Thailand is a country that takes great pride in its cuisine but hasn't shown that enthusiasm in the past movies and dramas. Things are somewhat better, and Thai Tv dramas involve eating out with the other lead, cooking for them, or ordering food. Cooking for a love interest shows the main character's love for the other.
