If you were to ask me what Thai dish brings me back to my childhood, the one dish that comes to mind is for Kao Tom a.k.a. Thai Rice Soup. My uncle always cooked my grandmother’s recipe for Kao Tom at our family reunions. This delicious dish was always guaranteed to be every generation favourite dish. My uncle would make a ginormous pot to ensure that there was enough for everyone. He woke me and my cousins up early in the morning to help prepare ingredients and it was also a good chance for us to catch up and see how everyone going.

Father’s Day is approaching which is over a week away. This year some of us will again be celebrating this special day in lockdown away from our dad’s. I have been thinking of my dad’s favourite fish, which is salted mackerel fish. He is always raving about this fish and often visits local markets or stops by street kiosks on the way to Bangkok to purchase it. He usually has fried salted fish with fresh sliced shallots, chopped birds-eye chilli, lime juice and steamed jasmine rice.

Fluffy and healthy steamed egg is a dish that’s always in my childhood memory. My mum always made this simple, yet delicious comfort dish for me. She made it either in the steamer or microwave. Her version of Steamed egg is full of flavour with lots of assortments like minced pork, vermicelli, black fungus and onion (Thai:ไข่ตุ๋น). This dish became my mum’s signature dish and what we asked her to cook for us every day.
