I know nothing about Thai food. Actually, I know I like it. That’s about it. And that Mrs. Show-Me Eats loves it to. There’s that.
But beyond that, nada. I’ve never made a chili paste, never cooked with lemongrass. But we are planning a trip to Thailand in the fall, so I need to get with the program.
That brings me to my question for the more Thai-minded: How should I structure a crash course on the cuisine? Regionally? Historically? By ingredient?
A copy of “Thai Food” is on its way. What else is essential reading?
