Thai food is one of the most loved cuisines out there in the world. The ingredients, flavour profiles and cooking methods are characteristic of Thai food and cuisine. The dishes are a dime a dozen, but what is interesting about Thai food is the diversity and complexity in cooking methods involved to bring out a certain flavour that is representative of that dish.
Traditionally, Thai food is cooked by a range of methods - stewing, grilling and baking. Over time, Thai cuisine has evolved to include stir-frying and deep-frying - an influence brought about by Chinese migrants into Southeast Asia. Dutch, French and Japanese cuisine influences have also changed the way that Thai food looks like today.
