How many authentic Thai dishes have you tried I the past month? We’re not talking about something a friend cooked and she believed it came from a Thai inspired recipe. We are talking about authentic Thai food cooked just as it would by in private kitchens in Thailand. How many of those authentic Thai dishes have you tasted lately?
If you haven’t been exposed to a lot of authentic Thai dishes, you may not realize that the sauces used in each meal are a central part of the Thailand cuisine. A lot of the dishes cooked in this cuisine use very basic, natural ingredients readily found in the Thailand culture.
So, you have a lot of dishes based on chicken and fish with very few based on beef. There is a reason for this! Thailand is not a land full of beef and it is just not a food source that is commonly used. That is why authentic Thai dishes are more likely to focus on chicken or fish. Many meals are actually served with both of these proteins on the table at once.
