B: Well, as you know I was in Thailand last month,and I took a cooking class! So I prepared some ofmy favorite dishes.
A: Great idea! As long as I don’t get food poisoning!So what is onthe menu tonight?
B: Ok, for starters we have Tom Yam soup. It’s a bit spicy, but really good!
A: This is delicious! The ginger and lemongrass really gives it a nice taste!
B: Now this next dish is one of the most famous. Foreignerscall it papaya salad butthe proper name is Tom Sam. It is a spicy salad made from a mix of fresh vegetables including shredded unripened papaya and tomato.
A: This is delicious! The combination of sour and spicy is really interesting! I could have this everyday!
B: Ok, now forthe last and best dish in my opinion. This is called Pad Thai. It’s stir-fried noodles with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, red chili pepper plus bean sprouts, shrimp and tofu and garnished with crushed peanuts and coriander. It’s practically Thailand’s national dish!
A: Wow, this is great! I never knew Thai food was so creative and delicious!
B: Want some more?
A: I’m stuffed!
