So I have been addicted to reading a cook book that I just got on Thai Food, that, and I have hit my favorite Thai place here in Napa (shout out to Mini Mango) 3 times this week! Yes Mini Mango has the BEST Tom Ka Gai Soup I have ever had…ever!! This soup is Godly! I’m hoping that if I keep going enough, one day the owner will give me the recipe…fingers crossed. Any who, this cook book has been my daily reading before I go to bed. When I came across a recipe for Kaya a Thai Coconut Jam, I knew I had to give it a shot! I decided to make the mango/coconut blend called Mango Shrikaya, since I had a perfectly ripe mango on hand.
This jam is more like a custard to me personally but it is highly addictive and delicious!! I paired mine with simple buttered toast but this jam is a jack of all trades. I see it being used to top ice cream, fill cream puffs and drizzle over waffles. I could keep going, but you get the point. This jam, along with Mini Mango’s Tom Ka Gai soup, desperately make me want to go to Thai land..like ASAP!! (Hmmm…now if only I could convince the Husband, LOL!)
