6

If this cookbook thing doesn’t work out, we’ve always got Bangkok. We’ll open a street stall of our own and take the others by storm with our unsurpassed version of their national dish. Sure, our competition will use similar ingredients, but our vibrant Pad thai will be adored for its spot-on sauce-to-noodle ratio, golden-cooked tofu and still-crispy bean sprouts. So delicious, we’ll have longer lines than the women offering “soapies.”
