▶︎ Kevin Amphan: The Fascist Origins Of Phad Thai

Do you know about the dark history of Pad Thai? Pad Thai is the dish that most Westerners will know. Kevin Amphan talks in Voices of UPF about the dish’s origin: Thai Dictator Phibun sought a dish that was both cheap and symbolic for the country. But cheap need not mean popular. Even today, many Thais dislike it, as it is tainted by the country’s authoritarian present and past. Kevin has an Instagram account where you can follow his cooking skills: @just.lagom.
