It is the distinctive and undeniable flavours and aromas that makes Thai cuisine quintessentially ‘THAI’. And this is due to the use of local and fresh ingredients, which we are fortunate enough to have in abundance. One of the strengths of Thai food is that it is accessible to lots of people in their local supermarkets around the world. There are some excellent curry pastes available so most people can conjure up a home-cooked style Thai green curry, for example, with little more than a tin of coconut milk, some vegetables, jasmine rice and good quality curry condiment. Thai food doesn’t have to be pretentious or “deconstructed”. For sure I adapt dishes, to my own ideas of creativity and to also balance some of the stronger flavours to a western palate. But the appeal of Thai food is that it is inclusive and not exclusive. Now we see the independent creative streak that runs through the younger generation of Thai chefs as something I believe helps amplify the popularity of Thai food globally. It is a bold cuisine. Chefs are becoming more daring now and are confident in mixing flavours, methods and ingredients in ways we never experienced before. Certainly, the success of a new generation of restaurants such as Suay’s is due to the experimentation mixing the composition of Thai traditional tastes and European cooking. Intricate flavours and stimulating consistencies of our dishes underline Thai cuisine. People love something different, yet, well within the comfort zone of the intricate flavours and stimulating consistencies that underline Thai cuisine.

Celebrated every year in Northeast Thailand, Phi Ta Khon is a ghostly festival, unique to the Isaan culture where musical and colourful processions of masked villagers pack the streets and rockets fill the sky for three days before the villagers meet at the local temple to listen to the monks recite the message of Lord Buddha. The most recognised feature of the Phi Ta Khon, or Ghost festival, is the colourful parade of locals who dance and strike poses while wearing huge masks creatively made from carved coconut-tree trunks, topped with wicker sticky-rice steamers that make them appear taller and more grotesque. The Phi Ta Khon Festival comes along with another colourful event known as ‘Bun Luang’ or ‘Bun Pawat’. Both take place in Dan Sai district in Loei province (about 450km from Bangkok). This year, the Bun Luang and Phi Ta Khon Festival will take place from 16-18 June. It is thought the event has its origins in a fertility festival but these days it’s part of a two-day merit-making event. It is one of the most popular festivals of Isan alongside other events, such as, the Bun Bang Fai rocket festival.

Fruit of centuries of trade and travel 世纪贸易交流的融合
24 l 24 LIFE M a g a z i n e
Centuries of trade between east and west combined with the regional geopolitics and itinerant nobility brought to Siam multifarious tastes, recipes and methods that have been caught and processed over time by local innovative culinary artists who nurtured this refined and harmonious cuisine as we know it today
ver the centuries Thai cuisine has become an amalgamation of tastes taken from neighboring regions, fused with ingredients brought to the country from far and wide. Early Chinese settlers brought with them the now ubiquitous noodle, and also the practice of stirfrying and deep-frying. Prior to this, Thai cooking usually involved the process of baking, stewing and grilling. The cuisine could be said to have been bland when compared to the multifarious tastes we now see in Thailand, but the itinerant nobility in the 17th and 18th centuries brought back from their travels new ingredients and cooking styles. Foreign traders and visitors to what was then known as Siam also helped to expand on the variations of dishes, notably the Portuguese who brought the almost ever-present chili pepper and the British and other European nations who brought a range of spices during the spice trade years. Following the influx of new ingredients, we might say the table was set for Thai cuisine, and the innovative culinary artists of the country began creating some of the most eclectic and daring dishes the world has ever seen.
Following these influences of taste came changes in eating propriety in the 19th century. The Kings of Thailand, notably King Mongkut (Rama IV) and King Chulalongkorn (Rama V), brought back from European visits what could be called modernizing influences such as eating with cutlery rather than hands, and the use of furniture designed for the dining room.
