... with 40 real Thai recipes ready to make a great Thai cuisine at home.
The author follows a very good rule - what are Thai people doing when it comes to prepare their meals at home?
Then he answers the question if or not Thai food is healthy, and how to make a Curry paste at home instead of buying a commercial product with additives, maybe?
And he explains when the traditional pestle and mortar are better than a food processor. And gives advice about other kitchen usentils.
There is great information why some Thai dishes taste as strong as they do, how to make them taste like that and from simple broths and soups to advanced Chicken Massaman there is everything a real Thai cuisine lover needs to know.
From basic preparations like Shrimp Tom Yum and Pad Thai, over salads as the Green Mango Salad and the famous Papaya Spicy Salad, Stir Fried Noodles lead to BBQ specials like Grilled Shrimps, Pork Satay, and many others to follow.
The author is very accurate with the original ingredients but also flexible about changing some products with others, to make the meals more diversified...
At the end You will also find a conversion guide for liquid, weight and time measures and an internet link to a list of the proper Thai food ingredients.
Every recipe has fotos of its ingredients and step-by-step preparation and I did not find any repulsive in them.
If someone cannot see the raw parts of his menue before being cooked - then it's better to eat always in restaurants and avoid looking at cookbooks at all ...:)
A very interesting guide for the true lovers of the Thai Cuisine!
