next morning and I'm up at dawn to report for duty with the sausage queen like most of Thailand mrs. Rudd is a Buddhist today she's preparing a feast for a traditional house blessing given by monks from the local temple puts me straight to work making the centerpiece of the feast a classic spicy pork curry called hung Lai mrs. Rhoades recipe starts with the same foundation as nearly every authentic Thai dish that's the secret they're a really good curry paste and it seems to be the start of everything this is an important recipe to add to my Thai repertoire a cheap but tasty cut of pork goes in okay then cane sugar dark soy and a touch of tamarind whether missing the run liked or not I'm determined to learn every bit of this recipe excuse me sweet pea always had no secrets she's just stuck the ginger in there you've got to tell me so I can soak and follow this we promise no secrets she says you're gonna steal her the recipe I'm not gonna steal them but mrs. Rhoades recipe is a great inspiration delicious rich sweet sour is very fragrant as well and they've got a real cheap cut the pork in there but it's just starting to melt absolute delicious the guests of honor have arrived to bless the house they take all the bad spirit have the house yeah it's out because really like to leave with a peaceful happiness it's fascinating and a real privilege to be here but I can't sit around enjoy myself I got work to do started nudging me tell him to get back downstairs time to finish off the dish sir you don't argue with her that's for sure these monks survive solely on food they're given but I wonder if they'll approve of my donation the man says is delicious that's a great privilege for me to be here and to give you the chance to cook for them I don't think they know who I am they don't wash – sorry – it's kitchen nightmare this seems like a good moment to make a great escape and visitor okay thank you so you put your arm around there and do them around there that's it and then squeeze tight and squeeze excellency wasn't that bad thank you so much thank you delicious excellent good bye unbelievable up north has been amazing what I'm discovering a new new textures new fragrant flavors like I've never had before which is refreshing and the interesting thing for me is that there's so much more to Thai curries than just a red and a green and it all starts with that amazing paste
