Malulee Pinsuvana spent her time in DC and around big US air bases - her husband was for years the Thai air force attaché to the US. She was a plenty social lady and if you know anything about the DC social scene, you know that dinner parties are the underpinning of making real political things happen, maybe the most important lobbying effort short of lining politicos' pockets. Mdme. Pinsuvana had enough national pride to recognize that you don't get authentic anything from caterers and that it shows up just that way - tasty maybe, phony certainly. She also came to understand the dilemma facing hundreds of Thai diplomats, military and business sorts needing to do exactly as she was, or at minimum wanting to find a way to make home happen here.
Her three volumes are written simultaneously in Thai and English with ingredient lists, recipe detail, and commentary. I suppose if your learning to actually use the Thai language, this may be one of the best places to start, but the real magic is somewhat beyond language translation. She uncompromisingly translates between ingredients you could only take a stab at finding to those on most store shelves and tells you just exactly the effects on the dish varying from authentic and how to tweak for that. There are details for several hundred dishes and you're about to go way beyond pad Thai, satay, and tom ka.
Or you can go back to you Sunset book and your epicure magazines and enjoy fancy pablum.
