Inspiration from Thai Kitchens
Grapow is a Thai word for Holy Basil To Thais, this iconic dish is like a hamburger to Americans. It's their most favorite dish to enjoy both at home and in restaurants. It is a simple stir-fried dish with chilies, garlic, Thai basil and a choice of protein. This dish will make the Thai category on campus a big hit.
Thai curries are known for their delicacy, lighter in texture and more flavorful and aromatic than any other curries. Mom Vilai Yenbamroong will share her well-focused, light handed technique in cooking a Thai curry that makes Talesai popular among Hollywood celebrities, and yet is very simple to execute on campus.
