Growing interest internationally in the therapeutic value of herbs and spices has also helped popularise Thai cuisine. A large number are indigenous to the country, and many more have long been cultivated here. They have a long tradition of use in medicine, and consequently cooks understand their therapeutic qualities in addition to their flavours. Coriander, in all its forms, is probably the most widely used herb.

Thai out some exotic flavours

Articles |  

THE beauty of Thai food is in its contrasts - hot, cool, sour, sweet, crunchy and soft and all with a wonderful citrus tang. If you've ever been on holiday to Thailand, you'll notice there are restaurants and food stalls everywhere you look, filling the air with wonderfully exotic smells. The tropical monsoon climate is responsible for the abundance of fruit and vegetables they can grow, which includes varieties of everything we get in the West and at least 50 per cent more. The country's location means there have been many outside influences on the language, culture, religion and cuisine, all combined to create a style of their own. The Thai diet is very healthy.

Some Thoughts on Thai and American Fusion Approaches to Food

Articles |  

Various fusion approaches to food are more or less well-known, but Thai peanut sauce in America appears to be an interesting example of developing a product to market as authentic which does not correlate for the most part with food in Thailand. Peanuts are used in Thailand in many dishes, but generally in a form different from the products found in America.

Thai food is also widely known for health benefits, and many studies support this ...
