Finally, a Thai cookbook that lives up to its subtitle- quick and easy- and also provides delicious recipes for many dishes found at my favorite restaraunts. Beautiful pictures accompany simple recipes with easily obtained ingredients. The recipes deliver on their initial promise in that the dishes are excellent in presentation and taste. Illustrations demostrate key steps in preparing each dish. A must for anyone interested in cooking Thai food.

This book provides a person with all the basics needed for those popular Thai dishes such as Pad Thai and the curry based dishes. The book also provides pictures of the ingredients to be used for each recipe, which is extremely helpful when you're not sure if you're using the right ingredients. The directions are simple to follow. I'm Thai, and I found this book very helpful in learning how to prepare foods I miss from home.

I love cooking and have loads of cookbooks. This is by far my favorite book for cooking Thai food. I've had this cookbook for about 5 years, and despite the addition of 6 other Thai cookbooks to my library, this one is the most reliable. The dishes are all easy to prepare, and they taste delicious. Although I like my other books, but when I'm craving a Thai meal I always grab this gem with the hot pink cover first and know that I'll be delighted with my results.

I have always been intimidated at the thought of preparing Thai food. Not anymore! This book shows you just how easy it is to prepare delicious Thai dishes - some better than you can get in Thai restaurants! The beef salad is outstanding and the Thai Noodles are remarkably easy. I love this cookbook!!!

This was an impulse-buy cookbook I picked up randomly one day. I can't vouch that the recipes in this book 100% authentic to the very last detail (only because other books you pick up give super-complex versions of some of these recipes), but the book gives very simple & basic instructions for making wonderful meals that are VERY tasty. Despite its modest size of 88 pages, it provides you with a good variety of recipes-- from "Baked Rice in Pineapple with Cashew Nuts" (the primary recipe that caught my eye in the first place) to Chicken Satay to Thai Iced Tea.The book serves its purpose and lives up to its name, especially since I like to modify recipes to my taste anyways... and it has more to offer than pretty pictures of the finished product: it provides pictures of the ingredients AND of various steps in making the dishes. Great resource for someone who doesn't want to deal with super-complicated recipes but also wants room to be creative (it's easy to make basic adjustments to many of the recipes in order to personalize it to your own tastes). This is, by far, one of my favorite cookbooks. I'm almost tempted to buy all of the books in this Quick & Easy series.

We LOVE this cookbook! I loaned it to a friend and never saw it again and am thrilled to find it on ! My husband lived in Thailand for a while and he said that the recipes are very authentic. We made a lot of Thai food when we had this cookbook and it rivals some of the better Thai restaurants that we have eaten at. Easy to follow and understand and the end product is oh so good!

As the title mentions it's quick and easy Thai cuisine to try. You are in for a great surprise because you can choose the dish by the decadent color plates.

I also love the Vietnamese cookbook by this same series. Thai cooking is not hard and this book de-mystifies how it's done. Highly recommended.
