This cookbook is amazing because it really takes out the intimidation out of cooking Thai food. I love it because:
* EASY: Chef Danhi breaks down each recipe into less than 5 (!) steps. This makes it so easy to whip up a dish during the week for a great meal. In addition, in the beginning of the book, Danhi lays out a well stocked Thai pantry and tells you the essentials you need to have. He also gives step-by-step instructions on how to make a curry base (and then you can improvise on it), how to stir-fry (critical for Thai cooking), and how to use the various spices and ingredients (e.g. lemongrass, tamarind, galangal) - this is very useful.
* TASTY: The recipes Chef Danhi includes in this book are pure genius because their simplicity does not compromise the taste at all. Each recipe packs in the flavor, and they are all incredibly tasty. The Sweet and Spicy Pork Ribs were incredible. The Tamarind Noodles with Shrimp were delicious! I could go on and on...but basically each recipe was easy to make and so tasty!
*AUTHENTIC: In addition to being just plain yummy and delicious, Danhi's recipes maintain the authentic flavor profiles of Thai cooking and makes everyone feel like an expert. Even me!
Finally, the pictures are gorgeous and informative. The book is a wonderful, thoughtfully curated walk through Thai cooking and I would highly recommend it for anyone that wants to learn Thai cooking and incorporate the cuisine into a daily cooking rotation.
Plenty of people already given long, wonderful reviews, so I'll make it simple: from all the books I had checked out from my library before deciding which one to buy, this is it, hands down.
I was glad to learn more about those special aromatics; kaffir leaves and lemongrass....I had to go shop to see and smell these things. I can honestly say that I do not see Thai cooking as challenging anymore. I enjoyed the complex flavor combinations I would love to add ground peanuts to everything. I have always loved the coconut soup and now became familiar with galang and its use. I enjoyed reading the book, the colorful pictures, and the great recipes which I have been cooking. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. I also purchased the Southeast Asian cook book. Loved the sticky rice recipe which also used the pandan leaves.
