Below is a selection of dishes which I believe will be most popular with guests, however, I have experience cooking a very wide selection of Thai cuisine. I am very flexible with how I prepare this food to account for dietary requirements and allergies – for example, many curries are delicious as vegetarian options, and I am used to cooking for children (and some adults) who can not take spicy food. Some of these dishes are classical central Thai, other from the Isaan region.
