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
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | June 15, 2019
    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.


    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.


    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...

    Make Your Own Thai Curry Pastes
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | November 21, 2018
    When you sit down at the table and place an order, you can guarantee that soon all your senses are going to bing alive with flavours and smells of Thai food. Dishes tend to be a taste explosion - part of this is down to the chef and the other part is down to the amazing ingredients included in each and every Thai dish. What a lot of people assume is that the ingredients are often exotic and from faraway lands, but the truth is that some of the best dishes are made from some of the simplest ingredients and of course the major key to any good Thai dish is the spice used to make it.

    Start with a Paste

    Nearly all Thai foods begin with a paste of some kind - Thai Green/Red/Yellow curry is a prime example of this and most supermarkets sell pre-made pastes for these dishes. This of course will provide a nice dish for the family, but if you really want to blow them out of the water with a tasty explosion then it needs to come from fresh ingredients. In the Thai kitchen, pastes were traditionally made using whole spices a...
