    Budget Rethink?

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 21/04/2017

    » Our dear cabinet recently approved a budget to buy 10 made-in-China tanks worth two billion baht while key members also seem keen on a plan proposed by the Royal Thai Navy to buy three submarines worth 36 billion baht. While I'm sure these dear sirs exercised their sound rationale before agreeing to such big purchases for the sake of Thailand's security, IMHO, with utmost respect, I would like to point out that there are other more beneficial ways the money could be used too.

    What's cooking for breakfast?

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 08/01/2017

    » Everyone knows that breakfast is an important meal, but when looked at closely, it is as loaded with cultural significance as it is with vitamins and nutrients to fuel the coming day. It can provide a wealth of detailed information on the local environment, on the historical era in which it is or was eaten, the kind of work done by and the social status of the family who prepare and eat it, and the prevailing awareness of the relationship between food and good health.

    A culinary melting pot

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 28/08/2016

    » Think of a favourite dish and then consider the various ingredients that come together to make it. You'll see that they are drawn from many different sources, some of them borrowed from other culinary traditions. One good example is pad Thai. Almost everything that goes into it is Chinese, from the small-gauge rice noodles to the tofu, beansprouts, hua chai po (Chinese turnip), Chinese leeks, dried shrimp, peanuts and even the duck eggs (in the past, ducks in Thailand were raised by Chinese). In terms of its ingredients, this familiar dish is Chinese from top to bottom, although whether it was a Thai or a Chinese cook who first prepared it, I don't know.

    Cracking duck eggs' appeal

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 31/07/2016

    » If you compare a duck's egg with a hen's egg, which one comes out on top? The right answer is that each one has its strong points.

Cooked-to-order food shops don't keep duck eggs at the ready for customers, who are very unlikely to ask for them.
