Laap is a top dish on menus in Thai restaurants abroad. Unfortunately, laap has been diminished by oversimplified descriptions, by bland seasonings, and even by an incorrect English transcription, as “larb”.
Laap, a dish traditionally cooked and consumed by men, is an integral part of the village social fabric, commonly served at ceremonies and celebrations, and presented to important guests. The enormous effort required to manually prepare laap for a community ceremony is orchestrated by skilled, talented individuals with years of experience.
