The recipes are well described and, if you flick about to different sections, give loads of details about about EXACTLY how to prepare ingredients, cook things and what it is you're looking for at each stage of cooking. what i have made has been good (or great) but it's been the most laborious shopping trips ever. I had hoped that this would help me eat delicious Thai food regularly which it hasn't, it's just too daunting for that.Read more ›
Visually gorgeous, this book takes you on a journey through Thai cooking with a real master as a guide. You learn every time you use it and your confidence grows with each recipe.
The history of Thai cooking was a revelation. The knowledge demonstrated by the author in this section comes from years of experience and makes the book a true learning experience.
The reference section and menu sections have been well thought out and provide the reader with loads of information and open up new avenues to explore.
And finally, the recipes, were mouth watering! The range and diversity is so large that it's hard to pick out a favourite but the green curry was a gob smacker.
