Thai Food Fit for a King and Queen

Chef May, owner and head chef of Thai Pearl, was born and raised in Isan in Northeast Thailand, trained at the Royal Palace Academy and cooked for the Royal family of Thailand in Bangkok. She then moved to Australia to work alongside a Michelin Star Chef prior to landing in West AVL and opening Thai Pearl. (Lucky for us!) Check out our latest Insta reel to see how she whips it up in the kitchen.