东西方之间几个世纪的贸易交流，加上 独特的区域优势和贵族的流动性为暹罗的食物 带来了多样化的口味，配方和调制方法。这些 食谱和方法一直由当地创新烹饪艺术家加以处 理，就成为了我们今天所熟知的各种精致美食 几个世纪以来，泰国美食已经和周围国家 的口味慢慢的融合，将泰国的美食广泛的传播
Thais today eat mostly with a fork and spoon, a practical application given that most Thai dishes don’t require large pieces of meat to be cut. Traditionally chopsticks were only used by the ThaiChinese, although today the use of these utensils is found mostly in small roadside restaurants selling variations of noodle dishes. Such noodle restaurants you will find in any corner of the nation, but each region of Thailand – the North, North-East, Central and South – cast its own spell on Thai cuisine.
到各个国家。 早期中国的定居者为泰国带来了现在无处 不在的面条，还有炒菜和油炸的做法。 在此之 前，泰式烹饪通常以烘烤，炖和烧烤为主。 与现在，在泰国看到的各种口味相比，以 前的美食可以说是太平淡了，子宫、从17世纪 和18世纪时，贵族出行，他们在旅行中带回了 新的配料和烹饪方法。 许多外国商人和游客也为当时的暹罗带来 了众多菜肴，尤其是葡萄牙人，他们带来了几 乎永远存在的辣椒，英国和其他欧洲国家在贸 易期间也为泰国带来了一系列香料。
It’s important to note that foreigners may only experience generic Thai food in restaurants dotted around touristic areas, but this is mainly Central Thai food. Exploring local markets and small local eateries you will find more traditional dishes.
随着新食材的涌入，我们可以说桌子是为 泰国菜而设的，这个国家菜肴的创新烹饪开始 创造一些世界上从未见过的最大胆的菜肴。 在19世纪，随着这些口味的影响，当地 的饮食习惯也发生了变化。 泰国国王，特别是 King
（拉玛五世），在出访欧洲时中带回了所谓的 现代化的改变，比如用餐具而不是手吃饭，以 及使用餐厅家具。
般情况下，筷子只有泰国的华人使用，不过今 天这些餐具，已经被各种出售面条的小型路边 餐馆所熟知。但是泰国的每个地区北部、东北 部、中部和南部在饮食上都有着当地特有的特 色。 特别值得注意的是，外国人在旅游区周围 的餐馆体验的一般是泰国普通的食物，这些主 要以泰国中部食物为主。 如果去探索当地市场 和当地小餐馆，您会发现更多的传统菜肴。

Northern Thai food or Lanna cuisine 泰北美食、兰纳美食 Northern Thailand, with its capital in Chiang Mai, borders Myanmar and Laos. Before it was annexed into the kingdom of Siam, this region was known as the Kingdom of Lanna, a reason you may hear people calling traditional food, “Lanna cuisine.”
his cuisine is largely influenced by the various ethnicities coming from surrounding areas, such as the Shan people, Lao, Burmese and several hill tribes. This mountainous area of Thailand is rich as a source of vegetables, fruits and herbs, although it’s not known as a source of coconuts. This is the reason why the traditional curries in the region tend to be bitter, spicy, and often quite intense. They might be served with one of the region’s abundant freshwater fish, grilled meat, and gelatinous (sticky) rice. A northern Thai staple is, “nam prik”, which transliterates roughly as “chili dip”. While variations of
this dip can be found all over Thailand, the north’s main additions to the palette of Thai dips are “nam prik ong” and the “nam prik num.” The former is tomato based, containing mashed chili, garlic, shallots, shrimp paste and ground pork, and the latter is made of roasted green chili, onions and garlic. Not surprisingly these can be spicy, so are often accompanied with cold boiled cucumber, eggplant, lettuce or any number of green vegetables. As an addition, you’ll usually find pork crackling nearby or “sai oua” – an often-spicy pork sausage mixed with herbs. The Burmese introduced two dishes that offer some respite from the intense spice and bitterness, those of “geng hanlay” – sweet stewed pork curry with ginger, tamarind juice and peanuts - and “khao soy” - a sweet yellow curry with fried and boiled egg noodles, coconut milk, pork or chicken.

