Full of flavor and fiery with spice, Thai cuisine is one of the culinary gems of Southeast Asia. There is an emphasis on fresh meats, seafood and vegetables seasoned with differently flavored curry pastes and the omnipresent nam pla, or fish sauce.

Coconut milk, lemongrass, galangal and fresh herbs add unique flavors to many Thai dishes.
