Now that you know the basics of Thai language from Episode 1, time to step it up a notch! In this video I teach you phrases that would be useful in a restaurant setting, or when buying food from a street vendor. This is a pretty important set of phrases because eating is probably the most important thing you'll do in Thailand, right??
Next up in the series we will go over some basic food terms so that at the very least you will recognize when someone says they're serving you "chicken" or "pork". Let me know if you have suggestions on other videos around Thai language and culture!
Pailin “Pai” Chongchitnant is the author of the Hot Thai Kitchen cookbook, co-host of a Canadian TV series One World Kitchen on Gusto TV, and creator and host of the YouTube channel Pailin's Kitchen.
Pai was born and raised in southern Thailand where she spent much of her "playtime" in the kitchen. She traveled to Canada to study Nutritional Sciences at the University of British Columbia, and was later trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in San Francisco.
After working in both Western and Thai professional kitchens, she decided that her passion really lies in educating and empowering others to cook at home via YouTube videos, her cookbook, and cooking classes. She currently lives in Vancouver, and goes to Thailand every year to visit her family. Visit her at http://hot-thai-kitchen.com
