I love Thai food and trying to start learning to cook them. There are 3 dishes that we always order when we go to a Thai restaurant. They are green curry, tom yam and a very nice omelet with meat filling.

It took me forever, but I have finally mastered red curry (thai) the way I get it in restaurants. I must have tried 10 recipes before finding something that worked just like I expected.

I've to go to Thai market everyweek for purchasing some ingredients.
This summer, I went back home to see family and ended up cooking most of the meals. I couldn't find thai chilies anywhere and had to beg the only Thai restaurant in town for a few kafir leaves. It took less than a week to truly miss my ethnic and specialty markets.

I live in a town of 3500 in the midwest. Talk about cultural food wastelands! Actually, a Chinese family just moved to town and started a Japanese restaurant. Go figure, I just am very grateful, and eat there as often as the budget allows. The last time I had Thai food that I didn't fix myself it was on a trip to Chicago ..... a couple of years ago! I do my own version of southeast Asian cuisines, and the one thing I think makes or breaks it is good, fresh herbs. Which makes me think, it must be time for me to do something in that line before we have a killing frost. Oh, I'll have to put this request in the gardening lline, but has anyone seen a source for the little Thai eggplant seeds? For those who don't know, they are the size of huge peas, and I've not seen them since I left Hawaii almost 20 years ago!
