Have you thought hosting a Thai dinner party?
Thai food is delicious and it doesn't take long to prepare.
Here in Sydney, Thai food is so popular that it's probably the most frequented restaurant in terms of foreign cuisines here.
But you can still enjoy great Thai food in the comfort of your own home (you can even buy it and heat it up). Why rush when you can spend hours chatting and catching up - not feeling like you have to leave so someone else can have your table?
But the enjoyment for me is in the cooking of the meal - knowing that my guests are enjoying something I have prepared.
You have some many choices - spring rolls, money bags, fish cakes for a starter - for main Pad Thai or a stir fry and some steamed rice with a tropical fruit platter for dessert or stick rice. You really have so many choices. All you need to do is look at the menu of your local Thai restaurant and the recipes are easy to find.
