Celebrate Thai New Year With Easy Curries From Thai Kitchen

LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 8, 2009) - Thai Kitchen has released some new products, as well as four new recipes, focusing on vibrant curry dishes to help Canadians celebrate the Thai New Year, also called the Songkran Festival, a four-day event which starts April 13.

Thai Kitchen Thin Rice Noodles capture an authentic Thai culinary experience. This new product contains no wheat, gluten, cholesterol, egg or fat. Along with Thai Kitchen's vast array of products including Sauces, Pastes and Coconut Milk (a new 160 mL version has just been released), it's never been easier to make authentic Thai cuisine at home.

"Songkran means passage and refers to the position of the sun in the solar system," says Eins Mutuc, Thai Kitchen Product Manager, McCormick Canada. "In ancient times, this was the time when the sun moved into Aries, where the sun was equidistant to the Earth. Traditions associated with this festival include releasing birds from their cages, throwing water, parades, and serving traditional Thai food."
