Following this one for sure!

Haven't got much to share in terms of recipes, but we love Thai food, and so really want to start cooking at home...

Checkers has some nice Thai ingredients which have simple recipes on them.

Perfect for starting out.

If you have any good Asian/Indian or Gorimas spice shops they generally cheaper than the supermarkets.

Get yourself a T-Fal wok and bobs your uncle.

The only challenge is our gas stoves/hobs dont get as hot as what they use over there. but its close enough

Its easy peasy.

I've had a few experiences with Thai food (or at least that's what I was told I was eating).

Peanuts are a bar snack. Peanuts (actually ANY nuts) in food is simply  :puke: - likewise peanut butter (Who TAF cooks with that  :puke:)

Sprouts are also  :puke: - I won't even eat them in a salad ( :angrywife: insists on putting them in salad, hence beer is my salad).

The chili part I can get - I enjoy savoury & spicy. But the aforementioned nuts & sprouts put me right off & I've never bothered with it ever again.

Green papaya salad is the winner for me, it has got peanuts so Trompie would not like.  Never manage to find suitable papaya (Iím pretty sure it isnít unripe pawpaw as that was an unpleasant tasting attempt to find a version).

Red curry is fairly easy if you get the imported paste, usually has the recipe on the back too and instructions.
