Thai food is more than a cuisine but a lifelong passion. It is a love affair with deep roots in the country’s culture and most importantly to family. Every extended Thai family is a hive of foodies, from parents going to the market or cooking family meals, to extended family members bringing home snacks and sweets as gifts after every social outing or domestic sojourn.

Sharing communal dishes is common throughout Asian food culture, particularly with Thai food. Food sharing in Thai culture is a form of giving. Thai people place great attention on dining etiquette which requires diners to be refined and gentle in their manner as they eat, and share dishes with friends and family.
