Starters and snacks

Starters and snacks


In Thailand, snacks are called ของว่าง (khong wang) or อาหารว่าง (ahan wang), which literally translates as "free things" or "free food". One is thus free to enjoy the snack at any time and independently of other dishes.


Due to the importance of street food in the Kingdom and the wide range of opening hours of the various catering establishments, snacks are widely consumed and can represent a significant part of the daily diet.


This is different from the notion of starters as we know them in other cultures where the meal norm is based on a starter-main course-dessert sequence.


Moreover, Thai snacks take many different forms, use a wide variety of ingredients and all kinds of cooking methods.


In this book you will find classics such as fried rolls or satay skewers, but also dishes that are not well known, even within the Kingdom, such as curried pork with quail eggs.


We have thought of perfectionists and those who do not have an Asian grocery shop nearby. The book includes recipes for spring roll wrappers, wontons wrappers and dipping sauces for all types of snacks.


The book is designed as a cooking course and is accompanied by a number of tutorials, for example for cutting crab or folding wontons.


However, if you have any questions about certain recipes, write to us and we will get back to you shortly.


Because cooking is a pleasure to share, all recipes are for two people. They are moderately spicy by Western standards.
