Thai food profile
Theerawat’s thoughts on cooking Thai food…
“There are certain rules that govern Thai cuisine. In savoury dishes we salt our food with fish sauce, making it the primary source of sweetness. For sweetness we always use palm sugar rather then granulated or brown.Thai salad dressing has no oil and many of the salads do not contain any sugar. You may find an exception to this, such as papaya salad, but none of our salads at lemongrass use oil.”
Lemongrass is proud to introduce E Saan’s food culture into the UK. E Saan food and it’s preparation has been handed down from generation to generation in Thailand. The E Saan people use their own freshly grown plants, fruits and local produce to make their cooking a much purer and more organic style of cuisine.
Theerawat’s views on E Saan-style cooking…
I am very proud of Lemongrass because they follow the traditional style of Thai food; using fresh ingredients for the best taste. It makes me feel as if I’m home in Thailand!