泰国北部首府清迈，与缅甸和老挝接壤。 在它被并入暹罗王国之前，这个地区被称为兰纳王国，这也是人 们称传统食物为“兰纳美食”的原因。 这里的菜肴在很大程度上受来自周边地区的不同种族的影响，如掸族人，老挝人，缅甸人和几个山地部 落。 泰国的这个山区成为了新鲜蔬菜，水果和草本植物的重要来源地区。尽管这里不被称为椰子的来源地。但 是该地区的传统咖喱味道倾向于苦，辣，口味相当烈。 他们会将其和淡水鱼，烤肉和糯米一起作为主食。 泰国北部的主食是“nam prik”，其大致音译为“辣椒酱”。 尽管泰国各地都可以见到这种蘸酱，但北部对泰 国蘸酱颜色的变化，主要“nam prik ong”和“nam prik num”。前者是基于番茄的，含有辣椒，大蒜，青葱， 虾 酱和碎猪肉，后者由烤绿辣椒，洋葱和大蒜制成。 毫不奇怪，这些辛辣的食物常常伴有黄瓜片，蒸茄子，生菜 和其他绿色蔬菜。除了这些，您通常会在附近发现有点像香肠的“sai oua” –是一种混合香草、味道辛辣的猪肉 香肠。 缅甸人也带来了两种菜肴，它们的菜肴为烈性的香料和苦味提供了一些喘息的机会，“geng hanlay” – 用 姜，罗望子汁和花生炖咖喱猪肉，以及“khao soy” -椰奶咖喱汤外加鸡蛋 面条，猪肉或鸡肉。

Southern cuisine, the spiciest of all 最辣的南部美食
28 l 24 LIFE M a g a z i n e
GAENG TAI PLA
The cuisine of the south tends to be influenced by Malaysian and Indonesian tastes. Many of the dishes consist of watery or thick coconut-based curries, and many of those are incredibly spicy. Given the proximity to the ocean you’ll find plenty of seafood in the dishes, with perhaps the most traditional southern dish being “gaeng tai pla” – a very hot and pungent curry made with fermented fish.
he reason for its pungency is “tai pla” sauce, a combination of shrimp paste – a southern specialty – as well as various herbs and spices. The dish will come with vegetables and may or may not have coconut milk added to it. “Gaeng som”, known as Thai sour curry (the tamarind gives it the sourness) can also be hard on the unfamiliar palate. These spicy, strange-smelling curries are usually off the menu, so to speak, to foreigners due to their heat and sourness, but some southern dishes have been successfully exported into the mainstream of Thai cuisine. One of those is “gaeng matsaman” – a dish quite similar to some Indian curries due to the familiar taste of coriander. It’s often served with stewed beef and potatoes and is generally not too spicy. Another popular dish, comparable to the Indian biryani, is “khao mok”. Chicken or pork satay served with peanut sauce, also originates in the south.
南部的美食往往受到马来西亚和印度尼西亚口味的影响。 许多菜肴由浓椰子汁加咖喱组成，辛辣的味 道令人难以置信。 由于靠近海洋，您的菜肴会有大量的海鲜，所以南部最传统的菜肴 “gaeng tai pla” - 一 种用咖喱制成的非常辛辣的鱼汤。 它的辛辣的原因是“tai pla”酱，里面包含虾酱 –是南方的特产，外加上各种草药和香料。 这道菜还会 配上新鲜的蔬菜，您可以选择是否添加椰奶。 “Gaeng som” 被称为泰式酸咖喱（罗望子的酸味）也很难在 味觉上和它媲美。 辛辣、奇异的咖喱味道，由于它们的热和酸，通常不会出现在外国人的菜单上。但一些南方菜已成功 的走到泰国菜的流行席中。 其中“gaeng matsaman” -这道菜非常类似于印度的咖喱。 它通常搭配炖牛肉和 土豆，味道一般不太辣。 另一种比较受欢迎的菜肴，也是印度的传统菜肴，是“khao mok”。 鸡肉或猪肉沙 爹配花生酱，这也是来自南方的美食。
Central Thai food, the most common and accessible 最常见的泰国中部的食物。 Central Thai cuisine almost runs the entire gamut of Thai dishes you’ll find in many restaurants with a sign outside saying, “Thai Food.” The region includes the capital of Bangkok, so its diverse cuisine is able to draw food from all other regions.
