Good morning friends! I’m popping in this morning with a little announcement and an invitation for you!
February is Thai Food Month
A few years ago, Frank and I declared February to be Thai Food Month. The idea was really that February is cold and dreary and lends itself well to warm (or spicy!), comforting food – the food of Thailand is a natural fit. In February we re-stock our Thai pantry, cook a little extra Thai food at home, and jump at the excuse to explore more Thai restaurants in town. We even just saw a Groupon deal for one of our local Thai restaurants which we snagged in less than 2 seconds. For a little walk down Thai Food Month memory lane, see 2011 and 2016.
That brings us to this month – February 2018 – which has been extra cold and snowy here in Kansas City. We’re missing our Thai food and decided to make this a real thing. We’re declaring February once again to be #thaifoodmonth and we want you to join us!
What We’ll Do
In honor of Thai food month, we’re going to share some new Thai-inspired recipes here on the blog over the next few weeks. Follow along here and on Instagram to keep up with our cooking and eating (!) Thai food adventures.
What You Can Do (to win a $100 Amazon gift card!)
Lovely readers, we want you to get involved in this celebration of Thai food (and food-fueled escape from the cold weather). Eat Thai food with us this month. It can be something you cook or something you eat out. Then share it with us on social media. Don’t worry about it being authentic – anything that is Thai-inspired makes us happy!
And to make this even more of a celebration, we’re giving away $100 Amazon gift card to one reader at the end of February!
All you have to do to enter is:
- Take a picture of Thai food that you cooked or ate out
- Share the picture on Instagram or Facebook
- Tag @inquiringchef and #thaifoodmonth
You must post by February 28, 2018 and have an Amazon account (we’ll send the prize digitally) for a chance to win. We’ll select one reader at random to win the $100 Amazon gift card!
And if you need inspiration, check out all of our Thai Recipes here.
We can’t wait to see what you post! We’re hungry just thinking about it.
