  1. This has become my most popular dish to make for my family. When my parents come home I make this, it’s one of those few dishes that the whole family enjoys, (By family I mean my parents and my brother (when he lives at home in sweden)

    In Sweden the new fashion is to have a big barrel to grow ginger in, so you always pick fresh king.

    Thank you for your blog it is probably the most useful food inspiration for me, I’ve only been in Thailand once, when I was 13 (1996). For me I wasn’t so inerested in party or cultural tours at that age, but the food, it made me impressed for life. It made me think If thailand is only a 5% sweidish incomes, poor country (even more poor then), still they make every food so much better than in Sweden. Even the simplset thai food would be considered a great marvel in sweden and people would paay almost anything for it.
