasionally performs the hand modeling.
Natty was born and raised in Thailand into a family that travels throughout the country, always hunting for great Thai food. Natty's grandma has minor food fame for carving bamboo shoots into animals, leaves and figures - now an industry that you can see when you buy fancy bamboo shoots in bottles and cans. Natty's mom brews homemade fish sauce as dark as chocolate that smells and tastes exquisite.
Natty's own food experiments started at age 6 with variations on fried scrambled eggs. Her frustration with the lack of Thai food when she came to the US in the 1980's forced her to try to find a way to make authentic Thai food outside of Thailand, which she's been doing ever since.
Natty, when not in the kitchen, manages technology products. Natty has an MBA and loves San Francisco, where she mountain bikes in the hills and chases down new taquerias.
