The cuisine of northern Thailand is both traditional and constantly changing, and it is renowned for its herbal tastes, simple meals, hot dips, and hearty noodles. To learn how to make dishes like Muslim-style khao soi, a mild coconut beef curry with boiled and crispy fried noodles, spiced fish steamed in banana leaves to an almost custard-like texture, or the intense, numbingly spiced meat salads known as laap, travel province by province, village by village, and home by home.
This voyage may alter what we think of when we think of Thai food because it includes numerous dishes that have never been documented in English and glimpses into the historical and cultural influences that have produced this region's exquisite cuisine.
