Description: Thai cuisine is light, fresh and traditionally seasoned with chili peppers and aromatic herbs, a gourmet delight for those who know and love good food. It also has a temper. It can be as spicy hot (but not as heavy) as fiery Indian food or as gently flavored as Chinese. Happily, Thai cuisine is a pleasant contrast between the two. You can have it "spicy hot or spicy not." You decide.
The secret of Thai cooking is to maintain a delicate balance between the spices and main ingredients so that one does not overwhelm the other. Perfection comes with practice, and tasting; tasting is the key to success. Texture and color contrast is also important. These recipes will show you how.
Thai cuisine is amazingly versatile. One dish can have as many as seven or more variations. Although beef, chicken, pork and seafood are most often used, vegetarian dishes are equally popular. What a fine challenge for creative cooks.
Thai seasonings may seem complex. They're not. Many are your everyday favorites . . . garlic, onion, basil, coriander, ginger, mint, chili peppers, curry ... plus Thai's own lemon grass, eggplant, kaffir lime leaves ... It's the blend, the balance that counts ... the magic that turns American fried chicken to Thai fried chicken. Exotic! Sophisticated! Delicious! It's all here!
And now to the kitchen.
