A Combination of Thai Finger Food At Dan’s Party

Happy Birthday Dan

So with the information ready to hand and a ”Walk and Talk” required for a special birthday celebration for Dan Thorn we were delighted to arrange with Dan’s wife Claire the very same popular menu listed above.  Friends and family of Dan and Claire Thorn thoroughly enjoyed the food at Yeovil in Somerset and we were delighted to receive an email from Claire and Dan a couple of days after the event.

”Thank you  so much for making it a truly lovely night.  The ‘walk and talk’ food was excellent and delicious and everyone raved about it, saying it was the best food they had had at a party.  Dan and I will definitely recommend you.

Fun Food
 
In Thailand the alluring smell of tasty Thai treats is every where, diverting you from your intended path and causing you to make snack stop offs that you hadn’t planned on. Nowadays it would appear that like the rest of the world it is hard to find  time for a lot of  traditional home cooking in Thailand with the demands of modern-day life, but with food so readily available and with so many different delicious dishes to choose from it is not hard to see why the Thai people enjoy their street food so much. Thai Gourmet have a selection of Thai finger food menus called the ”Walk andTalk” menus where you can eat tasty Thai finger food at large gatherings without a plate, but with glass in hand and continue to socialise. In Thailand finger food is known as fun food purely for the purpose of snacking (khong gin len) literally play eating and this is constantly available day and night virtually any where you go. Roam amongst the market food vendors with their cooking carts or take a trek down the back streets or side roads (sois) and you will most certainly not be able to escape from fun food or any kind of food come to that matter.
All smiles at Dan’s party, with Dan second from the left concentrating on the left over spring rolls and wife Claire beside him.
