Cooking Vacations In Thailand
Thai food is exotic but simple, truly based on fresh produce and seafood in flavor combinations so charming you will keep coming back for more. Like much of Southeast Asian cuisine, Thai cuisine is characterized by being lightly prepared, fresh, and combining the different flavor profiles of salty, sweet, sour, spicy, and bitter. Although Thai food does vary by region, noodles and rice are prevalent, served with light broths or complex sauces, meat or seafood, and of course fresh vegetables and herbs.
Despit being such a popular destination, Thailand retains it unique character; its culture is rich, its people are known for their carefree demeanors and quick smiles. Thailand, unlike most of its neighbords, was never colonized, although you will find many influences (mostly Asian) in Thai cuisine. Cuturally, you will find much to see on your culinary tour of Thailand. The country is largely Buddhist, resulting in many beautiful “wats,” or temples in the cities of Thailand. Outside the cities you can find lush forests full of exotic animals and majestic waterfalls, and of course the coastline and islands are known for their crystal-clear waters.
Thailand is so popular that many people who travel there decide never to leave, or to come back permanently in their retirement!
