In the Kitchen With: The Bangkok Cookbook’s Spicy Corn Salad – Design*Sponge

Earlier this year, I was listening to BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme episode about Thailand’s Royal Project. The Royal Project, started in 1969, was an idea of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej to transform opium-growing land into sustainable agricultural crops that produced more income for the growers than their opium trade produced, and to replace expensive imported produce with locally grown versions.  Listening to how this project has transformed the variety of food available in Thailand enabled me to more fully understand the story behind author Leela Punyaratabandhu’s recipe for Som Tam Khao Phot (Spicy Corn Salad) in her recent cookbook, Bangkok: Recipes and Stories from the Heart of Thailand. Usually I look forward to summer’s corn so that I can make creamed corn, one of my absolute favorite dishes. This year, Spicy Corn Salad moves to number one! –Kristina
