Thai food is incredible, there is no denying that. It is popping up more and more around the country, Thai restaurants are crushing it these days. But the problem is a lot of the thai food we know is really Americanized Thai food that has little to no relation to the real stuff. Our buddy Derek is here to help you change that.

He has become an incredible Thai cooking over the past year and we wanted to share some of his favorite recipes with you guys, really get a feel for Thai food and what makes it so damn delicious.

Enjoy the series, this is only part one. It focuses mostly on Northern Thai food.
