the buzz





Thailand is a fertile country with a varied geography and long coastline that encourages great culinary diversity. Much of the unique flavor of Thai food comes from a pleasing combination of fiery spice, aromatic herbs and piquant condiments. Chili peppers, fish sauce, shrimp paste, limes, coriander and coconut milk contribute complex flavors. Openness to trade and foreign cultures left Thais keen to the culinary splendor of India, Europe, the Middle East and China. They were quick to incorporate foreign foods (including tomatoes and chilies from the Americas) into their already rich repertoire. In Thai cooking, rice serves as the starchy foil for the flavorful soups, seafood dishes and salads created from this abundance. Thai cooks use quick preparations like stir-frying, blanching, poaching and parboiling to emphasize the freshness of choice ingredients.
