I am Warunee from
Petchabun, which is about 200 miles north and very slightly east of
Bangkok, as the 'Siamese Fireback Pheasant' flies. Of course those of
you who are ornithologists will know that a more scientific name for
this pheasant is 'Lophura
Diardi' and that their flight path may not be identical to that of a
to my web site,
which is dedicated to bringing you the most authentic Thai food
Having said that, you may
have been told that in certain parts of Thailand, we eat fried insects
and other things that may not sound very pleasant. This is
completely true and maybe that is just a little too authentic for you? Since frying
an insect hardly justifies a recipe, I will focus on foods not designed
to scare you, your family or your guests.
You may think that there
are a lot of sources for Thai recipes already. You are right. The only
reason that I decided to get involved in this project was because of
friends, both Thai and foreign, who insisted that the food I cooked for
them was better than anything they had ever eaten before. At first I
thought they were just being kind, but they continue to tell me this,
and perhaps more convincingly, they do still keep coming back when I
invite them around for a meal.
recipes I am going to present are exactly as I cook them. I have not
adapted them for western or anyone else's palates, just my own.
cases I think you will like them as presented, however I have noticed
that restaurants in the west, tend to cut the amount of chili used
considerably and they often add more sugar than we would normally use in
Thailand. Many restaurants in Thailand do the same thing if they observe
amongst their customers.
There is nothing wrong
with altering recipes to make them more enjoyable for yourself. You
should eat what you like. I know several Thais who do not like their
food to be as fiery as many of us do. Of course not every dish I cook is
laced with Chili.
Enjoying any meal, be it
Thai or otherwise, depends on a number of factors, not just the taste of
the food. Presentation and atmosphere are also important. You can access
my observations on this and some recipes, from the contents menu on the
left side of this page near the top.
hope you find these recipes are as delicious as my friends say they are.
Maybe you would like to bookmark this page now, so that you can find it
again, when your taste-buds are telling you that they need to be
immersed in some Siamese cuisine.
If you click on the leaf on
the left, near the top of this page, entitled
you will see details of the ebook, I have written containing many more
of my recipes.
