Bamboo Salad

Sunday, April 4, 2010

This is one of my first Thai dishes that I love and learn to make. This pickle bamboo salad it originated in more of Southern Thai called a ha E San. E San foods are rich in spices and flavor. It is very good in it being very bold, spicy and lots of herbs. I love almost all the E San dishes and had learned to make most of them.

If you’re wondering how I of Chinese heritage, love to cook Thai food. Well it simple really. I used o owned a long time ago, over 15 years to be exact. And running beside from running the business, I love to sneak into the kitchen and learn from the chiefs there.
Since there fours chiefs I learn everything from them. One of them is an old lady that I called grandma that teaches me traditional methods to make desserts, salad, curry and craved fruit and vegetable into roses. From the other chiefs I learn to make all kind of fried rice, stir fired dishes and my favorite fried noodles!

Therefore I may not be a chief by degree or certified, but I consider myself to be very knowledgeable in Thai cooking. And over the years I think I had learned to perfected it!