30 l 24 LIFE M a g a z i n e
Central Thai food also includes arguably Thailand’s most eaten dish in “phad krapow” – stir-fried meat with Thai holy basil cooked with soy sauce, chili and garlic. It also includes the composite dish, “phad pak ruam”, which is basically any number of stir-fried mixed vegetables served with or without meat.
PHAD KRAPOW Often, you’ll find people in this region eating the dish with an omelet (sometimes stuffed with ground pork) or simply with an egg on top. The food is accessible to most people, which is the reason it’s the staple cuisine served in tourist areas.
GAENG KIEW WAAN
till, the center of the country can lay claim to perhaps Thailand’s most famous curries: “Gaeng kiew waan” – the sweet, rich, curry cooked with green chilis and Thai basil; “gaeng phanaeng” – an even richer curry (but very mild), cooked with special phanaeng curry paste, coconut milk and a mix of herbs and spices; “tom yam” – the famous hot and sour soup mixed with a redolent combination of healthy herbs and spices (with or without coconut milk).
泰式中部菜肴几乎贯穿了泰国菜的全部范畴，您会在许多餐厅外面看到一个标有“泰国菜”的标志。该地 区的首府是曼谷，因此想要发现其他更多的菜肴可以从其他地方开始。 尽管如此，这里有着泰国最着名的咖喱：“Gaeng kiew waan” - 用绿色辣椒和泰国罗勒烹制的甜美，浓 郁的咖喱汤; “gaeng phanaeng” - 一种更加丰富的咖喱（但味道非常温和），用特制的咖喱酱，椰奶和草药 香料烹制而成; “冬阴功” – 著名的酸辣汤混合了健康草药和香料（可以选择是否加入椰奶）。 泰国中部美食还包括泰国最受欢迎的“phad krapow”用泰式圣罗勒叶和酱油，辣椒和大蒜炒肉。 还有 炒青蔬“phad pak ruam”，它是任意选取几种蔬菜，外加蚝油混合炒熟。 通常情况下，你会发现在这个地区的人会将煎卷（有时加猪肉）或者只是在上面放一个鸡蛋来吃这道 菜。 这是一种非常普通的食物，任何一个旅游区您都能找到。

spicy and pungent 以辛辣为主的东北美食
32 l 24 LIFE M a g a z i n e
Issarn is the area in the North-East of Thailand, a dry and hot part of the country influenced by Lao and Khmer cultures. Like the North of Thailand, in a traditional sense, they are sticky rice eaters, rather than jasmine rice eaters.
he food tends to be spicy and pungent, with “pla ra” (an acrid smelling fermented fish) finding its way into many of the curries. The region’s cuisine is sometimes said to be more simple than other region’s cuisines, perhaps a consequence of an arid landscape and a harsher climate.
Issarn’s greatest export might be green papaya salad (“somtam”), which is shredded unripe papaya, tomato, long beans, peanuts, lime, fish source, sugar, salt and chili, all bashed-up in a mortar. There are many variations of this dish, sometimes with the added taste of “pla ra”. Another Issarn favorite is “lap”. Originally a Lao dish, it’s minced meat (sometimes raw for the brave) flavored with herbs and spices and fish sauce. Again, there are many variations of the dish. The people of this region are also known culinary risk-takers (perhaps a force of necessity at times), eating snails, field rats, insects, lizards, frogs and geckos. Water buffalo is also eaten in this region more than in the rest of Thailand. At the same time the much more prosaic grilled pork and chicken, which you find all over the country, originates in Issarn.
