Thai dishes are certainly capturing people’s imaginations across the UK and with Thailand’s New Year celebrations coming up it is a great time to join in the fun with some tasty cuisine.
Songkran is celebrated in Thailand as the traditional New Year’s Day from April 13-15. The festival is also known as the Thailand Water Festival and celebrates a clean, new start to the year.
Food always plays a major part in any celebration and Wing Yip stocks the delicious Mai Siam range to help you produce authentic tasting Thai dishes which are sure to impress family and friends.
Full of coconut, coriander, lemongrass and basil, Thai food packs a refreshing spring punch. The range of sauces and pastes has been developed over many generations and brings the flavours of Thailand straight into your kitchen.
Mai Siam Thai Green Curry paste gives an unmistakable flavour to the popular Thai Green Chicken Curry along with Mai Siam’s coconut milk and palm sugar. Thai Green Curry is the most popular Thai dish outside of Thailand to date. The authentic paste is delightfully aromatic with spices that are authentically Thai.
With hundreds of recipes available at www.wingyipstore.co.uk it is easy to produce stunning dishes, including Thai fish cakes using Mai Siam’s fish sauce and red curry paste.
Thai Red Curry evolved after the introduction of chillies to the central region of Thailand in the late 16th Century. It is one of the country’s most popular dishes and is milder than Thai Green Curry. This paste is delightfully aromatic and is flavoured with spices including pungent kaffir lime.
Mai Siam Thai Fish Sauce originates from the coastal areas where it was commonly made in the home for use in nearly every savoury dish. Add a few drops to your cooking and it will really enhance the flavour. It is used best as a dipping sauce, by mixing with lime juice and chillies.
Rich with garlic, the Mai Siam Thai Sriracha Sauce, made from a special blend of Asian spices, is also ideal for dipping savoury appetisers and bringing an extra flavour dimension to cooking.
