Thai Fried Chili Paste, Bells & Flower

Extremely spicy, this is what gives our Rice Flake dish (above) and our recipe for baby corn it's nice color and flavor. The hottest chile peppers in Thailand are dried and roasted, pounded into a paste and mixed with garlic, shallot and oil. That's all there is to this paste, and it really packs a punch.

The unique powerful flavor which makes recipes so distinctive. 

Dab it over steamed jasmine rice for a quick snack, put it in any soup, especially Tom Yum for which this was made.

Tao Charcoal Burner - Made in Thailand  - On Sale

$20 off while supplies last. Back in Stock and won't last long.

Extremely useful and frankly a real conversation piece.

Found in most Thai homes, the "Tao" is a small and convenient way to cook outdoors, and it doesn't make much mess. Used for generations, this clay oven is now more efficient than ever thanks to a new design which has captured the interest of Thai academics and government officials who are promoting it as a great way to reduce fuel consumption. Using very little charcoal, this cooker produces enough heat to stir-fry small or large woks, boil water, or barbecue meats. We're importing this from the innovator who is credited with the improved design.

Fried Sticky Rice, 'Kao Neeo Tod'

A wonderful, delicious recipe that's easy to prepare.
