Thai Food

The major portion of Thai cuisine is highly spiced and chili hot, thanks to the addition of chilies, large and small,
some more potent than others. The burning sensation of Thai chilies has caused much fanning of mouths by stunned foreigners on their first sampling, but increased experience often brings enthusiastic approval,
as attested by the popularity of Thai restaurants today throughout the world.
Despite influence from Indian cuisine, Thai food is distinctive. The combination of spices, herbs and fresh ingredients makes dining a special experience in Thailand.

Thai meals are heavily based on rice accompanied by soup, curry and a number of side dishes followed by dessert. Dessert would most likely consist of fresh fruit (mangos, pineapples, coconuts, oranges, rose apples, durians, bananas, papayas, longans, guavas or jackfruit). Thai food blends five major tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and hot. Common spices used are: coriander seed, garlic, ginger, turmeric, lemon grass, cardamom, shallot, cumin, cinnamon, pepper, green peppers, galangal, krachai, basil and chilies, and more. The hot ingredients are chilies and pepper. Accompanying most meals are shrimp paste, fish sauce (nam pla ) and tamarind sauce. Each cook will vary the formula according to the location they come from. Most of the cooking is done in a wok (Katha), a deep cone-shaped pan ; placed over gas or charcoal stove.

Thai food is lightly cooked and remains crunchy in order to keep itĺs nutritional value and original flavour. Little fat is used and meat does not feature strongly. A Thai meal could therefore well be commended as a very ancient from of ô nouvelle cuisine ô which one would never get fat on. ( from : Exotic Thailand - Thai Culinary Art. TAT )
A Beautiful garnish of vegetable or fruit carving play an important role in Thai food presentation. In order to make the dish more attractive, a variety of forms, such as flowers, leaves, etc. are artistically carved by those who have skill and experience. All of these characteristics have made Thai food the best Asian Cuisine.
At the table, all dishes are served at the same time. The idea is to take a spoonful of rice and top it with a spoonful of one of the dishes, the foods are then eaten one by one in this combination.

Chopsticks are not used for eating Thai food. The correct method of eating is with a spoon and a fork. The fork is held in the left hand and used to push the food onto the spoon.
Recommendation. Take One Whiskey before and followed by Beer with The Meal.
