CLASSIC FOOD RECIPES

I've selected recipes for classic main courses that are popular around the world, and that are easy to cook too. Also, people cooking for smaller numbers will benefit particularly if most of the meal elements can be cooked in one pot and any surplus food frozen for consumption at a later date.

THAI CUISINE & ORIENTAL STYLES

Here are some of my favourite dishes from my native Thailand and also some other classics from the Far East. I've included some East/West fusion dishes too. I hope you will try them and enjoy them.

I would encourage people to visit ethnic Asian grocery stores for ingredients that come direct from Asia to sample the very best of this cuisine. In particular, oyster sauce, pad thai sauce, and soy sauces will come in more practical and economic sizes, and exotic curry pastes like massaman, panang, thai green curry and thai red curry can be found in more economic sizes too.
