This week on Eat Your Words, Cathy Erway is joined by the authors of Pok Pok: Food and Stories From the Streets, Homes, and Roadside Restaurants of Thailand: Chef Andy Ricker and JJ Goode! Tune into this episode to hear discussions about authenticity in Thai cuisine, and how regional traditions influence flavor. Find out why Andy does not try to reinterpret Thai cuisine, but rather recreate it in a dignified way. How have Western food ways turned tourists off to Thai classics? Find out all of this and more on this week’s edition of Eat Your Words! Thanks to our sponsor, Many Kitchens. Music by The California Honeydrops.
