Thai food has become a popular cuisine all around the world. It is (at least some dishes) easy to prepare, very tasty and on top of it all, really healthy. The amount of recipes is sheer endless, due to the four regional Thai cooking cuisines which contain, each for themselves, more different foods than most national cuisines in the world.
The four different regional cuisines correspond to the four regions of Thailand, which are:
- Northern Thai food coming from the lush green valleys and mountains of northern Thailand
- Central Thai food coming from the flat and wet rice-growing plains including Ayuttayah and Bangkok
- Isan food, which comes from the northeast, influenced by Laos and the Khmer cuisine to it’s south.
- Southern Thai food, the cuisine of the Isthmus of Kra, enveloped by tropical waters with its many islands – the area where our cooking school is located.
What all four different cuisines have in common, is their unique approach to taste. Traditionally, Thai food has to appeal to at least three of the five taste senses, which are: Sweet, sour, spicy, bitter and salty. Thai peoples delight in food is not simplicity, but complexity, of taste. An array of disparate ingredients are carefully balanced to provide a firework for the senses.
