A country where dishes are prepared as follows:
1. Walk down the neighborhood grabbing anything (living/non-living/etc.) you can lay your hands on.
2. Come home with your booty and dump the stash in a huge bowl of hot water.
3. Boil the stuff for a randomly chosen length of time.
4. Invite your mates over, grab the nearest peice of wood (to be used as sticks) you can find and swallow with your eyes closed.
5. Walk away from the table as if nothing had happened.
A good outcome of the above recipe is "Paad Thai" probably the yuckiest dish ever prepared in the history of Homo Sapiens.
