BANGKOK, 6th November 2018 (NNT) – The Ministry of Culture has accelerated the preparation of a master plan to preserve and promote Thai food wisdom. 

The Culture Minister, Vira Rojpojchanarat, said on Monday that the Committee for the Preservation and Promotion of Cultural Heritage held a meeting to consider the draft guideline on the preparation of the master plan, which will be in effect from 2020 to 2024. 

Mr. Vira said the Thai food wisdom has currently been influenced by foreign food and its characteristics could gradually vanish. 

He said the master plan will be developed to promote and preserve the heritage of Thai food in a sustainable manner, so that all sectors can jointly promote and preserve the heritage of Thai food effectively.

So where do you draw the line? Will this mean no more MSG added in Thai dishes? No more ketchup anywhere near Thai food, etc. 

 

Also, I saw tom yung gung pizza. Which country should be more aggrieved? The Thais or the Italians? 

 

If people wanna play around with their food to make it more delicious/palatable for whatever reason, they can. It's called evolution. To each their own.

 

Change is always happening. You can either accept it or put your fingers in your ears and scream. Either way, it's happening.

Now, if that ridiculous ministry should decree to restrict consumption of instant noodles (because it is a Japanese invention, thus non-Thai, you know?), a revolution surely is going to break out.

To all the usual Thai moaners, you know other countries do this, right? They preserve and protect dishes, ways of cooking etc. 

 

This is no different, it doesn't mean they will stop you lot eating at KFC or something.

If you give 100 Thai cooks a single meal to prepare, all using the same ingredients but not limiting the amounts then you will get 100 meals that are similar but each will be subtly different.

 

My wife makes a meal one way and my neighbour makes the same meal but it tastes differently. If you eat the same meal in say 20 restaurants it will still be the same meal but taste different.  my wife will make a meal less spicy for me, more spicy for our son and even more spicy for herself.

 

The minister is talking from the same place that all ministers talk from and he has little idea of reality.

 

The other paper has a similar post but they are also talking of fusion foods.

What did they use before chillies were introduced, chillies are native to STH America not Asia.

Similar to India pepper was the spice used until those Portuguese  ( spelling? ) introduced chillies that as you say came from the other side of the world.

That would mean the real Thai food from history would use pepper and not chilli.

Funny old game, innit??
