Have you ever been to Thailand? Every region in Thailand has their own specialties but they all have one thing in common - CHILI PEPPERS. That is the beauty of these 48 Best Thai Recipes is you can adjust the ingredients and heat level to your liking.

Thai Kitchen History

The basic Thai kitchens are ancient and for centuries have been upheld by the Royal Palace with many outside influences. The Palace carved the way to the ingredients used and styles of cooking in Thailand today.

Did you know it was the Portuguese that introduced Thailand to the chili? Imagine if that had not happened how very different Thai recipes would taste.

Food of North East Thailand

Rice is the major staple with Sticky rice in the country side and long grain Jasmine rice in the city. The rice is usually served along side a very small amount of fermented foods. Grilled chicken with dipping sauce and Som Tam, the green papaya salad, is served along with the sticky rice. Soups are hot and sour style soups. Hot pot, "Suki" is served like a steamboat are also popular.

Food of the North

Northern Thai curries have Burmese influences and are made without coconut milk and are fiery hot. Pork and sausages are also more prevalent in this area. Main dishes are usually always served with a sticky rice on the side. Noodles dishes are also popular.

Bangkok Food and City Central

This area is watered by many rivers and is the rice bowl of Thailand. In addition, these waterways give way to large selections of fresh water fish, crabs, and prawns. A favorite vegetable of ours that grows along the water ways is the water spinach. Have you ever tried this vegetable whilst in Thailand? Highly suggested! Bangkok (BKK) is the modern home of Royal Thai Cuisine. You probably recognize these recipes as the more classic recipes of Thai cuisine.

Food of the South

On the Malaysia border, seafood and fish are plentiful. Coconut, palm oil and pineapple are abundant as well. Yellow curries are popular. Spices such as cardamon, cumin and cloves are popular and so are delicious roti. Chinese influence includes dumplings, barbecue meats and noodles.

All we can say is everything is absolutely delicious. Try everything at least once. We could not be more delighted to enjoy the culinary influences that each group and the topography has brought to Thailand.

Thai Table Etiquette

Did you know that Thai people eat with a fork and spoon instead of chopsticks? Sometimes chopsticks are used to eat noodles. Hold the spoon in your right hand and the fork in your left hand. Use the fork to place the food on the spoon and eat from the spoon. Do not use your fork to pierce food to eat unless it is something that you would not eat with rice.

Generally speaking all Thai dishes are meant to be shared and served on a platter and always served with rice. Just try a tablespoon or two of each dish. Dishes are not generally passed around like in the Western World. Instead, it is more common for others to place a little bit on top of your rice or you to serve others closest in sitting range.
