RECIPES - Thai

Sour, sweet, spicy, bitter, and salty: authentic Thai cuisine is all about striking a balance between these five key flavours. Thai people don’t just pay attention to how the food tastes, but also how it feels, looks and smells. Traditional Thai food is known for its tangy tamarind sauce, spicy chicken broth, springy coriander and Thai basil, silky coconut milk and succulent pork. Thai food is also famed for having the most delectable salads including Som Tam and beef salad. Alternatively, take your pick of the coconut-fuelled curries of the south, the aromatic cuisine of the capital, and the fiery stir-fries of Isan in the northeast, from our collection of best Thai recipes. You will also find simple tips to create the perfect homemade Pad Thai, beef green curry or lamb Masaman curry. Read more »
