Recently my husband and I traveled to Thailand where we ate our way through delicious Thai food from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. One of the highlights of our trip was staying with a local family on the island of Koh Phratong. Our host family was so generous with their cooking that it’s no surprise we absolutely fell in love with the food.
If you want a simple holiday dessert, try Thai fried bananas and sweet potatoes! It's easy to make and a fun diversion from the traditional holiday cookies.
Check out our Thai cooking adventure below and then give it a try yourself this holiday season!
