Northern Thai Food with Tapestry Suppers in Mountain View, CA

© Penguin Random House and Austin Bush.   I love "The Food Of Northern Thailand" cookbook. I am from Ampoe San Pa Tong in Chiang Mai, which falls in the broader region that Austin focused on for this book. No one actually knows that town except for a handful farangs (foreigners) who really spend their time to explore that region beyond the Night Bazaar and elephant tours. I did not expect it, but I ended up learning more about the history and foodways of a place I grew up in through this book.  A first reading of the book left me feeling unsure about my ability to cook from it. Then I reread it more carefully with an open mind, but I still worried about being unable to find certain ingredients such as fermented bean disks or mak kuen, a type of pepper. I was delighted to discover that most of the ingredients required are easily available at my local markets, inspiring me to feature the book's recipes at my pop-ups and for this Tapestry Suppers event.  For example, this summer, we have an abundance of eggplants (whether Japanese, Chinese or Italian - they all do the job!), tomatoes and peppers at the market. Spring onions with green tops and bulbs are so sweet and tender right now, they are a perfect substitute for Chinese onions used in the book. We are serving Akha-style mashed potatoes with Akha-style meat loaf, dishes that sound familiar to us but are also very different in their seasoning and cooking techniques. Even the mushrooms and yu choy in this menu are cultivated locally in Santa Cruz County. The meat is from Llano Seco Ranch, its already so flavorful and sweet and it gets even better when cooked in banana leaves over a charcoal fire.  I encourage you to use just a spoon and your hand with this meal. Grab a piece of vegetable and scoop up a little dip (don’t double dip, of course). Peel a charcoal-roasted egg. Grab a piece of meat and sticky rice for a one-bite delight. Then chase it all down with a very tart soup!

In August, we’re cooking from The Food of Northern Thailand cookbook by Austin Bush!

Khao soi, a chicken -or beef-based curry broth made rich with coconut milk, fragrant with a mild dried spice mixture, and bulked out with wheat-and-egg noodles, is without a doubt Chiang Mai’s— if not northern Thailand’s— most famous food item…
Today, most vendors in Chiang Mai attribute khao soi to the Jeen Haw, Muslims of Yunnanese-Chinese descent who, as early as the sixteenth century, plied a web of overland treading routes that linked Yunnan, northern Thailand, and Mawlamyine (in present-day Myanmar). In the early twentieth century, some Jeen Haw began to put down roots in Chiang Mai, predominately in the area east of the walled city known now as Ban Ho (“Jeen Haw Village”), or in English as the Night Bazaar. It is approximately this period that we begin to hear about khao soi, a dish that was allegedly sold and eaten exclusively by the Jeen Haw. But just about every long-standing vendor of the dish in Chiang Mai claims that the khao soi prepared by their predecessors bears little resemblance to the dish we know today. 
Several vendors told me that the original khao soi included noodles made from rice, not the current wheat-and-egg variety. Others mentioned that the early version of the dish was topped with minced meat stir-fried with pickled vegetables, not the larger cuts of curried meat that we know today. And nearly every body agrees that the original khao soi did not include coconut milk, a defining element of the contemporary dish. ..

a northern Thai-style dip of grilled chilies, shallots, and garlic, serves with market vegetable (v)

We’re cooking from “The Food of Northern Thailand” cookbook by Austin Bush
“The food of northern Thailand is a world away from the highly refined, royal court- and Chinese-influenced style of cooking associated with Bangkok and central Thailand—the food that most of us familiar with. It’s a cuisine with its own distinct identity, one that is rustic and earthy, meaty and fragrant; one with roots in the Thai repertoire but with branches that extend beyond he country’s borders; a cuisine that manages to feel ancient and contemporary, domestic and foreign, all at the same time” 
“Compared to those of Thailand’s other regional cuisines, northern Thailand’s dishes are arguably the least spicy. Unlike the refined, court-influenced style of cooking n Bangkok and central Thailand, there’s relatively little effort to include or balance the four flavors of salty, sour, sweet, and spicy in a single dish. Instead, many northern Thai dishes, broadly speaking, push more in just one or two directions, typically emphasizing herbal, bitter, fragrant, and/or meaty flavors. Often, the flavor of a dish come from one or two herbs, spices, or other ingredients, rather than a complex blend of multiple seasonings.”

Often, the flavor of a dish come from one or two herbs, spices, or other ingredients, rather than a complex blend of multiple seasonings.”

. . .

“The Akha is one of Thailand’s nine officially recognized hill tribes, ethnic minority groups who inhabit the remote mountainous area of the north. With origins in southern China and the Tibetan Plateau, the Akha and other hill tribes began to migrate south approximately two hundred years ago, eventually settling in Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, and northern Thailand. With the more fertile valley areas of northern Thailand already occupied by the Thai and other groups, the hill tribes were forced to make do in the regions’s more distant elevated areas. Not surprisingly, living at high altitudes in far-flung locations meant that many hill tribe groups had to become almost entirely self-sufficient, subsisting on a repertoire of gathered items and the type of high-altitude, cold-weather crops—corn, potatoes, chayote, and a variety of leeks and onions—that one tends to associate more with the United States or Europe than rural Thailand”-Austin Bush.

. . .

“‘ We use a combination of chili and salt to season most dishes.’ explains Jenny Yokryji, an Akha from Doi Chang, in Chiang Rai. ‘Fish sauce is a newer Thai thing—some old Akha people can’t even eat it,’ she tells me, before adding emphatically, ‘We can’t go without chili and salt’”-Austin Bush.

http://www.birichino.com    BIRICHINO  About the name- Birichino-  biri-kino . Like locksmiths in the United States that add additional AAAs onto their names to be the first listed in the telephone directory, and drawing on deep reserves of innate marketing genius, we went in search of something unpronounceable to English speakers, yet also difficult to remember that began with A or B. Alluce was an early favorite, seeming to evoke lightness and air in English, but in fact translating as big toe. Seeking something with that playfulness, though about some things we profess to be deadly serious, and inspired by the surprising, slighty racy character of our first wine, the Malvasia Bianca that leads one on to thinking sweet, and delivers something else entirely, we hit on Birichino, meaning naughty in Italian. And who doesn't consider themselves just a little bit naughty, after all?

Thai Comfort Food with Tapestry Suppers in Mountain View, CA

Screen Shot 2019-04-17 at 4.18.44 PM.png

Tapestry Suppers is a food-focused movement that resists hate. We use the power of the meal to foster community, build awareness about different cultures and support charitable causes. We believe that diversity strengthens and enriches communities, and that food is a powerful tool to connect with and learn about other cultures.

Our mission is to:

  • Elevate underrepresented immigrant voices;

  • Educate the public about the diversity of food cultures, using our gatherings as a platform for real, in-person connection and conversation; and,

  • Support charities that work with immigrant and underprivileged populations.

©Danielle Tsi   "I am excited about this menu because it is a vegetarian menu featuring bold Thai flavors that does not rely on tofu or meat substitutes. When I started to cook for Hanloh, I had to be creative with vegetarian and vegan dishes. I struggled with tofu and meat substitutes which can be delicious, but when used without intention, they don’t make great dishes and actually diminish the complexities and nuances of flavor that make Thai cuisine so unique."
