    Thai food takes quite a lot of preparation. Time is spent chopping, pounding and slicing fresh ingredients for the final process, which is usually a quick stir in a hot wok. At The Chilli Club, you will learn practically, to achieve the best results, with little effort!

    The variety of ingredients and the different combinations of flavours make Thai food an unforgettable gastronomic experience. Four basic flavours are blended in different proportions, depending on the desired taste. Hot and spicy: from fresh, or dried hot peppers. Sweet: from palm or white sugar. Sour: from tamarind, or fresh lime juice. Salty: from fish, or oyster, sauces.

    Thai food is not only consumed as a source of energy, but every element of Thai food is considered to have medicinal value and healing qualities. It is possible to each some or all parts of nearly all plants and trees native to Thailand. Thai food is high in vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre and it is always, always fresh. It is a perfect cuisine for health-conscious cooks.

    If you want to find out more about Thai food, then please join The Chilli Club. Chef Visutt is a fountain of knowledge and you will enjoy learning from our recipe book too.
