About Kasma Loha-unchit
Kasma (MBA ’75) is the founder of Thai Food and Travel, a cooking school and tour company she has run since 1985. Once Kasma Loha-unchit made up her mind to go into cooking as a profession, she put her marketing background from business school to work to diversify her product mix — not only does she offer cooking classes, but she now leads tours to her native Thailand and has written two successful cookbooks. Her books — It Rains Fishes: Legends, Traditions, and the Joys of Thai Cooking (which won the Julia Child Cookbook Award in the international category in 1995) and Dancing Shrimp: Favorite Thai Recipes for Seafood — are more than just cookbooks. “My books tell a story about the culture and colors of Thailand.”
