Leela Punyaratabandhu


Longing for the taste of home, Leela Punyaratabandhu (pronounced boon-yuh-ruht-tuh-puhn) has spent the past several years testing and refining her favorite Thai recipes using the ingredients which she can find in the United States.

Her award-winning blog SheSimmers.com was created in November 2008 in the memory of Leela’s mother, the cookbook addict, who inspired her love for cooking.

Leela’s interests include linguistics, ancient manuscripts, intercultural communications, and history (especially the culinary history of Thailand). She’s also a freelance writer and recipe developer.

Her writing has appeared on various publications including CNN, Wall Street Journal, Serious Eats, and Food52.
