NAME OF THE RECIPE
Fried Noodles Thai Style
Although I am Dutch, I have decided to give you a Thai recipe. It is very easy to prepare. The Thai cuisine puts emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components. It is known for being spicy but balanced. Details and variety are both important in Thai cooking.
I love cooking from different kind of kitchens. Actually, I sometimes find it difficult to cook ‘proper’ Dutch food!
With my friend from New Zealand and her family, I went about three years ago to the island Koh Samui in Thailand. One of the reasons we have been friends for more then 40 years is our love for cooking. Sometimes we only talk about food when we see eachother (via Skype).
So when we saw this Siam Rice Thai Cookery School on the beach of the island, we couldn’t resist it. Standing behind our pots and pans, with the sea on my right hand side, and my friend on the other side, I could hardly be happier.
WHERE TO BUY SPECIAL INGREDIENTS
I think you can buy most ingredients in the supermarket. Or you could go to the Asian supermarket Amazing Oriental behind the PSV-stadium, in the Langdonkenstraat 7. Or visit Amazing Sang Lee on the Woenselse Markt 17a.
The teacher gave us a small cookbook, and I am copying her recipe her. Reading it, is being back in Thailand for me!
