Pressestimmen

Simple Thai Food is just what folks need: a simple, easy-to-follow cookbook on a delicious cuisine (and one of my favorites!) that most people aren’t used to making at home. With clear, friendly instructions and valuable tips and techniques, Leela unlocks the flavors and seasonings of real Thai cooking—spicy salads, coconut-rich soups, blazing bowls of curry, and the fiery, flavorful condiments that go alongside. Thanks to Leela, I’m excited to create these authentic Thai dishes in my own kitchen!” 
—David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen 
 
“In this compendium of favorite Thai dishes, Leela has managed to make the recipes accessible and straightforward for a home cook, and to keep them very true to what a modern Thai cook (in Thailand as well as in the West) would recognize as ‘authentic.’ She does offer substitutions when ingredients are more difficult to find, but they never skew far from what a Thai mom would use in her own kitchen. Leela even sneaks in a few dishes that you might not find in your local Thai restaurant, but will probably become your favorites!” 
—Andy Ricker, chef/owner of the Pok Pok restaurants and author of Pok Pok 
 
“Leela has crafted an authoritative, opinionated, and thoroughly down-to-earth collection of traditional Thai recipes, written especially for cooks who weren’t lucky enough to be born in Thailand. All the basics are here, beautifully organized, from curry paste to coconut milk and beyond.” 
—David Tanis, author of One Good Dish
 
Simple Thai Food is a beautiful snapshot of Leela’s effort to stay connected to her Bangkok roots through food, and a wonderfully practical guide for those of us who want to create authentic Thai flavors at home.” 
—James Oseland, editor-in-chief of Saveur and author of Cradle of Flavor
 
“Leela re-creates her beloved taste memories, and then invites us in—offering tools, inspiration, and fresh context in equal measure. You will want these recipes for so many reasons—the craft, joy, deliciousness, backstory—and you will want (and come close to experiencing) Leela herself at your table, imparting her fine intelligence and warmth.” 
—Mollie Katzen, author of The Moosewood Cookbook and The Heart of the Plate

Kurzbeschreibung

Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog She Simmers.

Who can say no to a delicious plate of Pad Thai with Shrimp; a fresh, tangy Green Papaya Salad; golden Fried Spring Rolls; or a rich, savory Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish? Thai food is not only one of the most vibrant, wonderfully varied cuisines in the world, it also happens to be one of the tastiest, and a favorite among American eaters.

The good news is, with the right ingredients and a few basic tools and techniques, authentic Thai food is easily within reach of home cooks. Take it from Leela Punyaratabandhu, a Bangkok native and author of the popular Thai cooking blog She Simmers. In her much-anticipated debut cookbook, Leela shares her favorite recipes for classic Thai fare, including beloved family recipes, popular street food specialties, and iconic dishes from Thai restaurant menus around the world.

All of Leela’s recipes have been tested and tweaked to ensure that even the busiest cook can prepare them at home. With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, Simple Thai Food is a complete primer for anyone who wants to give Thai cooking a try. By the end of the book, you’ll be whipping up tom yam soup and duck red curry that will put your local takeout joint to shame. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll discover an exciting new world of Thai flavors and dishes—including Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam, Leaf-Wrapped Salad Bites, and Crispy Wings with Three-Flavored Sauce—that will open your eyes to all the wonderful possibilities that real Thai cooking has to offer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get ready for some serious Thai cooking! 13. Mai 2014
Von I Do The Speed Limit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you like her blog, you will love this cookbook! But be aware, "simple" does not mean quick. And, "simple" does not necessarily mean suitable for week night cooking. And, "simple" does not mean few ingredients, either.

I gave serious thought to my star-rating for this book. (Well, I always give my review ratings serious thought, but this one seemed to be a tougher decision.) Four stars just does not do justice to this book, but it's not a perfect five-star book either....I hope you all don't mind that I've decided on a 4.5 rating, and on Amazon's scale, I've rounded it up. I don't consider it a cop-out: No. I have trouble with the word "Simple" in the title, but there is SO MUCH worthy in this book that it's better than a four-star.

Having some knowledge of Thai foods and having looked at Leela's blog, I should have known that "Simple" Thai Food was a misnomer--at least for me. While I have access to Thai ingredients by way of a home garden and a weekly trip up to the big city, I don't always have access to beautiful fresh fish. And I did not grow up in house where wok cooking and deep frying were everyday occurrences.

