As you might know I have been helping host a dear friend from Thailand by the name of Oiy. She is an amazing person, cook and masseuse. Saturday night we started working in the kitchen in preparation for hosting 30 people for a Thai meal. We went to bed at 03:00 got up at 09:00 to get right back to..
Pounding (yes this is Oiy)
Working in the kitchen with Oiy is such a treat. She is a person with great personality. Her laugh rings throughout the house and she is not shy to tell you what she thinks. She is not the typical shy Thai woman. As a young woman she received a scholarship to cooking school and learned from the chef who cooked for the queen. You might know that in Thailand the King and Queen hold great honour among their people.
It's my fourth year cooking in the kitchen with Oiy and I love learning how to bring out Thai flavours in foods. I must admit that I need a lot more lessons!

The Partridge a Side Story
boiling him and Oiy plucks him. We fry him with lots of garlic and yes eat him! He was delicious. We did honour him with a little prayer of thanks.
My father is a hunter and as a child I went partridge hunting with him. I have also had lots of moose and deer meat so for me this wasn`t all that strange but to some it might be very strange.
