A master of Thai herbal medicines and Thai food, Dr. Komsan Tinnakorn na Ayudhya, said once that we are supposed to take what locals take, so we can stay healthy in wherever we are.
“Once I was in Italy for a month. I was taking serious for what I had to eat daily. I chose Italian food, even though I was missing Thai food. That was for maintaining my body system in the different weather and environment.”
Local recipes are considered the best for regional living. Thailand has also obtained its old recipes to survive the living in the region. Located at 13°45′N 100°29′E, Thailand has a tropical wet and dry, while the south and the eastern tip of the east have a tropical monsoon climate. This has led ancient Thais or Siamese who have been living here created their own recipes just survive the climate.
Tom, Yum, Tum, and Gaeng dishes are recommended by Dr. Komsan for which they are suitable for ones locally staying here.
