Since we can’t be up and trading during our usual festival season, we need to keep busy! I’m going to post a few recipes on here which people have asked for on Social. Except Sticky Spicy Beef. You’ll have to wait a very long time for that one…
I started Brother Thai back in 2015 and it’s been 5 years since and I’ve never looked back! It’s been a great way to connect my passion for Thai food and my roots in Bangkok. I’m mainly known for our Thai Rotis, which is a street food dish we created, but when I’m not at the stall, I’m still cooking up Thai food at home. It’s not always just Thai food, I’m always happy to mess around with any recipes, throw things in which I have in fridge. My ethos is, if it tastes good, you’re doing it right.
There’s already a lot of good Thai cooking resource out there already. Pok Pok (by Andy Ricker) and Thai Street Food (by David Thompson), are two great books worthy of any foodies cookshelf. And You Tube is full of amazing videos and Thai Chefs (see RinS Cookbook and Hot Thai Kitchen).
What I aim to add is my personal take on cooking and my fave dishes. At the end of the day, I’m just like everyone else. I don’t always have the right ingredients in the cupboards or I’m tired from work and want something quick. So my food has always been about making the best with what you have. Over time, as you build up a few key ingredients and learn a few new techniques, cooking Thai food becomes more intuative. Hopefully, you’ll have a few new weekly meals to your routine which you’ll love and enjoy.
