If you are a gourmand, then here is something you shouldn’t miss.
The Royal Thai Consulate in Guangzhou is bringing a Thai kitchen to Guangdong.
Cooking show ’Thai Kitchen to Guangdong’ is aimed at promoting Thai cuisine to the locals and introducing the links between Cantonese and Thai cuisine.
The event was opened for anyone who loves Thai culture and cuisine. After public auditions for guest cooks, 10 groups of local foodies were selected to learn how to cook authentic Thai cuisine with chefs from Thai Alley and Mango Tree.
Because of the historical link, many of the Thai cooking methods have been adopted from China.
Ms. Natenapa Kongsri, Consul-General of the Royal Thai Consulate in Guangzhou, said that Cantonese and Thai people have been trading cooking styles and ingredients for generations.
Traders from both regions often traveled between the two countries, bringing spices and cooking techniques to the other. You can taste it in Thai cooking today.
In this episode, Yvonne, who is a stay-at-home mom of two in Guangzhou, works hand in hand with Chef Surachat to make pomelo salad.
Pomelo salad is a fresh traditional Thai dish that can be easily prepared at home. Although hugely popular in Thailand, this salad is rarely found on the menus of Thai restaurants outside of the kingdom. So more reason to learn this unique and delicious salad at home!
‘Thai kitchen to Guangdong’ covers 10 classical and traditional Thai dishes: Lemon Steamed Fish, Tom Yum Kung, Thai Curry Crab, Green Curry Chicken, Pad Thai, Thai Red Curry Duck, Shrimp Cake, Mango Sticky Rice, Pomelo Salad, and Thai Style Pork Salad.
You can find out more about how to make authentic Thai cuisine at home on the official channels of the Royal Thai Consulate in Guangzhou on Wechat, Weibo and Facebook.
