Meet the owner

Before he came to Canada from Thailand, De Thai Cuisine’s Peerachat Promcharoenwatana, also known as King, could not cook. His culinary skills were limited to instant noodles and his wife Pern wasn’t much better. But King’s mother, Kalayarat Promcharoenwatana was a fabulous cook, and she taught them everything she knew. “I’m proud of my mom,” says King. “I never realized what I grew up eating every day was going to be this popular.” The restaurant has been highly praised by city food writers.

When King arrived in Calgary 20 years ago, he worked in his sister’s restaurant where he met Pern. He went on to get his professional cooking diploma at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology but didn’t end up using it, instead managing the business. Pern is head chef of both De Thai and the couple’s other restaurant, Thai Nongkhai. She ensures all the dishes are true to King’s mother’s recipes as his mother has happily retired.
