Thai Food in Your Own Kitchen

What is it about Thai food that has so many of us enthralled? I can answer that with four words—hot, sour, salty, and sweet. In most Thai dishes you can find some kind of combination of all of these taste components. In addition to the contrast of flavors, you’ll also find a contrast of textures. How fun is that? Think for example of bright herbal soups, savory curries, crunchy salads, slurpy noodles, spicy dips, and beautiful tropical fruit to name a few.

Street food found in Thailand is some of the best in the world. Some favorites from my travels include spring rolls, grilled satay, salty fish cakes, and sweet sticky rice in baggies along with the best fried chicken I’ve ever eaten in my life.

Lucky for us, it’s easier nowadays than in years past to find the ingredients to recreate excellent Thai food in your own kitchen. Rice and mung bean noodles, curry pastes, coconut milk, fish sauce, and chili sauce are now common and you need to find some room for them in your pantry. Along with some fresh veggies and a variety of proteins, a taste of Thailand can be yours! So challenge yourself to roll up your sleeves and explore the incredible flavors that the cuisine of Thailand has to offer.

  • Hi, I bought a Thailand food item that resembles the white food item in the photo on DL web page. It’s in with all those assorted food items and is the only white one. Can someone please help me by identifying it? I thought the name was on the product label but it’s simply name of provider.

    1. Hello, Colleen.
      If I’m looking at the same item you are looking at. Next to the green papaya …it is Thai Young Coconut. The young coconut meat is mild and
      sweet. Unlike mature coconuts, you’ll be delighted with the sweet flavor and refreshing water.
      Thanks for reaching out.
