    This Challenge showcases the Menu Planning Forum



    Blending elements of several Southeast Asian traditions, Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components. The spiciness of Thai cuisine is well known. As with other Asian cuisines, balance, detail and variety are of great significance to Thai chefs. Thai food is known for its balance of three to four fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, and bitter.

    Thai food isn't about simplicity. It's about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish. Like a complex musical chord it's got to have a smooth surface but it doesn't matter what's happening underneath. Simplicity isn't the dictum here, at all. Some westerners think it's a jumble of flavours, but to a Thai that's important, it's the complexity they delight in.

    ZWT9 - All Players Cookbook SE Asia

    XXXXXXXX


    Three common sauces are involved in this spicy two part challenge.
    ~ Fish sauce is a staple ingredient in Thai cuisine and imparts a unique character to Thai food. Fish sauce is prepared with fermented fish that is made into a fragrant condiment and provides a salty flavor.
    ~ Sweet chilli sauce is a popular condiment in Western, Thai and Malaysian cuisine. It is commonly made with chillis and some sweetening ingredient such as fruit or a refined sugar.
    ~ Sriracha is a type of hot sauce, named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in the Chonburi Province of Eastern Thailand, where it was possibly first produced for dishes served at local seafood restaurants. It is a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. The American version has a heat rating of around 2,000 scoville units, or less than half that of jalapeño peppers.


    For this challenge each player will prepare a 5 day menu and share it here. At least ONE recipe should include one or more of the featured sauces and be from the All Player SE Asia Cookbook. This recipe should be made and reviewed.

    For the Goddesses of ZWT-9, I'm here to answer the Taste of Thai Challenge. There are just a few beverage & breakfast recipes in the APC, so the Goddesses found a really fun way to make this happen icon_exclaim.gif We're going to Thailand icon_exclaim.gif We'll leave soon & go to the Angsana Laguna Phuket Resort, a modern tropical getaway on scenic Bang Tao Bay where a daily breakfast buffet is served at their Market Place dining area & bottled water flows freely -- Free is the keyword there & those 2 amenities solved our 2 problems. icon_smile.gif

    For 3 dys, we'll cook for ourselves, dine in our adjoining quarters & share Goddess recipes w/a few extras added to the mix. Ck it out icon_exclaim.gif


    For the other 2 dys, we'll also be enjoying our own recipes - But they will be prepared by the resort cook staff & served to us on our poolside veranda. Way cool, huh icon_question.gif


    We'll cook on Mon-Wed-Fri & dine in the sun on Tue & Thu. The menu that follows will end this post & I have 1 comment. From the Goddess approved recipes, I selectively chose the menu recipes (& extras) w/NO regard for ingredients. 7 had fish sauce listed, 3 had sweet chili sauce & 1 had Sriracha sauce.
