Saskatchewan’s own Stacey Martin of This Lil Piglet is participating in the challenge and says it’s truly an honor to have been chosen to compete. “I love supporting brands I’m passionate about, brands that my family loves and uses regularly,” Martin said in a recent interview with Regina’s Leader Post. “What I love about Thai Kitchen is that anyone can take one or two of their products, create a simple, easy and flavour-packed meal in under 30 minutes.”One of Stacey’s favorite aspects of Thai cuisine is that it screams healthy. “The colours of ingredients are beautiful and the flavours explosive; when I cook Thai, I know my family is eating foods that are both nutritious and flavourful.”
Stacey’s favorite Thai Kitchen product is the Coconut Milk, largely due to it’s versatility. She’s incorporated coconut milk into soups, casseroles and desserts because it’s a healthier alternative to the usual creamy ingredients. Stacey’s second favourite would be the Sweet Red Chili Sauce because she loves the mix of spicy and sweet; no matter the meat, this sauce makes a perfect combination. And third would be the Red Curry Paste. Stacey says it adds a little kick to any meal and is perfect for a meat rub or just added right into your rice. She’s even made a vinaigrette salad dressing with it and it was amazing.
