While visiting the north of Thailand, we took the opportunity Chelsie and I to learn more about the Thai cuisine. We are both in love with Thai food so we took a cooking class in Chiang Mai. We did it with Siam Rice Thai Cookery School which has been awesome!
The traditional Thai dishes use lots of herbs such as the Galangal (thai ginger), lemon grass, kaffir lime (green wrinkled fruit), turmeric, sweet basil or chili. They also use difference sauces such as the fish sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce or the black soy sauce. Most of these ingredients can be found in the west part of the world in Asian stores.
We have been impressed by how Thai food find the right balance between the sour, sweet, salty, spicy and the bitter. These 5 elements are always well used in the different dishes giving an amazing taste to the food. Try and enjoy 3 vegetarian Thai recipes below !
