The Ingredient: Coconut Milk

Chef Tiffany has suggested to use this next ingredient in the crock.  She is notorious for loving Thai food.  I remember the first time I ever ate Thai food was with Tiff.   I had no clue what anything was on the menu, and she made great suggestions!  I remember trying the coconut soup.  It sounded so bizarre to me becuase when I think of coconut, I do not think of Thai cuisine, I immediately think of island foods from Hawaii or rum drinks like Pina Coladas.  The flavors from my dinner with Tiff are still stuck in my memory because I never knew a soup could taste this amazing!  It had two main flavors, milky sweet and spicy hot.  I can not wait to try the next recipe!
