We’re highlighting a super tropical soup this week called ’Tom Kha Gai’ from the PTJ recipe box. Typical to Thai cooking, this soup is all about speedy cooking. Thai cuisine is a very energy efficient form of cooking. Ingredients are cut super fine to increase their surface area and cooked on short but super hot bursts of energy. So let that be a little thought to keep in mind when you are preparing - what a good excuse to sharpen up your knife skills!
