Born in Bangkok and raised on Capitol Hill, I grew up with my Mother's authentic Thai cooking. My Mom and I actually used to make fish sauce fermented in large clay pots from scratch, long before there were any imported Thai items available in Seattle.
Phat Prik Kaeng is the dish that reminds me the most of visiting Thailand. It's a stir-fried chicken with a coconut curry, green beans, Thai basil and bell peppers, served over Jasmine rice. The thicker curry and the crisp taste of the green beans are a flavor you'll always be wanting to come back to!
