I checked this book out of my local library and then I liked it so much I bought it. I recently went to Thailand and wanted to learn to cook some of the incredible food. But it's a different world with different ingredients and spices. This book does a great job of explaining all the different vegetables and spices, how to select them and prepare them for cooking. I felt like I can take this book to an Asian market and use it as a reference. Some Thai cooking books already assume you know all this stuff. Also the photos were helpful and easy to read. All in all a great book!
This is a cookbook with what seems to me to be authentic recipes and nice photos of the completed dishes but some of the ingredients are hard to find. I have found lemon grass and Thai basil in my local Asian grocery but I still haven't actually been able to make many things in it yet since the some of the other ingredients just don't seem to be available locally, for example galangal and lime leaves. They can be ordered on the internet Fresh Thai Produce Kit but that adds an extra level of planning and expense to making these recipes. Unlike some other books, this one doesn't propose substitutions but I suppose that goes with being authentic.I live on the east coast near Washington, DC. Perhaps in places with a larger Thai community it would be easier to find the herbs and spices necessary to cook these dishes.
I bought this for a friend, she's tried recipes and hasn't complained. Was very happy with this as a gift.
THIS WAS ANOTHER FABULOUS THAI COOKBOOK. BOUGHT THIS BOOK ALSO FOR MY HUSBAND WHO IS THE CHEF IN OUR FAMILY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This book is great because of the step by step recipes that make cooking Thai food easy and the food is restaurant quality
