You can’t go wrong with Thai food. Even terrible Thai food is edible — and I’ve had some. Twenty years ago, when Thai green and red curries started appearing randomly on takeaway menus in chip shops, Chinese and Indian restaurants, very few of us knew what it was supposed to taste like.

Some young ones had started returning from backpacking holidays in Thailand and word got out about how fabulous the food was everywhere they went. Street vendors, beach cooks, restaurants and hotels offered brilliantly fresh dishes, they reported, featuring all sorts of flavours previously unknown to us.
