Book Description

16 May 2002
Food stalls are an essential part of Thai life and can be found on countless city streets, market forecourts, roadside drive-ins, harbour walls and railway platforms across the country. Most Thais perch on tiny stools as the traffic hurtles by, and eat at these open air, one-dish specialist stalls, at least once a day, because they provide the freshest, most authentic Thai cooking. Now Vatcharin Bhumichitr invites his readers to join in the Thai streetfood experience, introducing key street dishes from across Thailand - beginning in Bangkok and its surrounding areas, then moving on to the southern seashores, the isolated northeast and finally the far north. Covering soups, noodles, salads, stir-fries, grilled dishes, curries and desserts, this tantalising collection includes such favourites as Som Tam, a fiery grated raw papaya salad and Khao Niew Mamuang, a mango and sticky rice creation - easily the most popular Thai dessert. Vivid location shots will satisfy every armchair traveller, and the 'Before You Begin' section, introducing ingredients and cooking techniques, provides all you will need to take up your wok with confidence!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever Thai cookbook!!! 22 Dec 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an avid collector of thai recipes I have to say that this book is the best ever!! The recipes are very easy to follow. The ones that I have tried are very authentic tasting too - I lived in Thailand for 2 years and sampled a lot of food whilst out there so I know what they should be like. Vatcharin has really got it right in this book - his recipes are "spot on" and the ingredients are now very easy to find in the UK. A lot of the dishes are very quick to cook too - as street food is. I would recommend that anyone interested in thai cooking - from beginer to experienced cook sould buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Yam, Yum! 5 Feb 2005
Format:Paperback
From the cover page, this book is beautifully illustrated, with wonderfully atmospheric images of life in Thailand, along with well arranged photos of many of the dishes and ingredients.
The recipes themselves are also nicely presented, clearly formatted, with the names of the dishes in both English and Thai.
The main recipes within the book itself are split into 5 sections, representing the 5 culinary districts covered in this edition. Examples include; from the Bangkok chapter Pad Thai Gung (Thai fried noodles with prawn). From the 'North' chapter; Grat Dook Moo Tod (Deep Fried Spare Ribs). And from the 'by the sea' chapter Yam Talay (Hot and Sour Seafood Salad).
The introduction too is fascinating, with insights into life in Thailand and how food fits into to it. It also contains a guide into ingredients, techniques and more, which may go into making even the most basic of the dishes. Additionally, the recipes for the many of the curry pastes which are the basis for many of the dishes in the book are also collated within the chapter.
All in all, Smashing!

Bought the book a couple of years ago on my return from Thailand. It reminds me of all the delicious food I tasted over there. The recipes are of the most authentic I have seen. Buy it for a taste of paradise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Thai food book 24 May 2013
By SteM
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guy was writing books about Thai food before David Thompson had heard of Thailand. A great book demonstrating many basic dishes, but there are many superb lesser known dishes like 'Kanom jeeb' too. Well well worth the price!
