Thai Cashew Chicken, 'Gai Pad Med Mamuang Himaphan'
One of the more popular dishes on the menu in Thai restaurants in America but also Thailand. This recipe is time-consuming but the result is spot-on perfect.
The finest cashews in the world are grown in Thailand, mainly on the island of Phuket. Mamuang himaphan means cashew nut but there is an interesting translation. Himaphan's original meaning refers to the Garden of Eden, and the cashew nut looks like a small mango. The resulting pun can mean "mango of paradise", suggesting culinary heaven. We use regular refined white sugar for simplicity but you may use palm sugarfor a more succulent flavor.
Northern Thai Sausage, 'Sai Oua'
Northern Thai sausage is easy to make, and the mix of ingredients leads to a spectacular result. We would encourage you to make this with ground pork or, for any hunters reading, try this with local elk, deer, wild boar, or other natural meat that you might have. Also watch our video (below left) showing how it's made.

Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, Gai Yang Takrai
This is a simple recipe using just a few ingredients that we made at home using an electric griddle. It can be made in a skillet or in a barbecue, it really doesn't matter. This recipe came to us from an office worker in Thailand who enjoys making satay.
Satay is, of course, not just popular in Thailand but even more so in Thai restaurants around the world. In addition to this recipe, you might get interested in these:
Thai Vegetarian Larb Woonsen, 'Larb Woonsen Jae'
We find that it's difficult to enjoy true vegetarian Thai food because so many recipes use fish sauce; however, we absolutely love this vegetarian larb recipe. It does take time to prepare but the result is both nutritious and delicious. Vegetarian or not, you'll love this elegant recipe too. We also have a non-vegetarian recipe for larb woonsen.
Thai Pork Satay, 'Moo Satay'
Pork satay consists of strips of marinated pork on bamboo skewers, charcoal barbequed then served with a tasty peanut sauce and a white vinegar cucumber sauce. It's often served in Thailand with squares of toast, as shown in our recipe here. We made pork satay in the true authentic Thai style, which is time-consuming. Be sure to baste your satay as it's on the barbeque, note from our street vendor video (below left) he is constantly basting. It seems that most of the time, this style of satay is made with pork, but you can also find chicken satay and prawn satay. We offer a ready-made satay mix that's quite good for both chicken and pork.
Recently we had a fantastic meal using this recipe, prepared with our high-fat Chaokoh coconut cream rather than coconut milk, and we omitted the peanuts altogether which led to a very rich, slightly spicy satay full of true Thai flavors (see pictures below right).
There are four different things you need to make: marinade, basting sauce, satay sauce, and ajad.
Pork with Galangal, 'Kha Mu'
This is a popular "snack", but it can form a course in Thai style dinner. It could be made from any fairly fatty cut of pork, but is normally made from the hocks and shanks of pork.
Teriyaki Chicken - Japanese Style
Teriyaki is only one flavor in Japan but it's become very popular in America, and we believe you'll like this recipe. The mirin is an essential ingredient that brings out flavor and creates the shine of the sauce.
