Chef Nat grew up in a small village on the banks of the Tha-Jeen river. He acquired his love of cooking by helping his aunt Cha-Loy in the family kitchen. Together, they would prepare various curry pastes, soups, and other traditional Thai meals. They did this together for many years. Now, Chayanat has over 10 years of experience in both teaching traditional Thai culinary arts, fruit and vegetable carving, and as the head chef of several Thai restaurants in overseas countries.
