I got this book as a xmas present for someone and liked it so much that I got myself a copy as well. I haven't actually used it yet but I am looking forward to trying out some of the recipes. There are colour photos for most of the dishes and all look easy enough to do at home with easy to read instructions, the ingredients being mostly readily available either in a supermarket or online and substitutes are often suggested for items that you might find difficult to obtain, like root ginger for galangal etc. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to dabble in Thai cooking for the first time.
this is a great book on making thai meals, it has really simple steps to follow and beautiful recipes, some need a little spicing up to my liking but thats because i like them really hot and spicy so for this just add more chillies, but for everyone out there that likes a bit of spice this is the book for you
