In the beginning there is a small investment to be made in ingredients the average American does not have in their pantry. There is a fish sauce,(which is used in practically every asian recipe and in this book), soy sauce, and sri rachaa which is an Asian hot sauce and various curries and a couple other spices. But, once this book hits your life they will be as common and familiar to you as ketchup or mustard. Excellent pictures for those, like myself, who love pictures. If you are considering this book, go ahead without further reservation.
Edit: I have to edit my review and say that we recently made the Chiang Mai noodles (the dish featured on the cover) and it was SO wondeful and easy. My boyfriend has been begging me to make it again all week. Another hit from this book!
Well this book is one that delivers on all counts. The recipes are easy to follow and taste just like the real thing. (after spending alot of time in Thailand its great to be able to recreate the tastes). Every recipe I've tried has been a total success. About the only error is the Spicy cashew salad with chillies, cilantro and lime. The recipe is suspiciously missing the cilantro however a little imagination can quickly correct that.
Nancie McDermott also captures the spirit of fun with the recipes and makes cooking them a pleasure, which is so important for Thai food.
Another great feature of this book is the appendix which advises of the basics you need to re-create Thai food. The list is not huge (nor probably exhaustive), but a great delight is that with this list of basics you can make nearly all the recipes. I took the book and the basics to the remote seaside recently and was thrilled that all we needed to purchase was fish/prawns/chicken/greens etc and then just pick a recipe!
I love this book so much it sits out all the time for quick reference and is recommended to friends. I currently only recommend two books to friends this and Asian Tapas !Asian Tapas: Small Bites, Big Flavors.
Overall a total delight of a cookbook, fun to read, fun to cook with and a total pleasure to eat from
The recipes are easy to understand and comprised of ingredients that you should not have to travel off of the beaten path to find. The author gives the reader a good primer on Thai cooking and delves into some of the specialized ingredients and tools that a beginner might need.
A lot of Thai cooking can be quiet spicy. Fine by me...not so fine by the misses...on a few recipes, I have had to back down the heat. Even with different palates...the end result was still fabulous. I looked at a number of different books before settling on Quick& Easy Thai. So far, this appears to be one of the best.
