The Art of Thai Cooking


The adage of Thai cooking is simple:

Cook with your tongue!


In traditional Thai cuisine, recipes are more like guidelines, and each chef is free to deviate to compensate for a particular ingredient’s flavor changes or to fit a new locale. In fact, many Thai chefs have difficulty with western cooking because, in Thailand, there are no measuring cups.

Thai chefs learn to cook by watching and helping in the kitchen… by “internalizing the system” instead of by following written instructions. This is why you will find such a wide variation between restaurants.

The Thai Cusine places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge!

The Flavours of Thai Cusine


The four essential flavors of Thai cuisine:
  • SALTY: fish sauce, shrimp paste.
  • SPICY: chilies, pepper.
  • SOUR: lime, tamarind.
  • SWEET: palm sugar, fruits.

Every dish in Thai cuisine incorporates at least two of these – sometimes all four. One flavor may be dominant, but the others will be there too, like notes in a chord.

That’s what makes Thai food so interesting!
