It is not easy to get 100% positive reviews on a leading cooking website like KitchenSurfing.com, which is a community marketplace matching talented chefs with discerning clientele, many of whom are well-known celebrities. Chuck Valla, a self-taught Thai chef, gets there with his flavourful Thai food.
Chuck worked as a Chinese teacher at schools in Bangkok, before deciding to pursue his passion for fashion by taking a course in New York City. But throughout his life, he'd always found solace in the kitchen.
"I grew up in the restaurant business because that's what my family did, and I always helped my grandmother cook when I was young. She was the best cook and her Thai food was excellent. That's where I learned how to cook. I never went to proper cooking classes or anything _ I learned on the go while helping my grandmother," said Chuck, who is ranked first in the Thai food and Asian food categories on KitchenSurfing.com.
