Hand crafted Thai cuisine any night of the week
If you’re a lover of Thai food and could think of nothing better than eating it on any given night of the week, without having to open your front door, then you're going to love this.
Aharn Thai (which translates to Thai Food) is the lifetime work of Peter Maddison and his wife Nok who have gone above and beyond to create a 'hand-crafted' premium restaurant quality range of take-home packs for you to enjoy anytime.
Dropping into the Aharn Thai stall at the Newcastle Farmers Markets one Sunday morning, Peter explained in more detail,
“Aharn Thai is all about giving everyone the chance to indulge in this beautiful cuisine, to experience the aroma and that true Thai taste easily at home.”
Peter’s fascination with Thai cuisine and culture goes way back to the late 80's, and what has ensued is a long and fascinating hospitality story that you can read all about here.
Whilst their business journey has taken many different twists and turns along the way, what you’ll discover today is the result of Peter and Nok’s more than 60 years of experience in Thailand and with Thai food, as Peter explains,
“We have an immense amount of respect, love and passion for the art of Thai food.”
“To produce real Thai food it is very much a journey. It takes years to learn and understand how the macro nutrients of certain herbs and spices react when combined together and how the cooking temperature can affect them.”
Sticking to their stringent set of guidelines of being preservative-free, have no added artificial flavours, colouring or MSG and wherever possible contained in environmentally friendly or sustainable packaging, what Aharn Thai represents is the best of the ancient East, combined with the modern technologies of the West.
Peter explains, "our range has been designed to encompass the amazing flavours of real Thai food. But with the home cook in mind. We wanted people to enjoy the amazing flavours Thai food has to offer, however whether it be due to dietary requirements or just choice, we wanted people to be able to make a choice of what protein or vegetables they add to our dishes.
Peter likes to say “We bring the magic, you just add your favourite ingredients”
Browsing through the Aharn Thai menu range what you can expect to find are all the flavours and dishes you would be familiar with, but then Aharn Thai’s point of difference shines through.
