Why Thai Recipes? Whether you have been to Thailand or not, as Thai food lovers, you will be on the constant look out. If Thai food is what you love, you will feel right at home here with my easy to understand step by step on how to cook your favorite Thai cuisine.
Cooking can be considered an art but luckily, even if you have never cooked before in your life, you can still learn the art of cooking. There is really nothing stopping you from being a great cook -- that is if you want to be one.
Growing up in Thailand and Malaysia, I was never allowed into my family Thai Kitchen. It is just not the place for young people to be. To be honest, we are probably considered more a nuisance than a helper (and ... who can blame them ... lol!)
However, when I further my study in Melbourne, I had to cook to survive. Eating out is way too expensive and so I eat whatever I can cook -- which I can tell you is not very much indeed.
I was very lucky though. I happened to share a house with a few Thai people who were great cooks and who were willing to pass on some skills to me.
And I became a great cook from then on? Yeah ... Right ... Of course not! However, it means that I have acquired some skills and can follow the recipes to experiment with my dishes with that...
I enjoy watching cooking shows on TV but as I have mentioned before, taste is a very individual thing. I am sure you have seen many TV cooks demonstrating cooking Thai food which is obviously "their version of that Thai dish". So, when you follow those "Thai Recipes", bear in mind that it is that particular cook's version of the dish.
Even with the Thai Recipes on this site, I can only say that they are all my version especially when you are allowed to adjust the flavors to your taste.
These are Thai food recipes that are mine and close to my heart, tested and cooked at my home kitchen using ingredients that can be found at Supermarkets or Asian Grocery Shops -- not just from the Thai Markets in Thailand.
