Earlier this year - Jin Som Mak Khai - sour pork and egg that is grilled in banana leaves from an amazing spot in the outskirts of Chiang Mai that @andrewrfblack and I had to seek out based on @pawkhrua love for it. So delicious and memorable. The recipe for this and more are in @pawkhrua new book “The Drinking Food of Thailand” which is certainly worth getting as it is thorough and covers a very much unknown subject to me and probably everybody else. Also pictured is nam prik kha (chili-galangal dip) which is to die for. #makebistro

Thailand 2017. I have many photos from my last trip that I still didn’t share. I will do my best to start posting more of them because they illustrate the brilliance of the Thai culture that I adore and am continually inspired to learn about.

Hand pounding curry paste is therapeutic. The natural oils that release from each ingredient until they form a smooth paste is one of my favorite things. November 18 dinner is sold out and I’m excited to share some curry! #makebistro

Come try this and more at my dinner on November 11! Message me for details. Yum pla fu - green mango (or papaya depending on availability here) salad served over a bed of 100% fish made into a fluffy cloud. It’s common to use breadcrumbs to cut the fish, but I️ prefer not to. #makebistro

Here lies the magical FRESH ingredients to make a small batch of Kua Kling, a spicy southern thai curry of minced meat. Nothing frozen ever. On that note, I do not make many dishes that I would like to because of not being able to find certain ingredients that aren’t frozen. This will be be pounded into a paste. The ratios differ each time, I imagine this will be spicy enough given that I’m not cooking much pork, but we shall see! clockwise: garlic, shallot, lemongrass, dried/fresh chili, turmeric, galangal, black pepper, and shrimp paste in the center. #makebistro
