Fun stuff from around the web
Grab a coffee and spend some times perusing our blog.
This is seriously awesome – the Swedish chef in a food van war with Gordon Ramsay and Gordon does all his own ‘bleeping’ – it’s a family show after all. Check it out:
Are you good looking? Do you have a great butt? If you do then perhaps you should visitTwisted Root Burgers where these and other qualities will get you a few cents off your bill. They have around twenty quirky discounts that can appear on their receipts. I love the slogan at the bottom of the receipt: “Meat is murder; tasty, tasty murder.”
Seeing this makes me want to resurrect our ‘Best Customer’ award which we used to run each year – basically the waiters would select the best customer in their section (certain criteria had to be met) and then we’d put the names in a hat at the end of the year – the winner would receive a trip for two to Thailand.
A Spirit House wedding has always been a fun affair even when it’s pouring rain. But not all weddings are such joyous occasions.

This one gets really philosophical – I love it:
Thai ads can be very clever – here’s a great series of ads for Cheers Beer:
I’m going to do some digging and try to find you how Thais do insurance ads – there won’t be a dry eye in the house.
The answer to the obsessive compulsive cook in your life.
Now when the recipe says ‘ cut into 1cm cubes’ or at 45 degree angles, this chopping board is the dream

Every morning on our tag-along tours I stop for a Thai Iced Tea at our local street vendor. Sickly sweet with condensed milk and orange in colour from tamarind husks, I thought this drink was pretty amazing – until I saw this:
Sometimes kitchen layouts just don’t go to plan – the work bench is too far from the stove etc. Here’s how an chef gets around this problem:
