Chef Kitty Ashi

About the Chef

Chef Ashi grew up in Thailand. Almost everyone in her family worked in the restaurant business - from street carts to full service restaurants. Chef Ashi began her culinary career at the young age of six, when she would help her aunt shop for ingredients, as well as prep and cook some foods. "I learned by watching my mom and chef cook at my Mom's restaurant, Chef Ashi tells us."

Chef Ashi has been in the United States for 10 years now, working in many restaurants (15 hour days for 6 days a week), until finally opening her own with her sous chef Chef Pooh.

Chef Ashi says one of her favorite dishes to prepare is lemonglass chilli tofu, Braised Beef noodle soup. "Fresh ingredients make a dish more interesting."
