    Teach me to cook fast and tasty Thai food

    I have come to the conclusion that the Thai food served at my ex's hotel is .. well.. slop!!

    It may be cooked by a genuine Issaner, but the cook (ex's sister) cannot, IMHO cook for toffee!

    Her Pad Thai is swimming in grease, when it should be dryish and with subtle flavours.

    Her Thai fried rice with chicken is plain boring.

    The only decent cook in the family is ex's LT BF, who actually cooks really nice food for me, but is always too busy arguing with the ex to find time to cook for customers.

    In a few months from now, I'll complete my new B&B (my business, no women involved). I want to be able to cook tasty Thai food that's quick and easy to prepare, but is a delight to the taste buds.

    So... give me some food ideas. Bear in mind that right now, I cannot cook decent food if my life depended upon it...

    Go and do one of those Thai cookery courses that teach you how to shop for the best ingredients.

    If you cook Thai food with shit ingredients, it's going to come out shit every time.

    There's your problem. Issan food is absolute shit. Cheapest possible ingredients prepared served with a total lack of imagination other than to spice it up as much as possible, so that people cant taste the crap they are eating.

    End of story.

    Hire a chef. Preferably an Italian.

    No, it's me who wants to learn to cook decent Thai food for my own B&B - not the ex's hotel. She can continue to cook slop. But I want to be able to cook up some Thai meals that astound my guests...

    And I'm not Italian.

    Why bother? I've never ate or ordered Thai at a hotel in Thailand.. If i wanna eat that, i just walk across the road to the street vendor.. or a local run establishment..

    When i order or eat at a restaurant in a Thai hotel it's usually lasagne, burger and chips or pizza
