Thai food has become, in recent years, one of the world’s favorite cuisines. It is popular in many Western countries, especially in the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as in the United States, Canada, and Japan. There are over a thousand Thai restaurants in California.

 

Thai cuisine is known for its balance of five fundamental flavors in each dish or in the overall meal - hot (spicy), sour, sweet, salty, and bitter (optional).

 

One of the most distinctive aspects of Thai cuisine is its use of fresh herbs and spices. Thailand has a long history of the use of herbs for medicinal purposes, and this in turn has permeated the ways of cooking and preparing food. With regard to the spices, some dishes are hot, but by no means all of them. Coupled with its low fat qualities and its essential freshness, this helps make Thai food one of the healthiest anywhere.

 

The following are some important herbs and spices used in our “Best Thai Cuisine”. The proper combination of all these ingredients is regarded as an art in Thai cooking, one that requires both skill and time.
