Karen Food


I eat mostly all Karen food at Thailand, but when I moved to U.S.A. I mostly never eaten a Karen food. I thought every food my mom cook was Karen food, but when I ask my mom about the food she cooked. It wasn’t or ever Karen food, my grandpa mostly cook Karen food but never did. 
When I look at Karen food, it mostly cooked rice with cooked fish. My favorite fish to eat with cooked rice is catfish or any fish that don’t have bones I have to eat through. In mostly Karen food, it involve rice and some kind of fish. Karen food have lots of spices. The most abound food is rice, as ThaiLand is the biggest exporter of rice in the world. 

Karen food is a cutlers thing because It show are identity. We Karen people cook and eat difference from the other cutlers. You can tell someone religion by their food. Mostly all cutlers have different food they like, Hmong like cooking and eating their food, and etc.
