How did Thai cuisine evolve?


How did Thai cuisine evolve?   Early Thai cooking methods practiced baking, grilling and stewing and it wasn’t until pre-16th Century that western, Chinese and Indian influences were married into the mix. The Thai’s first adopted some of the methods of the Chinese introducing frying, stir frying and deep frying in the late 1600’s along with Portuguese culinary variations and then moved onto to take elements from French, Dutch and Japanese cuisine in the 17 Century.
