Thai cuisine is mostly Buddhism. They always use herbals in there food
Thai food is known for its balance of the four fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, and (optional) bitter and it also can be quite hot (spicy).
Thai food was traditionally eaten with the right hand but it is now generally eaten with a fork and a spoon
Jasmine rice is a particularly fine, medium-grain type of rice. It is fragrant when cooked, hence the name. The polished white rice is prepared without salt to balance the Thai flavors.
Traditionally cooked in a pan with a slighty curved sides, so the rice does not stick, over a charcoal stove. Here in the West, of course you can use a modern electric or gas stove.
