An especially interesting soup involving toasted rice and pork boiled in spices and shrimp flavoring is the invention of a tribe on the Thailand border. The cuisine of this fascinating, often-ignored nation emphasizes a dazzling array of ingredients and culinary techniques which will win praise for any cook.
