Series 1 · Episode 6

You can't really separate Monarchy and a Buddhist heritage from Thai culture and cuisine. Ceremony and tradition are highly valued. In this episode we witness the gentle rituals of a monastry located near Marion's family village and watch as the Monks collect dishes prepared for them with respect by the local villagers. Marion and Noi cook breakfast for the monks in the temple kitchen and present it at a Buddhist ceremony - then Marion visits the amazing new temple being built in the village. Thailand's Iron Chef shows Marion how the King would expect his Royal Dumplings presented. Other traditions featured include the uniquely beautiful art of fruit carving. Marion also makes Miang Kham - a classic Thai snack with a kapow befitting princes and paupers alike. Dishes include... Bitter Gourd Stirfry with Duck Eggs Chor Muang (Steamed Royal Dumplings) Miang Kham - A spicy snack where you're eating many things in one bite
