Thai Food Is Like Playing Chess Then...

a: Thai food is to western food ~
b: Chess is to Draughts

What: "Thompson agrees that the complexity of Thai cuisine can be off-putting, but it's not an insurmountable challenge. "I've always made this comparison that if Thai food is like playing chess then cooking Western is like playing draughts." For those who don't know, and I didn't, "draughts" is British english for checkers."
