How to Make a Thai-style Cilantro Limeade

affiliate disclosure

A Thai-style cilantro limeade may sound somewhat exotic but it’s really nothing more than water, lime juice, cilantro, coconut sugar and a pinch of salt. And you can whip it up in a matter of minutes. I adapted it from a recipe in The Herbalist’s Kitchen, a new cookbook by herbalist Brittany Nickerson. Brittany lives […]

How to Make a REAL Thai Soda

A few weeks ago I was perusing through my local Asian food store when I came across a few different brands of Thai soda. Not surprisingly, when I looked at the ingredients, they were mostly chemicals. But it inspired me to try making a REAL version at home. What I mean by a REAL Thai […]

How to Make a Thai Bouillabaisse

Of all the pictures I took for my new book about Thai soups, this one for a Thai bouillabaisse, is probably my favorite. It makes me want to stick my face in it and start slurping all that seafood goodness. Am I right all you seafood lovers?!  I don’t understand sometimes how anyone could not […]

Thai Watermelon-Mint Soup Recipe

Surely, somewhere in tropical Thailand someone makes a Thai watermelon soup recipe similar to this one (though I never encountered it in my travels in Thailand). The combination of a steamy hot summer day with Thai seasonings, mint and watermelon makes for a wonderfully cooling and intensely flavorful soup. Planning an outdoor backyard party in summer? […]

Tom Saap is a simple broth-based Thai soup that really showcases the fragrant depths that fresh lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves can add to soups.  It was one of the few recipes in my book, The Thai Soup Secret, that I nailed on my first attempt during the recipe testing phase. It was so flavorful that […]

Khao Tom Gai (Thai Chicken and Rice Soup)

Khao tom gai, a very simple Thai chicken and rice soup, is not that different than a typical chicken soup your grandmother would make. In fact, I’d go as far to say that your grandparents might actually like this recipe! That is if you could get them to try it. I don’t know about you […]

How to Make Gaeng Om (Thai Herbal Curry Soup)

affiliate disclosure

Gaeng om, an herbal curry soup from northeastern Thailand, is not your typical Thai curry. It’s not fiery hot. It’s not rich and heavy. And it’s not sweet. Nor is it made with the red and green Thai curry pastes that require lots of ingredients and a good hour spent pounding everything into a paste in a mortar […]

I am soooooo excited to finally share this news. When I traveled to Thailand last year, I really had no intention to write a book about Thai soups. I was happy to just merrily eat my way around the country, write a few blog posts and share pics of my journey. Like this tom yum […]
