Your Teacher, Kallayanee Glover
Kallayanee Glover was born in the Northeast of Thailand, in a small village without electricity or running water. Villagers lived much as they always had in this beautiful country — and their authentic Thai cooking reflected a long tradition of recipes handed down from generation to generation. Kallayanee learned from her mother and still cooks many of the same dishes. However, she regularly travels back to Thailand, where she learns new dishes from some of the best chefs in the country — and from enthusiastic family and friends! You’ll benefit from these trips when you learn how to make little-known Thai dishes that your friends and family will love.
Free Cooking Support
Once you’ve taken a class, you will also benefit from free cooking support whenever you are trying to cook your new recipes on your own. Just contact Kallayanee by email.
Panorama Recreation Centre
We always enjoy hosting Thai cooking classes at our home in North Saanich. And, we are still pleased to be teaching classes for the Panorama Recreation Centre in North Saanich, which we have been doing since 2009. For classes at Kallayanee’s home in North Saanich, contact us by phone at 250-656-1227 or by email. You can easily find us with a Google map!
Welcome To Happiness
When we opened Kallayanee’s Kitchen in 2006, it was only to please a few of our close friends who wanted to experience the pleasures of Thai cooking and eating — NOT to start a business. We just wanted to please our friends. And so we did. And so that became the mission of Kallayanee’s Kitchen. Simply, we aim to please.
It’s not just about the food, though. Over time, we have discovered that people enjoy coming to our classes to meet new people, to talk, and to make friends. People relax, let themselves go, and enjoy quality time with others. We also welcome just about everybody, from eight-month-old tots to folks in their 80’s and 90’s. Our home, where we host our classes, also helps. It was built in the late 1920’s and added onto as the years progressed. The view from our dining room is magnificent, with Saltspring Island and Saanich Inlet in the distance.
Come, join us. You’ll be glad you did.
On the Buddhist Path
We are also grateful for the help and support of Ajan Dao, our teaching monk in northern Thailand. We learned much about meditation and Buddhism from him at his temple, Ban Dun, near Udon Thani. We believe success is related to a clear and untroubled mind and we try constantly to work in that direction.
