Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - It hits your tongue like a swarm of bees blasting your unsuspecting taste buds. Thai cuisine excites every area of your mouth. There's a mix of sweet, salty, sour, and spicy hot in every meal. It will leave your tongue stunned. Maybe this is why Thai food is internationally famous.
Thai cuisine is essentially a marriage of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences harmoniously combined. Originally, Thai cooking reflected the characteristics of a waterborne lifestyle. Aquatic animals, plants and herbs were major ingredients. With their Buddhist background, Thais shunned the use of large animals in big chunks. Big cuts of meat were shredded and laced with herbs and spices. Traditional Thai cooking methods were stewing and baking, or grilling.
Chinese influences saw the introduction of frying, stir frying and deep-frying. Culinary influences from the 17th century onwards included Portuguese, Dutch, French and Japanese. Chiles were introduced to Thai cooking during the late 1600s by Portuguese missionaries who had acquired a taste for them while serving in South America.
