For three years and a half I worked at an engineering firm located in Kansas City, MO. During the time working there I built great relationships and met one of my very good friends, Pat. I have to say that Pat is one of the most happy, caring, and kind persons I know. For Pat, eating was more than getting her belly full, but also an opportunity to share with people that she loved. Pat grew up Thailand and she likes to cook and share her food with everybody. Tom Kha Gai soup was one of the treats that she suprised me with at the office, and made my day. What I love about Tom Kha Gai soup is that brings in different flavors in one spoon. It is spicy, sour, and has a creamy texture that comes from the curry. This soup can be served with rice, and usually the restaurants serves it as starter of the meal. Before I share this recipe, I have to say that I feel really lucky for meeting Pat and having her as a friend. Thanks for teaching me how to make this delicious soup and for building the best memories that I have during the time that worked there!
