History

In Thailand, gold is regarded very highly not only for its intrinsic value but for its association with wealth. As Buddhism is the centre of the Thai way of life, we Thais adorn our offerings to Buddha in religious ceremonies or festivals with gold leaf. This tradition is carried over to desserts which incorporate the Thai word for gold, thong, into their names: thong yib, thong yod and foi thong. These desserts not only have the word for gold in their names, but they are golden in colour as well. People believe their origin is from a royal palace of ancient Ayutthaya period.

"Thong yib" means pinched gold
"Thong yod" means gold drop
"Foi thong" means gold fibre
