Beautiful in so many different ways,
This review is from: Thai Street Food (Hardcover)
I'd seen the other reviews that mentioned that this book is big, but i still wasn't prepared for the monster that has now taken up residence in our home - its huge!!! But absolutely beautiful. This is so much more than a recipe book, the information in there from the chef is really interesting and the photographs are worthy of their own book. So i guess its really a coffee table book that will also give you the most yummy thai food you coudl ever hope for. We've also got David Thompson's pink book and i find the recipes in that to be quite complex but stunning. This is a nice half way house. Its still quite complex and includes all the unusual ingredients you'd expect from this sort of book, but it all just feels more acheivable at home. I love it, and the only reason it hasn't got 5 stars is because it was too big to fit through the letter box so i had to go and collect it from our depot, which is always annoying. But just so you know - it comes well packed in a proper box so make sure you're going to be in for when it arrives!!
