    Overpowering Thai food aromas

    What's your most overpowering aromas and smells from a Thai kitchen.

    I'll kick off with steamed bamboo, the aroma seems to linger for days.

    You said smells from a Thai kitchen. If that's what he's cooking in a Thai kitchen then that's the aroma from a Thai kitchen.

    My missus has a fondness for homemade kimchi. Quite eye-wateringly bad. Not a chilli smell, but a "something died a few weeks ago" bad.

    Worse then her pla rah, which is saying something.

    ^^ Not allowed in my kitchen. Ninety percent of the Thai cooking is done outside, wife prefers it that way.

    Cook Thai food outside? Why if you have a cooker hood inside? My MiL reckons food taste better if cooked on a charcoal pot. What a load of bollix.
