Another internaional Umbrella Monday – this one brought to you from the Klong Toey Market in Bangkok. This market is around the corner from where we lived in Bangkok but we never quite made it there so we made sure not to miss it this past August when we visited. We actually did a cooking class nearby called, Cooking with Poo. You can read more about Khun Poo’s (Khun means Mrs in Thai) amazing story on their website, but suffice to say that she has gone from selling her own food to make enough money to feed her own family to having a cook book sold all over the world, sold out cooking classes, and traveled the world to promote Thai cooking – all in 5 short years! She hadn’t even started cooking classes when we lived there in 2006! Such an incredible story and she is such a lovely lady.
I highly recommend her classes 🙂 That’s Khun Poo in the black top in the background of this shot.
