    Thai Slow Cooker Recipes
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | September 21, 2019
    When the leaves start falling and the weather starts to change, all we want is warming comfort food to come home to. One of the best ways to do this is by making use of your slow cooker. You pop all the ingredients in when you get up in the morning and then eat it when you get home at the end of a cold, dark day - it's perfect. Now, just because you're not standing in front of a stove for a few hours does not mean you can't enjoy delicious Thai food because there are so many slow cooker recipes that make delicious Thai food that you'd be mad not to try them. So, here is a round up of a few recipes for you to try. Slow Cooker Thai Beef Curry It’s true that the long, slow cooking period mellows flavors. But bold spices, in bold amounts, will hold their own over time. Here, we start with big flavor from a good amount of curry paste and fish sauce, and we finish with...

    Powerful Affirmations & The Power of Positive Thinking
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | August 21, 2019
    Words are extremely powerful, whether they’re spoken aloud or in our minds and shouldn’t be underestimated. A single word, all on its own, can plant a seed within our minds and if left to grow overtime, particularly if it is fed and watered with more words and thoughts can grow and manifest into an actual reality. This is all well and good when that initial, fledgling word is a positive one, but when it’s negative this can have harmful effects on your whole mindset. The problem with negative thoughts is that they can become self-fulfilling prophecies. We talk ourselves into believing that we're not good enough. And, as a result, these thoughts drag down our personal lives, our relationships, and our careers. It might sound like a terrible cliché but in order to achieve success, a positive frame of mind is essential. Yes, it is impossible to be positive 100% of the time but the important thing is that positivity rather than negativity is the overriding emotion. What is an Affirmation?

    Is All Thai Food Spicy?
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | July 9, 2019
    Something we hear a lot in Thai Terre is that when people are considering restaurants in East Sussex they dismiss Thai food because someone in the party doesn’t like spicy food, so we decided it was time to put to rest the myth that all Thai food is spicy.

    There is a health benefit in eating spicy Thai food.  Spices in large quantities reduce intestinal bacteria and parasites, so in the tropics, people adopted spicy food and simply felt better.

    Spicy food also increases blood circulation and it also helps regulate sweating, which keeps the body cool. Spicy food brings the blood from the core to the skin’s surface and dilates the capillaries in the skin, which helps us to sweat and expel the heat. Thai food is a blend of strong flavor’s giving sensations of spicy, sweet, salty and sour combinations complimented with many aromatic infusions.

    Thai cuisine is born of a melting pot of different flavours and influences, includi...

    Time with Thailand’s Treasures

    With a bright and vibrant culture there are so many things to see and do in Thailand because this is a dream Thailand Holiday whether going on your own, on a gap year or with family and friends.

    Sanctuary

    On the top of many to do lists would be to visit an Elephant wildlife park/reserve and help look after  the elephants for a while. We have all seen pictures of people basically sat in the lap of an elephant that was lying down which just seems incredible and so many would love to experience it and call it one of the most life-altering experiences of their lives.

    Relaxation

    There are so many beautiful beaches which are stretches of white sand and clear blue waters such as Ko Pha Ngan and the Phi Phi ...

    Thai Cooking Essentials
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | April 15, 2019
    a big pink bowl of green and red chillis So you've been out and visited your local highly rated Thai Restaurant (we don't like to brag but... thanks) and you tried the most delicious food which you simply must recreate at home...or at least try. The thing is, where do you start with Thai cooking? If you're going to cook one dish, you might as well create a Thai larder of sorts as you won't use up all of your ingredients in just one dish and let's face it, once you've tried one Thai dish, you'll just want to try more and more. So when it comes to Thai Cooking Essentials, here is what you should have in your cupboard.

    Jasmine Rice

    This Thai staple, a long-grain rice with a nutty flavor, is a must-have (especially if you have a rice cooker to do the work for you). The rule of thumb is to cook one cup per person.

    Sticky Rice

    Also known as glutinous rice, this is the other go-to Thai accompaniment. It needs to be steamed as it’s prepared; to achieve the perfect consistency ...

    A Thai Valentine
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | March 31, 2019
    Something that is universal, that is understood in every part of the world by every single person in some way, is love. Love has no judgements, no prejudices and no discrimination. Love is just love. In the month of February, we celebrate love in the UK which often involves giant over-sized cuddly toys, copious amounts of red roses, cars, chocolates and depending on your circumstances perhaps a meal out or a takeaway on the sofa with a loved one. But how do people in Thailand celebrate Valentines?

    What Happens in Thailand?

    There are many reasons to love Thailand and if you’re fortunate enough to be in Thailand for Valentine’s Day (‘Wan Valentine‘ in Thai), it’s easy enough to spot the signs all around that love is in the air. Teenagers on motorbikes clutch oversized cuddly toys, flower markets do a roaring trade, restaurants host special promotions and various venues are decorated with red hearts....

    3 Top Tips for A New Year & New You
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | January 8, 2019
    Firstly, let us take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year - did you have a good holiday season? We were delighted to see so many of you over the Christmas and New Year period and thank you for helping us to celebrate. Here we are at the start of a brand new year and so many of us choose to make resolutions for the year that will improve ourselves or our lives in some way. However, do we really need to wait for the arrival of a new year to make these changes and should we be changing at all? On average, resolutions last for 11-14 days before falling by the wayside. This year, rather than setting unrealistic resolutions to dramatically change the person you have been your whole life, why not set goals for the WHOLE year. That way, if you fall off the wagon, there is plenty of time to hop back on. So, what top tips do we have for going into the New Y...

    Thai Christmas Traditions
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | December 22, 2018
    There aren't many things that reach all over the world but Christmas is one of them. In some way or another, people all over the world know about Christmas, whether they celebrate it or not. For some Christmas is about religion and for others it's a time to come together and give and receive gifts with friends and loved ones. But what happens in Thailand? Do they even celebrate Christmas? Thailand is primarily a Buddhist country, with around 85 percent of its population following the religion. As such, Christmas is not a traditional holiday in Thailand, however, in recent years, some festive cheer can be felt in the countries capital, Bangkok. Thailand differs in their Christmas celebrations or it could be said that the Christmas Celebrations in Thailand vary from the rest of the world in the sense that 25th December is not the recognised as a holiday by this country December marks the month of the King of Thailand’s birthday, so the streets are already illuminated with decorations, adding to the festive feel. On t...
