Hi, I am Dao.
In 2013, along with my husband, we moved to Northern Thailand, the land of a million rice fields. An obvious choice as we both love mountains, tropical agriculture and Asian food.
Even though my mom taught me how to cook Thai food and I had been working for more than 3 years in a Belgian bakery in London, it was here in Chiang Mai that food really got me.
I love to slow-cook, having vegetables soft and soaked, savory and spicy dishes with lots of herbs. I usually make food with one, occasionally two pots. Slow cooked black beans,(meat based) broths and home made yogurt are staples at our home.
For nutrition we don't hold any belief too close, but most recipes here are vegetarian.

black rice & quinoa spring salad with peas
We were over the moon when we found out that our heirloom black rice inspired Gena from The Full Helping to come up with a new recipe! Our rice paired in a delicious two-grain salad, along with quinoa, green peas, radish, carrots, nuts and seeds.
