Based on a True Story
Aa-Haan Thai (Thai Food) is unique. The combination of spices, herbs, and fresh ingredients make Thai Cuisine a special experience for everyone.
A modern traveler might find quite a number of changes in the preparation of Thai dishes. These changes are mostly due to increasing foreign influence since the reign of King Rama IV. In the old days, Thai meals were often simple and consisted generally of rice accompanied by two or three side dishes. The food, lightly cooked, remained crunchy with all the nutritional value and original flavor intact. Moreover, it was served in measured quantities, prepared with very little fat, and with an emphasis on seafood rather than meat. Gradually, however, people began to cook with spices adding flavors and ultimately, as the centuries passed, it became an extremely sophisticated cuisine.
Although Thai food is distinctive and sophisticated, it remains relatively easy to prepare. Generally, Thai food still consists of rice accompanied by soup, curry, and a number of side dishes, followed by dessert. Thai food combines all five major tastes: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and spicy. Chilies and peppers are its hot ingredients while ginger, lemon grass, galangal, cumin, garlic, and basil provide the many other flavors.
