This book was out-of-print for years and I am very happy to see it reissued -- so I can give a copy to my son away in college!
This is where the French-Thai connection started as far as I can tell. The book is a marvel. The illustrations and comments in the margins are as valuable as the recipes and their text.
I have made just about every dish in this book and I have never been disappointed and neither have my guests.
My son grew up on the Thai Popcorn; I believe that the duck and chicken recipes are beyond reproach; the lentil salad is to die for (better have a heck of an extensive spice collection for that one....) and EVERYBODY loves the Carrot Cake.
A fine, fine example of American creativity in the culinary arts.

There are so many recipes that would sell this book on their own merit, but as a collection it is truly indespensible. When you buy this be sure to try: the Salmon,Spinch and Scallop Pate, Mushroom Barley Soup, Vegetarian Chili (amazing!), Curried Chicken Salad, Smoked Chicken Crepes with Horseradish Sauce, Sauteed Green Beans with Hazelnut Crumbs, Broccoli with garlic butter and, as mentioned by so many others the OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP WALNUT COOKIES!
There isn't a bad Thai-inspired recipe in this book either.
The perfect wedding shower or housewarming gift.
I have since used this cookbook into my adult years and would say its must have.
I must admit that reading the reviews makes me wince just that tiny bit -- all those terribly fashionable foods of the time. Reminds me of the year my dad added Belgian endive to my mom's shopping list every week just to annoy. You know, I could live without the raspberry puree brulee spinach asparagus crepe hazelnut big-puffy-sleeve dance again. But so what? I'm looking forward to cooking from this book, and I bet I'll wake up some pleasant memories in doing it.
In only two weeks I've recreated several of the recipes and have been inspired to push all thoughts of retiring from kitchen duty out of my head. The delightful tale of "how" Frog originally developed and their masterful recipes has inspired me to such an extent, I may never leave the walls of by kitchen again. The simple, elegant purity of always wanting to plate the "best" is laced, like a delightful heap of spun sugar on every page!
