I had the opportunity many years ago to live and work in Thailand for an extended period of time. And I fell in love with Thai food and their extensive use of herbs and spices. Thai red curry paste has been a true life saver, especially when I miss homemade Thai food. I usually make it in a large quantity and refrigerate or freeze the leftovers. No more Thai takeouts!