I guess I'm saying that "unfamiliar" is rarely "simple", and what is "familiar" is always "simpler.

I have no trouble following her instructions or finding the ingredients, but the recipes are a learning experience for me, therefore, they take more time than I am willing to spend for a week night meal.

Ms. Punyaratabandhu strives to be authentic, and that is very admirable. Some people will purchase this book because they can trust the authenticity of its recipes, and because the dishes remind them of their heritage.

Personally, I was looking for some simple recipes--for Thai food, simply prepared--simply because I like the flavors in Thai food!

I enjoyed some of the soups, especially the spicy vegetable with shrimp and the hot and sour chicken soup with turmeric. I was enthralled by many of the curries, but will have to try them when the weather turns cool again. I loved the grilled pork neck, and wished for, but did not find, grilled fish recipes. I'll probably get the most use from the noodle recipes.

What I found surprising--and oh, so, useful, were the "basic" recipes and preparations: I can make my own sriracha and sweet chile sauces now. And there are several other condiments that I used to buy at the oriental market, that I can make myself on a lazy, soulful day in the kitchen.

The layout is easy to read and easy to follow. The index is adequate. There are some other helpful information included to make you a bit more comfortable with Thai ingredients and cooking. There are some nice photos, but not one for every recipe.

*I received a temporary download of this book from the publishers. That is why I am able to post a review on the day this book is released to the public. I have spent several months working with the recipes in this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply perfect 28. Juni 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Let me start by saying that I have lived in Thailand for the past two years. Some other reviewers have mentioned the title of the book perhaps being something of a misnomer. I can understand that sentiment, but I disagree. This cookbook is is all about simple Thai food. Not American-simple, "ready in 20 minutes using ingredients always in your pantry," but simple as in truly, simply, the food that is served in Thai homes. Not trendy restaurant Thai, not Thai fusion, not Thai-influenced: simply, Thai.

The recipes are authentic, the instructions detailed, the photography beautiful. Leela gives acceptable substitutes for potentially hard-to-find ingredients when they exist, and when a substitute just won't do she makes that clear as well. She also includes an introduction for most recipes which includes where she got the recipe or the traditional background of that food. In short, this is the perfect cookbook for someone who simply wants to learn about and cook real Thai food.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best cookbook I've ever used 12. Juni 2014
Von Rachael Herron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Seriously, not only is the writing GREAT and the explanation clear, the recipes are to die for. I kind of don't want to eat anything but her food from here on out. She understands how flavors marry each other in a way I've never seen replicated in a cookbook. You need this. I love this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Authentic and doable Thai 23. Mai 2014
Von K. L. Gallaher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have followed the Author through her blog Shesimmmers (dot) com and through her She Simmers Facebook page and this book is true to them. The recipes are doable - they have a reasonable number of ingredients - which most Americans can get, and the results are true Thai - not Thai-American restaurant Thai.
I have made three meals from this book so far - the last Rice Noodles with Chicken and Chinese Broccoli. The family ate every bite. Yum,
Some recipes will be new to most, others familiar - but more authentic. The book give a lot of good tips and also ingredient substitutes where that is possible.
If you want to try Thai cooking this is a great choice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Approachable Thai Dishes for the Home Cook 21. Juli 2014
Von Andrew'sMom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a fan of Thai food - actually I am a fan of all internationally inspired food. I just received a copy of Simple Thai Food by Leela Punyaratabandhu and after reviewing it believe it is a must have for someone wanting to experiment with Thai flavors.

A few of the recipes I have marked to make - Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish (my husband is not a fan of seafood so this will be something along the lines of shrimp toast I can make and he can still enjoy); Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam (the book includes a recipe for chile jam - but I have a wonderful jar from my friend Marc that I can use in this recipe); the photos for Chicken Cashew Stir-Fry look better than any cashew chicken I have ever made; Pad Thai (of course!); and one of my favorite Thai dishes - Spicy Basil Chicken and Fried Eggs on Rice. There are many seafood, rice and dessert dishes included as well as relishes, sauces and paste recipes.

I have many more complex and detailed Thai books -- but this book is approachable while giving complex flavors and professional looking dishes.
