DID YOU KNOW: In Thailand, food forms a central part of any social occasion, and it often becomes the social occasion in itself or a reason to celebrate. This is partly due to the friendly, social nature of Thai people, but also because of the way in which food is ordered, served, and eaten. Family and friends unite and share through food. A typical Thai meal includes five main flavours: salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy. Thai cuisine is also heavily influenced by Indian spices and flavours, which is evident in its famous green, red, and yellow curries. Impossible to confuse with Indian curries, Thai curries incorporate many Indian spices in their pastes, maintaining their own unique flavours thanks to local ingredients, such as Thai holy basil, lemongrass, and galangal. Other influences on Thai cooking come from neighbouring countries, like Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Burma, and Malaysia.
