We’d first dined at House, sister restaurant to Spice I Am, just after it opened in 2010 and having just returned from a summer holiday in Thailand and desperately missing the excellent cheap Thai street food, daily massages and generous cocktails, the Co-pilot and I together with our travel companions DanW and Katie booked ourselves [...]

One of the most popular posts on The Gourmet Forager is one recreating David Thompson’s tom yum goong recipe (Thai hot and sour soup with prawns) – one that is at first glance intimidatingly complex yet once attempted, I found it was simple, reliably reproducible yet no less impressive. The flavours were so punchy and [...]

On our wedding day, sometime after the ceremony, sometime between mouthfuls of pork belly rolls and champagne and nightfall, it dawned on us that we were leaving the very next day for a week of relaxation in Thailand. The lead up to our wedding had been all-consuming, so we chose a destination that would provide [...]

What a whirlwind year! 2010 has zipped past me like the Stig in a speeding Koenigsegg, with only the whispering ghosts of his lingering cologne as a souvenir to remind you that anything ever happened. Whilst we still have days to go till we launch into 2011, it’s not premature of me to call it [...]

The first recipe I cooked from David Thompson’s Street Food cookbook was the Thai laksa with beef and dried prawns and it took me an extraordinary amount of time to prepare the intricate ingredients into various powders and pastes.

Not two months ago, the Co-pilot and I went to Thailand for 2 weeks and gorged ourselves on delicious, authentic and cheap Thai food. But from Bangkok to Koh Tao, the street food was the tastiest fare that never failed to plaster satisfied grins on our faces. I was so enamoured with the delicious food [...]

June 7, 2009

Whilst I’ve had many a banana flower salad in Thailand and in the Thai restaurants around Sydney, I’ve never personally cooked with banana flower before. Whilst perusing through the fruit and vegetable stalls in Cabramatta out in Sydney’s west, I picked up a banana flower, stared at it and realised I wouldn’t have the slightest [...]

Good thaimes at Longrain

May 13, 2009

Yes, clearly I couldn’t help myself when the opportunity presented itself to take a stab at a Thai pun name. Oh, I’m not making fun of Longrain – we’re great friends – we go way back.
