Food

The role of food and beverage is an important and symbolic one at traditional Thai weddings, with the majority of traditional Thai marital cuisines being sweet and sugary. Syrup, candied rice cakes, and cream are some of the most commonly used ingredients when preparing a traditional wedding feast, as the sweet flavours of the dishes symbolize bliss, love, and undying blessing. Khanom Kareaw, a dish consisting of twisted and sugarcoated bread strips, symbolizes the everlasting winding and oneness of the bride and groom. It is very sweet and flavorful, and is a traditional favorite of locals when it comes to weddings. Another traditional marital dish is the Foy Thong, otherwise known as the ‘golden silk threads’, is a noodle-like cuisine made out of egg yolks and syrup. Its flavorful taste and intriguing appearance plays a part in symbolizing values such as eternity, everlasting love, and longevity.
