I got this book as a xmas present for someone and liked it so much that I got myself a copy as well. I haven't actually used it yet but I am looking forward to trying out some of the recipes. There are colour photos for most of the dishes and all look easy enough to do at home with easy to read instructions, the ingredients being mostly readily available either in a supermarket or online and substitutes are often suggested for items that you might find difficult to obtain, like root ginger for galangal etc. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to dabble in Thai cooking for the first time.

this is a great book on making thai meals, it has really simple steps to follow and beautiful recipes, some need a little spicing up to my liking but thats because i like them really hot and spicy so for this just add more chillies, but for everyone out there that likes a bit of spice this is the book for you

HASH(0x8be04654) out of 5 stars Our Favorite Cookbook from Front to Back 26 April 2011
By TH - Published on
Format: Paperback
My husband and I love Thai food. We purchased several Thai and Asian cookbooks, but their complexity, ingredients, and organization were daunting for 2 newbies to Asian cooking. Then we chanced upon Linda Stephen's Complete Book of Thai Cooking. Attractive features include the color coded organization for each section of the cookbook, colorful photos scattered throughout, the very well designed page layout which clarifies the ingredients, usually 2-4 step directions, variations, and helpful comments. This user-friendly pattern makes it a breeze to follow the recipes. We started with the "Crispy Cucumber Salad." Delightful and easy! Next came "Scallops and Shrimp with Lemongrass and Coconut Milk." Wow! Scrumptious! My husband loves mussels, so "Mussels in Coconut Broth" became a weekly appetizer when mussels were available. We both love the simplicity of the recipes coupled with tasty results.

By adding a few ingredients to our pantry and fridge such as oyster sauce, fish sauce, coconut milk, fresh lemon grass and other ingredients as needed, we have built a foundation for many of the recipes. We have substituted lemon grass paste when we couldn't find fresh. Many ingredients turned out to be things that we usually have on hand such as fresh limes, cilantro, and red chilies. There are a few items to buy with some of the new recipes we try, but we find that most of the items are things we would probably buy anyway. We just wouldn't have been as adventuresome with seasonings and other additions.

This has become our favorite cookbook and has really jazzed up our weekly menus. We were so excited about the recipes that we purchased a copy for each of our 3 adult children. Finally banishing our fear of cooking Thai, I am sure that we will work our way through the complete book before long. Thank you, Linda Stephen, for an easy introduction to Thai cooking!

I have made 3 recipes so far and they have been great. My goal is to make recipes that are so delish, that my family no longer wants to eat at restaurants. I made garlic shrimp last nite and it was a winner.
HASH(0x8be04864) out of 5 stars Amazing Thai cookbook! 22 Aug. 2015
By Emily - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have had this book for a few years now, and have tried many of the recipes. All have been winners, and many of the soups, curries, and others are in regular rotation in our household. I highly recommend this book if you love cooking and want to learn Thai. Another awesome feature is the sidebars that give a bit of history about the recipe, and suggestions for substituting different meats and veggies in a dish to mix it up.
