Thai Themed Dinner Party

A friend/co-worker of mine used to come into work with the best smelling and tasting home cooked Thai meals for lunch on a regular basis. She's done multiple trips to Thailand and is a major foodie so she knows a good authentic tasting Thai dish when she sees one. Fast forward to a couple of months later when we decided to get together and make some of her favourite dishes and try out some new ones as well. 

We created the menu below with a dinner party in mind, with a goal of having a little bit of everything to taste, from a salad, to a soup, to a main dish and even dessert. Some of the dishes were more challenging than others (Khao Tom, I'm looking at you) but was it ever worth it! Click the photos below to get the recipes!
