I have five Thai cooking books and this is by far my favorite. It has easy to follow instructions with descriptions of desired results, such as "stir fry until golden brown but not crispy", instead of "stir fry 5-7 minutes". Most all of the recipes I've tried are delicious and I return to them time and time again. And all of the ingredients required are easily available at your asian market. This isn't the newest Thai cookbook out there, but it's the best one I've tried.
I had the pleasure of taking a cooking class from Kamolmal Pootaraksa in August of 1986. I have tried almost all of the recipes in the book with success as long as I keep to the instructions. Kamolmal comes from Bangkok Thailand where her family has owned and operated a Thai restaurant for 3 generations. She placed a lot of care in the cooking class and also in her cookbook. She sincerely wants Americans to learn the secrets of Thai cuisine. I'm ordering 2 more books to keep in case I loose my original. It is the only book I do not loan out to anyone.
This is still one of the best Thai cookbooks and I've been collecting them for years - not Americanized, uses real Thai ingredients - a delight!
This unassuming paperback is my favorite Thai cookbook. It explains clearly and simply the common ingredients, where to get them and how to handle them. The basic curries are an aromatic delight while assembling, and my dinner guests always give the final results rave reviews. The cooking techniques are clearly explained and easy to follow. What more can you ask from a cookbook? Well, beautiful photos of food presentations, I suppose--but I'm usually disappointed with the results of those cookbooks!
Absolutely the best! I have several Thai cookbooks, but this is always my go to book. Very clear and easy to follow instructions and all the recipes really capture the flavours of Thailand. My copy is dog-eared, fish sauce stained and held together by copious amounts of tape (I've had it for nearly 30 years). When it finally gives up the ghost, I will definitely be replacing it!
I have a friend that is Thai and he swears by this book. Great simple recipes. No unneccesary ingredients. A timeless classic. It's the only Thai cookbook that I bother to own.
This is a great book! The recipes are detailed and easy to follow and the results are fantastic. You won't be sorry if you add this to your collection!
