The Head Chef

Thongsay "Bay" Stevenson was born in Laos and has been in the kitchen since the age of 14 years, learning from her family. She progressed her career in restaurants and hotels in Laos and Thailand for over 10 years. Bay met her English husband when he opened a guesthouse, restaurant and dive school next to her cafe in Krabi, Thailand.
They moved to the UK to his home in Tiverton in 2010 where Bay started her own successful catering business mainly serving the Tiverton Pannier Market, but also doing festivals and other outside catering events. Bay has also worked as a sous chef in a popular Thai restaurant in Tiverton for 2 years and a country hotel in the area. With both Asian and Western dishes in her repertoire there is something for everyone whether sweet, sour, spicy or just plain delicious!
