Foreigners with Thai spouses living in Khon Kaen were treated to a fun outing with an international food fair at City Hall on Thursday.
They got to watch demonstrations of Thai cooking and show their own skill at making spicy papaya salad in a somtam contest.
The event was part of the combined International Silk Festival, Phuk Siao Tradition and Red Cross Fair continuing through Sunday (December 10).
There were also a phuk siao (friendship-making) ritual, a silk-fashion show, concerts, exhibitions and muay thai matches.
The northeastern province, well-known for its high-quality silk and the mudmee tie-dyeing technique, is also famed for its sizeable population of “foreign sons-in-law”.
