Review: Master Thai cooking in the comfort of your own kitchen with these helpful kits from A Taste of Thai. They include coconut milk, seasonings and curry. You add the meat, vegetables, and rice or noodles. We tried the Red Curry with chicken and fresh vegetables and paired the Lite Yellow Curry with shrimp and a frozen stir-fry vegetable mix. Both were flavorful approximations of their restaurant counterparts - especially the yellow. Unfortunately, the dinner kits are difficult to find. We've seen them at the "gourmet" locations of chain stores like Super Fresh.-