Issarn就是泰国的东北部地区，这里受老 挝和高棉文化影响。该地区以干热为主。 与传 统泰国北部一样，它们以糯米为主食，而不是 茉莉饭米。 食物往往比较辛辣刺鼻，主要是“pla
（一种刺鼻的发酵鱼）正在进入许多咖喱中。 该地区的美食做法被认为认为比其他地区的美 食更简单，可能是干旱的风景和严峻的气候造 成的后果。 Issarn最著名的可能要数青木瓜沙拉 （“somtam”），这种沙拉是将未成熟的木瓜， 番茄，长豆，花生，柠檬，鱼露，糖，盐和辣 椒切成碎片凉拌。 这道菜有很多变化，有时候 还会添加“pla ra”。 另一个Issarn人的最爱是“lap”。 起初是老 挝菜，它是用香草香料和鱼酱调好的肉末（有 时都是生肉）。这道菜也有它很多变化。 这个地区的人们也被称为烹饪冒险者，有 时会吃蜗牛，田鼠，昆虫，蜥蜴，青蛙和壁虎 等奇怪的动物。 这个地区的牛肉消费量也比泰国其他地方 要多。 与此同时，在全国各地比较常见的烤猪 肉和鸡肉都是起源于东北。
Thai cuisine and fusion cuisine 泰国美食的融合 Many dishes in Thailand defy regional ancestry, and perhaps none as well known as “phad Thai”. It’s an omnipresent present street food throughout the nation, consisting of stir-fried noodles, meat (sometimes vegetarian), tofu, eggs, shallots, garlic, sugar, chili and garlic.
he same homeless status could be given to “khao phad”, which is fried rice served with meat, eggs, onions and garlic.
Taken to a more fusional level, you have American fried rice, which will often contain mini-hot dogs, raisins and pieces of ham. Similarly, a dish called drunken noodles (“phad ki mao”) appeared in Thai cuisine but has no place of birth. This combines noodles, meat, fish sauces, oyster sauce, soy sauce, fresh black pepper pods and Thai basil.
On some menus you’ll also find it cooked with pasta. But as for Thai fusion food combining other countries’ foods the list is endless. In the larger cities you’ll now find Thai-fusion burgers, in which the patty will be “lab”, or Thai basil will flavor the burger. In one Bangkok restaurant you can order a “tom yam” ceviche; the Four Seasons in Chiang Mai serves a delectable “lab” lobster.
PHAD KI MAO
泰国的许多菜肴根本就不知道它起源于哪 里， “phad Thai”这是一种遍布全国街头美食， 类似于炒面，包含有肉类（可以是素食），豆 腐，鸡蛋，青葱，大蒜，糖，辣椒。 还有一个就是“khao
饭，肉、鸡蛋、洋葱和大蒜。 跟完美的融合就是“美国炒饭”，在炒饭中 加入热狗，葡萄干和火腿片等等。 同样，一种叫做醉酒面条的菜（“phad ki mao”）出现在泰国菜中，但没有出生地。主要 食材有面条，肉，鱼酱，蚝油，酱油，新鲜的 黑胡椒，豆荚和圣罗勒叶。 在一些菜单上，你还会发现它与意大利 特别面熟。但对于融合其他国家食品的泰国来 说，菜单是无止境的。在大城市里，你会发现 泰式汉堡，泰式圣罗勒味汉堡。在曼谷的一家

Traditional Royal cuisine elegance and sophistication 优雅精致的传统皇家美食 Royal cuisine to some extent isn’t all that different to food found all over Thailand, although the emphasis of such dishes was on elegant presentation, a sometimes-complex method of creation, balanced flavors and the highest quality produce.
NAM PRIK LONG RUA.
e might note here that some of the best ingredients these days in Thailand come from the country’s many Royal Projects. In days gone by, the cooks for Thailand’s royalty would search out the best ingredients, creating unique variations of Thai dishes.
