Postbox letter from Darron
Fortunately I've never had a hankering for Western food here and I think after three years in Thailand I've forgotten what the inside of a supermarket looks like.
Boring yes, but never a dish to be underestimated
How many times have I been out for dinner with a group of Thai friends and that enormous bowl of khao pat gai has saved the day?
Is it really all it's cracked up to be?
What is it about Thai street food that brings tourists, travelers and even long-term Thailand expats to virtual orgasm? I would genuinely love to know why.
Going vegan for 10 days in Thailand
To "gin jae" means that one not only avoids meat, dairy, honey, or eggs, but also abstain from alcohol, garlic, onions, and sometimes coffee
Some fascinating historical aspects of Thai food
The contribution of the royal court to the cooking of Thai food is perhaps more significant than in any other nation.
The amazing characteristics and flavors of Thai food
The food most Thai people eat everyday reflects the simple, labor- intensive lifestyle of the paddy fields. Many families cook in an outside kitchen and Thais only consider a meal a meal if it is served with rice.
My take on the highs and lows of Thai cuisine
My relationship with Thai food is quite complicated. My initial exposure to the cuisine occurred when I was quite young. In fact, I was so young that I didn't even know that it was Thai food. Hell, I only new Thailand from the tags on clothing.
Thailand - where food and hospitality go hand in hand
I will always remember Thai generosity, and I will certainly never forget Thai food.
Why I decided to start eating insects
I have a pretty healthy diet. I exercise a lot, I don't smoke or drink and I much prefer a good dinner to a piece of cheesecake or an ice cream, so giving up beef was purely to do with its environmental impact.
Is it becoming more and more difficult?
My long held belief that Thai food was generally very healthy has diminished fast. The diet of rice is generally healthy- the accoutrements of creamy sauces and fried meats are not.
