|Thai coconut soup (tom kha gai)|
That's not to say that my home version is bad, either -- just different.
Case in point, this Thai coconut soup.
I first had this soup at the Tiny Thai restaurant in my soon-to-be new hometown of Essex, Vermont. It's fantastic -- a flavorful, milky broth with just a hint of tangy lime.
So I searched the internet for some recipes -- and found that most of the necessary ingredients are not readily available to me. Dag.
Back to the drawing board.
