Watcharee will be sharing her sauces at the Yarmouth Clam Festival on July 17-19 in Yarmouth, Maine.  Please stop by booth 128 on the North Yarmouth Academy lawn to say hello and try our sauces, including the new pad Thai sauce with crispy wontons.   We will have a special price for our sauces at the festival.

To help promote the 50th Annual Yarmouth Clam Festival, on July 16 at 6:15 a.m. Watcharee will be doing a television cooking demonstration on WCSH in Portland, Maine of air-fried Maine steamers and pad Thai sauce. Wake up early and tune in to Channel 6!


Our fall pop-up cooking class will be on October 4 at O'Maine Studios in Portland. Students will learn how to make two authentic main dishes.   Menus will be revealed 48 hours before the event.  Here's a hint - you will be making a dish using Maine's most recognized seafood.  Class limited to 15 persons.  Cost is $119 per person which includes a traditional Thai patterned apron designed by Watcharee, a tote bag for first time students, ingredients, recipes and a jar of WATCHAREE's pad Thai sauce.  Please visit thaiculinaryarts.com for more information and registration.
