My name is Chad Barney, people call me Chad. I have been cooking in family-owned and operated restaurants since I was 8 years old. I grew up in California, Los Angeles, and have lived in New York City since 2009. I learned original Thai recipes from my mother, aunts and other relative working in our family kitchens. As a personal chef I focus on healthy cooking less oil, less sugar or no sugar at all but use the sweetness for vegetables and natural sweetener such as palm sugar.
