Thai Palm Sugar
In Thai recipes as well as recipes throughout Southeast Asia, palm sugar is used as a natural sweetener. Our palm sugar is the best you can find anywhere, as we import from a premium producer in western Thailand, where the natural sap is collected from cut sugar palms and boiled until a nice sticky sugar remains. The natural sugar is poured directly into little cakes and packaged for easy use (see photos below).
It can be also eaten as candy. Consistency is firm but slightly soft, making it more simple to use than the inferior rock hard palm sugar some are selling.
You get 8 small cakes, simply shave off what you need with a knife or use a hand grater (see photos), and it dissolves nicely in the cooking process. Use with curries, gourmet dishes, sauces, and various desserts.
Ingredients: Coconut blossom 75%, white sugar 20%, malt sugar 5%.

Thai Crispy Fish Topped with Chili Sauce, 'Pla Rad Prik'
This is a very spicy crispy fish that's surprisingly simple to make using just a few ingredients. It's best to use fresh red Thai chile peppers. Regarding the fish, here we used tilapia you can use any fish such as cod, catfish, trout, salmon, etc. We had the fish cleaned and gutted but left the head on. You may prefer to remove the head, or even use fish fillets -- it doesn't matter.
Note that when you've finished frying your fish, put it in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes or so as you prepare the sauce, as this will make it even more crispy.
Khao Mau Tod - Young Rice Fried Banana Fritters
Khao Mau is a very tradtional sweet banana desert that's made in the Northeastern (Isan) region of Thailand, by families who are harvesting new crop rice.
Typically they will use rice that was harvested that day (still wet, and slightly green) but we use regular sticky rice here with good results.
Panang Chicken Breast, 'Panang Oak Gai'
This panang creates a large amount of meat and soup, would be great for potluck. We recommend using large chicken breasts with the bone still on. Panang Oak Gai means 'Panang Breast (oak) of Chicken (gai)'.
