Deep in the heart of Southern Thailand, nestled in the town of Nakhon Si Thammarat, a culinary legacy was born. It all started with Yai, a remarkable woman who lived to the ripe old age of 101.
Yai (hope I’ve spelt her name correctly!) was renowned for her triple chili sauce, and her signature dish, kanom jeen nam ya (spelling?), was beloved by all. Her delicious dishes brought smiles to the faces of all who tasted them, and she found true happiness in the happiness of others. Her granddaughter, Nat, began helping Yai make the curry paste when she was around 5 years old.
Years later, Nat, with her partner Ben, began Banana Blossom Salads, and now the world can experience the same mouth-watering flavours that made Yai’s dishes so special.
