Probably the oldest food technology transferred from our northern
ancestor, Nam has a unique way of preserving meat with unmatched flavour
among other Thai dishes. The cottage industry still uses banana leaf
to manually wrap the product while modern meat packers deploy
automation to process Nam which is stuffed in hi-tech packaging tubes.
Because Nam requires pork rind, during the festive seasons, it's not
unusual to witness a shortage of pork rind around the country.
