"Chariya's culinary flair is as heart-full and vibrant and soulful as she is. Pulling from her Thai roots and background, her California sensibilities and naturalist intelligence and her brave fiery approach to life, her art-as-food is both channeled and savant-like in its deliciousness. Eating her food is like stepping into another world, nutrient-rich and sensually delightful."
- Alanis Morissette
Chariya grew up in Bangkok, Thailand and moved to Carmel, California at nine years old. The proud daughter of two cooks, Chariya now lives in L.A. with her daughter, Samantha and husband, Stephen. As those who have attended her recent sold-out POP-UP restaurants know… she's all about the international flavors.
