The taste of peanut butter that children love to try and love (photo: Alon Masika, styling - Yael Magen)
We love Thai cuisine, and it's not just the hot and humid weather, because even Israelis who haven't visited the country like to eat what this wonderful cuisine has to offer.
Neta Levia prepared a wonderful dish of chicken strips with rice (is there anything more Israeli than that?) with the chicken coated in a delicious peanut butter sauce and the rice cooked with coconut liquid that gives it an aroma and flavors you have never tasted before.
Have a good vocation!
