When colder weather hits, I begin dreaming of the Thai dish tom kha soup. My former flower boss and a major mentor in my life, Tam Ashworth, introduced me to this amazing meal when my husband and I lived in San Diego.
Side Story: I managed Tam's floral business [Isari Flower Studio] for a few years and it was such an influential period in my life. Tam has a background as a haute couture model in Thailand, interior designer in Paris, and lived in England for many years. She seriously is not only an amazing person, but she has an eye for absolutely everything... fashion, flowers, & food :) Also, she loves to travel and hearing her stories from abroad was always thoroughly entertaining.
So back to the soup. After being on-site all day with Tam for a major event or wedding installation, we would grab some food. Tam is Thai and she always knew the best Thai places in San Diego... and she introduced me to tom kha. Foggy, rainy days in San Diego just called for this savory dish! Now, whenever it rains... I get the craving.
