Dish 1: Chicken Larb Noodle Salad w/ Lime Leaf Roasted Rice
While larb (pronounced la-ab) is said to have originated from Laos, it is a popular dish just across the border, in the Northeast region of Thailand. Also referred to as Isan, this part of the country has a distinctive style of cuisine that perfectly balances the spicy, sweet, sour and salty elements in their dishes. A typical Isan dish will have fresh vegetables, grilled meats and some kind of fermented salad.
Dish 2: Beef Massaman w/ Roti & Cucumber
Massaman curry is a true fusion dish combining Malaysian, Indian and Persian flavours to create one of the world’s most loved curries. The base of this curry takes the spices from these regions – including cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and star anise – and marries them with ingredients native to Thailand such as lemongrass and galangal to make a Massaman curry paste. Even with the mix of influences, the dish is considered a classic national curry.
