Thailand – a land of contrasts and of colour, and, more importantly, a feast of flavours. Come with us on a journey to discover the secret to cooking perfect Thai dishes and to finding the perfect balance of the five essential flavours: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy.


Pad Thai

Pad Thai or ‘Phad Thai’ is one of the most well-known and loved dishes of Thailand. This stir-fried rice noodle dish is commonly served as street food as well as at most restaurants in Thailand. It is made using fresh juicy prawns stir-fried with tofu, crunchy vegetables and translucent egg-fried rice noodles. The result is nothing short of delicious.


Chicken Satay

Satay is a very popular dish all over Southeast Asia. Any meat or vegetables can be used to make these delicious skewers, but chicken is by far the most popular. They can be grilled or barbecued and served with a variety of sauces, but the traditional peanut and soy is the most popular.


Satay (Peanut) Sauce

A deliciously savoury sauce made using ground peanuts, coconut milk, soy and spices. The perfect accompaniment to Satay Skewers, Summer Rolls and Gado Gado.
