Bringing Thai Cuisine Back Home With You


One of the things that people miss the most when they come back home after a long vacation is the food. Trying out the dishes of a new country is one of the most underappreciated elements of any vacation. But the people who really want to take in the culture of a new place will dig right in.

There are many countries out there than offer amazing and unique food and drink. Many of the best ones are imported as delicacies and restaurant niches. Mexican, Chinese, Italian - we’re all familiar with them because we can try them out without flying to another country. But it’s always much better when you go to the country itself and try the food right there in its homeland. And there are few places in which this is truer than in Thailand.




A vacation in Thailand is seen as one of the most exotic and luxurious getaways you can embark on. And though we have a lot of Thai cuisine outlets in this country, it’s simply not as widespread as many others. But it’s easily one of the finest foreign menu exports we have.


When you’re back from a Thailand vacation, you may not feel much like celebrating. But why not take what you learned about food and drink in Thailand and share it with your friends? You should consider throwing a dinner party. Let them see the culture that you soaked in while you were on your amazing vacation.



The environment

Thai cuisine, like many great Asian cuisines, lends itself to a very particular and striking aesthetic. If you want to go all-out on a Thailand dinner party, you should consider decorating with a color scheme in mind. The best mix to go for is red, gold, black.


If you want to take it to the next level, you should consider bringing in a low table. You’ll remember that the furniture in Thailand was also minimal. Tables are often close to the floor and the seating comprised simply of cushions.

The main courses

Thai cuisine is so varied that it can be hard to decide on what main course to serve. You could, of course, do some brainstorming and come up with a selection from which your guests could select before they arrive.






But you should think back to all the great dishes you enjoyed in Thailand. What dishes did you enjoy the most? Which ones made you wish your friends had been there to try it out? Try cooking up a mix of all those dishes. You could make a buffet to make sure your friends get to try a bit of everything! And don’t forget to consider the popular condiments for Asean cuisines.

Dessert

People don’t often talk about the amazing desserts that Thai cuisine has to offer. Hopefully, you tried a bunch of amazing ones on your vacation. But a few people miss out because they stuff themselves too full of the main courses to order dessert!


Fruit and sticky rice are popular ingredients of many Thai desserts. There is also Pok Pok (ice cream sandwhich) to consider, though that’s also a popular dessert here at home!