皇家美食在某种程度上与泰国各地的食物并不完全相同，各种菜肴注重于优雅的陈列和复杂的创作方 法，均衡的口味和最优质的产品。 我们大家可能都知道，泰国最好的食材是来自该国的众多皇家项目。 在厨师为泰国皇室服务的日子时 期，他们找出了出最好的原材料，创造出泰式菜肴的独特变体。 这几天你会发现一些供应皇家泰式美食餐馆，主要是在曼谷。最着名的菜肴是“Kao Mon人的一道菜。将白米饭浸泡在香味冷水中。
在泰国人使用碎冰）。 这道菜被誉为泰国解暑美味。 这座宫殿中也有自己的辣椒蘸料，叫做“nam prik long rua”。根据历史的记载，这道菜是皇家厨师在 皇家船上的厨房里用虾酱，然后通过添加 炸鲶鱼，甜猪肉，并用各种草药和香料进行煎炸而成。
These days, you’ll find a handful of restaurants, mainly in Bangkok, serving Royal Thai Cuisine. Perhaps the most well-known of the dishes is “Kao Chae”, which was originally a dish of the Mon people. This is white rice that is soaked in scented cold water. It’s served with a variety of small mixed dishes you can add to the cool water (these days, Thais use crushed ice). The dish is renowned as the prandial prescription to a stiflingly hot summer day in Thailand. The palace also had its own take on the Thai chili dip, called “nam prik long rua.” History tells us the royal cook came up with the dip after finding shrimp paste in the kitchen on the royal boat, and then got creative by adding fried catfish, sweet pork, and frying it up with various herbs and spices. 24 LIFE M a g a z i n e l 35
Thai desserts, omnipresent tropical fruits 泰式甜点，无所不在的热带水果
Thai desserts, or “kanom waan”, might simply be a selection of Thailand’s abundant tropical fruits, while jellies, custards, sweetened and flavored sticky rice, cakes, and Thai ice cream make up most of the rest of Thai sweets.
popular dish is durian with sticky rice sweetened with coconut milk. Perhaps the most favored dessert by tourists is a similar dish using sweet mango, sweetened and salted sticky rice, covered in coconut cream and sprinkled with crunchy mung beans. Thailand has its own variations of jelly, including “khanom chun – a green jelly flour, coconut milk and sugar. Another royal dessert is the pretty “luk chub”, which is grinded steamed mung bean shaped into tiny fruits and glazed with gelatin. One of the most common Thai desserts you’ll find is a coconut custard called “takoh”, often served in banana leaf parcels. Adding savory to the sweet Thai crepes are popular, served with meringue and sweetened egg yolk, while you’ll find street vendors all over Thai cities selling pancakes filled with bananas and doused with sweet condensed milk. You may also come across fruits in Thailand which are carved into sometimes audacious shapes, historically a presentation only for the eyes of royalty. LUK CHUB
泰式甜点或“kanom waan”可能仅仅是泰国丰富的热带水果缩影的一部分，而果冻，蛋羹，甜糯米， 蛋糕和冰淇淋构成了泰国其他甜食的大部分。 有一种特别受欢迎的甜点是榴莲糯米，在糯米上加上甜椰奶和榴莲。 也许游客还是比较喜欢另外一种 甜点，香甜的芒果，外加甜味的糯米，椰子奶，再撒上松脆的绿豆。 泰国也拥有自己的果冻，其中包括“khanom chun - 一种绿色果冻粉，有椰奶和糖。 另一种皇室甜点 是 “luk chub”，它是将绿豆粉和明胶混合，制作成各种各样的小水果。 最常见的泰式甜点就是椰子奶油冻，称为“takoh”，通常用香蕉叶包裹。里面常常会加入蛋清和蛋黄， 这在泰国的每个城市，你都会发现有街头小贩在出售装满香蕉的椰子冻，并浇上甜奶。 你也可能见到泰国特异的水果，这些水果被雕刻成特别的形状，在历史上这些只是用于皇室的陈设。
