5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Word on Thai Food, 26 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Thai Food (Hardcover)
This is a truly impressive book. It is a thoroughly researched reference, a history and finally - 140 pages in - a recipe book, and a very well-written one at that.
Thai cooking is not just Thompson's work, it's his vocation. Thai restaurants abound, but the majority are most kindly described as ordinary. Thompson's Sydney restaurant was never that, and his London restaurant has a stellar reputation (with prices to match apparently).
If you want to have a go at really understanding and cooking your own Thai food, if you can source the rather intimidating lists of ingredients and if you have the time to put it all together, then this book is absolutely essential. It's not cheap, but I don't think it's premature to call it a classic; its purchase can be justified as an investment.
