  • Some of you might remember I have two sons. The younger one, Anthony, is now in college in Tampa. Anthony was born on the same day as his cousin, Corrine, who lives in New Jersey.

You are now wondering why I am telling you all of this, I’ll bet.

  • Chef Kriangsak Srimonde works hard seven days a week to prepare the creative cuisine of his native Thailand, but in his spare time, he is an avid Florida Gator and Tampa Bay Bucs fan.

    Rough-and-tumble football might seem an unlikely sport to attract this gentle man, who has such a deft hand at presenting a kaleidoscopic array of dishes perfectly seasoned with aromatic Jasmine rice, coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger and tamarind and a myriad of other exotic herbs and spices.
