Author Notes

Born in Laos, Keo Sananikone was exposed at an early age to the diverse cultures and cusines of Southeast Asia. Laotian, Vietnamese, and Thai food were all prepared in the kitchen of his family home, creating a multicultural environment that would have a lasting impact on Keo, inspiring him to pursue a career in the culinary arts. After completing his education in America, Keo opened the first of three wildly successful Thai restaurants, Mekong, in 1977. Encouraged by its success, he then opened Mekong II and the grandest and most famous, Keo's Thai Cuisine in Honolulu. Today, he owns and operates five restaurants and continues to delight diners the world over.
