When Chef Cosmo Meens graduated from high school, he went traveling around the world.  Well, his intention was to do this...instead he started in Thailand and pretty much stayed there the whole time. One of the reasons was the amazing, fresh, and complex food.  He looks forward to the day he is able to go back there and feast once again. Until then, he does his best to re-create some of those amazing flavours!
