As a writer, I always have a lot of questions about everything, and I usually act like a Country Bum in the City or newcomer, out-of-towner everywhere I go. So, this vlog is following my curiosity, my trips, my meals, through which I hope to bring you some local (Thai) perspective in this series. So please stay tuned.
I wish you could taste the MSG, loaded in the ‘live’ meat-less meat patties that I spent close to Bt500 for. I read about those new products a lot and thought about them a lot because they are touted by the global media as the new great things to eat.

Thailand has never been known as cheese producers, but nowadays a lot of people are proving that old notion wrong. In this episode, we introduce you to a Thai veterinarian who beats the odds and culinary culture while producing artisanal farmstead goat cheeses in her hometown of Nakhon Pathom.
Usually a town so close it is overlooked, Nakhon Pathom has proved, at least for us, to be a food haven and a place great for a short escapade. Merely 50 kilometres west of Bangkok, this is a town full of histories, beautiful and peaceful sites, and local deliciousness. We were there for a short weekend and liked it. :D
The best Yum Som O (Thai Pomelo salad) must be made from the delicious GI-protected Nakhon Chai Si pomelos. ‘Nakhon Chai Si Pomelo’ is a registered brand, only pomelos grown in the three districts of Nakhon Pathom can be called as such.

All so cute and very delicious. Available from December 1, 2019 - January 5, 2020.
