Again I go back to Wikipedia which says that , “Thai cuisine is the national cuisine of hailand. Balance, detail and variety are of paramount significance to Thai chefs. In his book The Principles of Thai Cookery, renowned celebrity chef,
writer and authority on Thai cuisine McDang wrote
for its complex interplay of at least three and up to four or five fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, bitter and spicy. Australian chef David Thompson, a prolific chef and expert on Thai food,
observed that unlike many other cuisines: “Thai food ain’t about simplicity. It’s about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish. Like a complex musical chord, it’s got to have a smooth surface but it doesn’t
matter what’s happening underneath. Simplicity isn’t the dictum here, at all. Some westerners think it’s a jumble of flavours, but to a Thai that’s important, it’s the complexity they delight in.”
pouring rain things were in a chaos. Finally, I did not get to taste any of the Pad Thai as the kids had loved it and finished it all.
My kids are thrilled about it. They keep reminding me that i have not eaten this awesome dish.etc etc…. Well I do want to eat this instead of drooling over the pics…. This is my entry for Blogging Marathon were we are on a whirlwind tour around the World in 30 days!!
