About Ranida Thammarin

I was born in Udon Thani in North-eastern Thailand, the youngest of five sisters. After a happy childhood, I spent four years at the university and graduated with a bachelor degree in Science major Mathematics from Mahidol University. After working for seven years in Thailand as a quality auditor, financial planner, and distributor executive I decided to come to San Francisco to get a master degree to improve my career. But along the way an amazing thing happened -Three year romance got married. With a different life and living in San Francisco I found my goals were changing. I went to school in Hospitality Management at SFSU and started getting into cooking for myself and friends. At their urging I decided to start my own Thai cooking classes.
