Dear Diane, I'm a newcomer to Thai food Unlike Chinese and Japanese cuisines, I'm discovering there's really nothing quite like it...sort of like a cross between Indian (lots of curries) Japanese (very healthy) and of course Chinese. Would you happen to have recipes for papaya salad and soft shell crab with seafood curry?
