Banana Leaf Kitchen
Pan-Asian cooking parties, cooking classes, and catering.
Xin Chào!
We're Thảo and Lisa--two home cooks from the Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls area.

Over the past few years, we've nurtured our love of cooking and Asian food by looking for any excuse to cook for our friends and family. Now, we're excited to bring our passion into your kitchen.

We can't wait to cook with you!

Hẹn gặp các bạn tại Banana Leaf Kitchen,

Thảo & Lisa


Thảo is a Vietnam native who moved to the US about two years ago. Longing for the tastes of home, she started to cook her favorite dishes in her own kitchen, and she is excited to share her Vietnamese recipes with the Chippewa Valley.

Thảo learned to cook from her mother, who she hopes will one day move to the US and join the Banana Leaf adventures.


Lisa, Thao's cousin-in-law, is an East-coast native who has lived in the Midwest for 12+ years. She attributes her love of cooking to her father, an adventurous home chef, and her grandparents, who's home was a endless buffet of Jewish comfort foods.
