Andy Learns How To Cook Thai Food

Andy Baraghani spent a month in Thailand a few years ago, where he came to fall in love with Thai food, especially the food of the northeastern region of Isan. The food up there is built on fish sauce, lime, chilis and many other flavors that make the cuisine distinct, but what does it take to cook Isan Thai food? We sent Andy to one of New York’s top Isan restaurants, Somtum Der, to explore the pillars of Thai cooking. Join him and learn all about Isan spices, how to make perfect Thai fried chicken and coconut sticky rice and so much more. Word to the wise: embrace the fish sauce; it’s one of life’s great joys.
