While Thai food has a reputation for being spicy, Thai food is actually based on a balance between different flavors including spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.  This goes beyond simply combining the flavors within an individual dish to incorporate the contrast in flavors between two or three different dishes, which is one reason Thai’s share meals and eat family style.

Thai food is not particularly difficult to prepare.  In fact, Thai food recipes are quite straightforward. Click here for few of the popular recipes. Experiment and adjust the recipes as you wish. Bon Appétit!
