Book Description

2 Feb 2006

In Simple Thai Cookery (published in hardback as Foolproof Thai Cookery), Ken Hom demystifies this delicious and popular cuisine. He describes the basic techniques needed to recreate authentic Thai food and demonstrates 40 of the most well-known dishes with step-by-step instructions and photographs to accompany every stage from start to finish.

Ken's recipes will appeal to the experienced cook and the novice alike as all are quick and easy to prepare and use readily available ingredients such as lemon grass, ginger and, of course, small Thai chillies. Foolproof instructions will guarantee excellent results every time, from healthy 'Spicy noodle salad' or the comforting 'Coconut chicken soup' to sweet and sour 'Pad thai' or hot and spicy 'Green curry prawns'.

With tried-and-tested recipes that include appetizing soups and starters, quick and easy fish, meat and vegetarian main courses and a variety of delicious accompaniments, this is an essential cookbook for anyone who loves Thai food.

He began his culinary career in his uncle's restaurant in Chicago and went on to teach at California's Culinary Academy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious and Simple 5 Dec 2008
By Clare
Format:Paperback
Every recipe in this book is simple, clean, authentic and delicious. If you like Thai food you will love this book. The instructions are easy to follow and even a novice can whip up a gastronomic delight. If you can get to a Thai supermarket and get thai basil, kaffir lime leaves and eggplants it makes all the difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and delicious 16 Oct 2010
By Julia
Format:Paperback
It is the perfect book to make home made Thai food. The ingredients are very easy to find, even in Spain (my location) where there is no much Asian food culture. And then, the food tastes like real Thai. Just love this book and absolutely recommend it!
10 out of 10!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Thai Cookery 30 April 2009
Format:Paperback
Excellent clear instructions and the list of ingredients isn't horrendous, though lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves aren't easy to find in my local supermarkets. After a trip to Thailand found the results more authenticate than the old Thai-style cookbook I own.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only buy 1 thai cookery book... 9 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My views on Ken Hom are well known at this stage.
If your previous experience of Thai cookery is buying a green curry paste, adding coconut milk, meat and some veg, then this book with take you to the next level. It's full of handy little hints (like adding cinnamon sticks to a Massaman) to give everything that authentic taste.
If you already do a bit of Chinese cooking at home, then making the jump to Thai isn't very difficult either technically or for acquiring new ingredients. Like Chinese cookery once you have invested in a few key cupboard stables then producing tasty authentic food is simple and very economical. Like Chinese cookery, Thai cookery is front loaded: 90% of the work is in the preparation: make sure you have everything ready before you put your wok on the stove.
I recommend this book: it's easy to follow and the results are great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 13 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
As someone who enjoys cooking and a lover of thai food, I was very excited for this book to be delivered. As soon as I flicked through the pages and looked through the recipes and ingredients it seems like a very english version of thai food. It may have been my own mistake for underestimating the word 'simple', however you will not need a single spice for this book and in my opinion, thai food needs spices!

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommend the Massaman Curry! 16 Jan 2011
By Buchy
Format:Paperback
My husband asked for this book for Christmas as he wanted to do more cooking but nothing too tricky as neither of us have the time. So far has just made just the one dish, a Massaman curry which was totally delicious!! I still thought there were a lot of ingredients, but it was worth it. Can't wait (for him) to try more of the receipes!
