Happy February, friends! For several years, we’ve been making February a food-centric holiday. It's a month-long celebration of a cuisine that's close to our hearts. It's Thai Food Month!
The idea is simply this - February is cold where we live. Holiday food is behind us and the fresh foods of spring have not yet arrived - February needs extra love. And February is the perfect time to eat the intensely flavorful, cozy, spicy food of Thailand.
(Laap / Larb Gai...recipe coming this month!)
Frank and I lived in Thailand for five years. Our oldest daughters were born in Bangkok. We will always have a soft spot for Thailand, and most especially, for its fantastic food. Thai Food Month is a great excuse to eat our favorite dishes, stock our Thai pantry, venture out to Thai restaurants in town, and host some friends for a Thai feast or two.
I start dreaming of steamy, colorful, vibrant Bangkok when I cook all of these dishes, and nothing makes me happier than seeing them on my (and your) table this month!
(Thai Iced Tea...recipe headed your way soon!)
For a little walk down Thai Food Month memory lane, see 2011, 2016, 2018, and 2019. Each year we have a little more fun recreating our favorite recipes, eating sticky rice with the kids, and seeing what you all make and eat too!

I just found your site and I love it. I’ll visit often. Thanks
I lost my recipe for Thai salmon (fresh or canned) patties with homemade garlic aioli. It was the best and I can't find another online that had all the wonderful ingredients. Maybe you could mix up a batch for us. Thanks!
