The Golden Kingdom of Thailand is home to some of the most pungent and spicy fresh ingredients in the world. Regarded as one of the worlds most popular cuisines, Thailand is valued for its low fat content and health enhancing properties.
Join Merrilees as she visits paddy fields and aircraft-hangar sized rice barges, shops in the floating markets of Bangkok and the night market in Chiang Mai and discovers beautiful fresh fruit and the notoriously smelly durian fruit. Learn how to cook steaming Pad Thai noodles and tangy fish sauce with a street food vendor, master the intricate art of fruit sculpture and the delicacies of the Royal Thai Cuisine.
Then we spend a night with a Thai family and prepare green curry, and are awoken early to make an offering to the monks at the local temple.
