Support your local Thai fresh market

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.


All hail the mighty khao pat gai

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?


What's with the fuss about street food?

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.


The Jae Festival

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


Thai cuisine and The Royal Court

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.


What's cooking, teacher?

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.


Simply Thai food

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.


How delicious is Thai food really?

Thailand - where food and hospitality go hand in hand

I will always remember Thai generosity, and I will certainly never forget Thai food.


Khao Pad Malang

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.


Eating healthy in Thailand

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.
