Just one bite of these noodles will tansport you to Pattaya, a beachside resort in Thailand known for its lively nightlife and amazing street food. It is here you will find row after row of Pad Thai stands each with their own twist on the dish. As the name implies, these noodles were born and bred in Thailand. Although many think the tasty noodles date back centuries, the truth is the dish is only about 70 years old. In fact it was created by the Thai government as a post war stimulus package. The noodles helped to create new jobs in the rice and restaurant industries, encourage spending and generate pride and nationalism. (Maybe the US needs a special food stimulus dish too!!)
This kit contains two layers of pre-measured non-perishables displayed in museum quality keepsake containers and a full color brochure. In the brochure you'll find: A fresh ingredient shopping list, easy to follow preparation instructions, a 'Bite of History', information about the spices and sauces, cooking tips, After Dinner Trivia, table setting suggestions and much, much more!
Serves 6 - 8 adults
The way to make this dish for just a few is to start with the sauce. Combine all of the tamarind, palm sugar and fish sauce as per the instructions. Store the remaining sauce in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. Soak only the noodles you plan to use. Remember not to over soak as they will continue to cook and soften in the wok. This dish is not hard to make IF you lay out the items before starting to cook. Aside from the shrimp which can be omitted, there are no other non-Kosher ingredients. You can adjust the level of spice for each dinner participant.
The Kit includes: Fish sauce, tamarind sauce, pickled turnips, dried shrimp, dried rice noodles, chili powder, unsalted peanuts, palm sugar, tamarind candies, shopping list for fresh items, step-by-step preparation instructions, wok tips & techniques, a wok cheat sheet, authentic table setting suggestions, and Tea & Trivia to enjoy after your meal.
Fresh ingredients you will need: Baked tofu, chicken, eggs, shrimp, green onions,lime juice, garlic and bean sprouts.

This dinner was a total surprise. We thought we knew just how we liked our Pad Thai until we made this one. The flavors are subtle but certain. Like our other experiences with Destination Dinner kits, the directions are easy to follow. Just wish kits came in larger sizes so we could throw a party for a group of friends. This deserves to be shared.

I ordered this dish as a gift and the recipient was very happy with it. Said it was enough food for their family meal and plenty of left overs. They also said they were going to order some as gifts for friends because they were so satisfied.

Got this as a birthday gift and used it last night. The packaging was almost the best part of it! Very beautifully done. It would probably serve 10 people if you had some side dishes. Warning that the fish sauce contains salt that may have crystallized and it looks exactly like glass! Thank you destination dinners, this is such a great gift idea.
