This week on Eat Your Words Cathy Erway sits down with Nancie McDermott to talk about Thai food! In 1975, Nancie went to Thailand with the Peace Corps to teach English as a second language to Thai middle school students. When she came back to the states, she started learning all about Thai cooking. Now Nancie has written three different Thai cookbooks, as well as several other recipe books for pies, curry, stir-fry, and more! Her cookbooks have helped make authentic and traditional Thai food more accessible for people cooking in American kitchens. Tune in to hear about her experience in Thailand and her creative approach to cooking Thai food in the states! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

“Thai culture is very in the moment– let’s find joy, let’s get along, let’s celebrate where we are right now.” [7:57]
