    The perpetual protein

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 10/02/2019

    » Thais are experts when it comes to eating fish. This has to do with people's lifestyle since the old days, as their lives have always intertwined with rivers and canals. A variety of fish is easy to find. People don't even have to buy them because they can catch fish themselves. From experience, people soon learn distinctive qualities about each fish and what sort of food should be made from it, including how to season it and what kind of vegetables would go with it. Another mindset is to not let the fish go to waste. If a lot of fish are caught, they can be preserved to eat later.

    Old versus new

    Life, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 21/09/2018

    » Culinary art keeps evolving. Nothing is the same when looking back 50 years, when the same kind of food was completely different from today. It is quite difficult to predict future food style. It would be possible that shrimp with spicy soup might add vermicelli or black bean. Or pad Thai might add red tilapia fish. Or soybean milk might replace coconut milk in green curry.

    The non-national national dish

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 26/05/2019

    » Chinese food served in Thailand can be divided by Chinese language groups. The Cantonese specialise in roasted and grilled dishes such as roast duck, grilled pork, bamee moo daeng (noodle with red pork), and bamee rad na naw mai (noodle topped with bamboo shoots in gravy). Hakka Chinese are very good at preparing noodles served with pork balls and tofu balls. The Hainanese are famous for khao man gai (Hainanese chicken rice) and stewed mutton while the Suchow Chinese (Teochew) are experts in boiled and stir-fried foods.

    The fish that makes a great catch

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 12/03/2017

    » I'm sure that there are many people who have the same relationship with catfish dishes that I do. When they think of a particular favourite -- grilled catfish with boiled neem flowers and the sweet-spicy sauce called nam plaa waan, or the fish deep-fried with spicy seasonings and crisp-fried basil leaves scattered on top -- they crave to eat some right then and there.

    Souped up broth best served hot

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 27/12/2015

    » When you eat a meal in China, there will probably be an array of different dishes on the table. One thing that can never be missing, however, is some kind of dish with a broth. Here, you have to be careful to avoid being scalded. Dishes hot from the stove usually have steam rising up from them, but the broth in Chinese dishes gives no such warning. These foods appear cool and harmless, but if you aren't careful you'll leave the table with your tongue fully cooked.

    Roadside stalls step up to the plate

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 17/04/2016

    » 'Roadside warriors" is a great title for the intrepid vendors that cook food-to-order at stalls and shops beside many roads and lanes in every province throughout Thailand. But not all who buy their food hold it in high esteem. Many customers don't really like this kind of eating and settle for it only when they have no other option.

    Sweet success

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 03/02/2019

    » This week's Cornucopia takes you to an annual food and dessert festival that has been held for almost 30 years. It's a not-to-be-missed event for those who are familiar with it because foods and desserts that are rare these days will be available at incredibly cheap prices. It's an event that brings together volunteers that are sometimes more talented than professionals. Proceeds from the event go to charity. It's not a state affair for tourism purposes. Neither is it a promotional happening to make a shopping mall famous. And it takes place at a temple.

Coffee is special. It does its job well but in a contradictory way. It makes your body alert and relaxed at the same time.

    Reading the leaves

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 09/12/2018

    » For desserts and other food to taste great, it's not only about the flavour. The smell is another important factor in making food all the more tasty. A lot of Thai food relies on smell, which mostly comes from leaves. Try imagining Thai food without kaffir lime leaves, basil, tamarind leaves or cha-om leaves. Now what would everything taste like?
