The Thai Way
Thailand is one of the most exotic travel destinations on the planet. A country rich in culture and history, it's also blessed with one of the most exciting cuisines in the world.
This series is a unique fusion of travel and cookery programming.
In order to get 'under the skin' of the country we travel in search of the best cooking the Kingdom has to offer - visiting the hill tribes of the far north, tranquil villages along the mighty Mekong River, the frantic and frenetic capital, Bangkok, the lush islands off the coasts, and the near-deserted beaches of the south.
At each destination we get to see and taste local specialities, from the unusual like Giant Mekong Catfish, raw prawns in lime juice, and sweet and sour crocodile, to better known dishes like Thai Fried Noodles (Pad Thai) and Green Curry with Chicken (Gaeng Kheo Wan Gal).
Threaded throughout the series we join groups of travellers and tourists as they take part in the cookery classes held by Sompon and Elizabeth Nabnian at the Chiang Mai Thai Cookery School; and learn how to do things 'The Thai Way'.
Internationally, Thai cooking is gaining popularity year on year. The country itself is one of the fastest-growing tourists spots. This series captures why more and more people want to grab themselves 'a taste of Thailand'.
