Zonya -Saranya- Dawson here! I was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, and moved to the US when I was 14 years old. My mother and sister are chefs and my whole life has been surrounded by delicious food, mostly Thai food. Growing up I was taught by my mom, grandmother, aunts, and uncles that cooking for others is the ultimate form of showing love. Food was and is an integral part of my life and my family. I am so happy that you are here and I can't wait to cook with you!
saranyacooksthai was introduced in 2018 as a small-scale "catering" operation. Our bread and butter was private in-home dining that focused on traditional Thai cuisine, educating our guests about ingredients, flavors, and culture. February of 2020 with COVID-19 became an official pandemic we closed our catering doors.
May 2020 the saranyacooksthai recipe kits were born. The kits were inspired by companies like hello fresh or blue apron, but with a traditional and community-focused twist. Every kit was created with love, with authentic fresh ingredients shopped from local shop family-owned businesses and a giving back model that gave fresh, culturally relevant food to families in need.
February 2021 came around and life took over and the kits took a break. Now, sct is back with a new way to share Thai cooking and culture. Through LIVE cooking sessions and youtube videos, I hope to cook and eat with you all again.
And in the Summer of 2021, sct will be launching our first line of sauces.
