Hot is what people usually think of when it comes to Thai cuisine, so they stay away. Though heat is what they are known for, it is not all there is to Thai cooking.
Thai food is about blending the primary flavors such as salty, sweet, sour, bitter and pungent (spicy or hot). These flavors are what lye at the center of Thai cooking and they are used in balance with each other. Flavor is important. There are really no boundaries; it’s all about the individual’s desired taste.
You will definitely experience a mouth full of flavor when you bite into this next recipe that Chef Bill Hassett has created, Thai Lettuce Wraps. He combines all the flavors into one delicious bundle. Not only do these Thai Lettuce Wraps please the pallet, but they are easy to make and very fun to eat. So tonight I suggest you go Thai and experience a whole new world of flavor right in your own home. Enjoy!
