The Bangkok Cooking Club does anything and everything culinary related, each meetup is carefully crafted to provide members with a unique food experience, to learn something new along the way and make kindred friends.

Meet the Team:

The organisers to the Bangkok Cooking Club are inspirational individuals who have led the Bangkok Cooking Club on a diverse culinary journey. They have generously volunteered their own time and knowledge passionately teaching us their skills and favourite recipes.

Sam- is the founder of the group, she has a background in Food Science and has a voracious appetite for learning new culinary skills and cuisines. She gets great delight by seeing other people having a good time in sharing and learning new skills, and hopes that everyone has as much fun at the events as she does!

Gopi- is an eclectic and heartfelt cook, an aficionado of diverse ethnic cooking styles from North Africa to regional Indian cuisine. A wizard with subtle and minimal spicing, he has re-invented classic dishes to sublime effect. Just a wave of his spice wand can transform an otherwise plain dish into something unforgettable. He shares his love and knowledge of food culture with the group unreservedly. You can read more on his blog which explores a world of food, recipes, travel, analysis and culture. (

Maricel is a very passionate vegan chef and special event host. She has been traveling around the world for 5 years and visited over 70 countries. During her travels she collected her favorite dishes from restaurants, vendors and friends all over the world and veganized it. Her passion for food and cooking combined with her knowledge of international cuisine has inspired her to create unique fusion dishes that she introduces to her guests. Her goal is to enchant people with her dishes and travel experiences and inspire to a healthy and happy lifestyle.

Stella Bella - made in Thailand and raised in Sydney Australia. When she was 26 years old she had an inner urge to resign from her day job as a Radiographer, pack her life in two suitcase in search of a fulfilling life with passion and purpose.

Fast forward fews later when she's not creatively creating up a wholesome meal or menu, she's with nature moving her body through yoga and trekking out to the rural farms around Thailand and teaching others like you to do the same. She is constantly fuelled by my love and passion for Nutrition, Organic Farming, natural therapies and whipping new delicious healthy menu. She is also a believer in the healing power of living harmoniously with nature and wellness is an active process of becoming aware of making choices toward a healthy, fulfilling and a Stellar life.
