Art of Thai Cooking - Palace Cuisine
Beyond the flavors and health benefits, Thai cuisine is made even more enticing by the elaborate art of food presentation known as Palace Cuisine. This ancient skill, still practiced today, is a beautiful demonstration of the convergence of Thai cuisine and culture. Intricate meals are garnished with flowers and masterfully carved fruits and vegetables to create edible works of art. It’s the seemingly natural complement to the artisan-like nuances of flavor, texture, and aroma. In light contrast to Palace Cuisine is traditional home cooking. This form of cooking is equally as flavorful and robust, but served without the grandeur of Palace Cuisine. Instead, it’s served in the traditional Thai style of sharing several dishes, or in the single-dish Western style.
