Just the cover has my mouth watering. The recipes make my taste buds go into overload. The book is so magnificently laid out with tons of recipes and presented so well. I, as a beginner in the kitchen, feel that I can master the art of whatever delectable dish I'm attempting at the moment. I raise a toast to the author and look forward to many more successes!

I was interested in trying to make Thai food at home. I looked through several books and settled on this one. Once I started cooking from this book I knew that I had discovered a new cuisine for my husband and me. I have since purchase many thai cookbooks (some recommended) but when I get ready to cook something Thai, this is the one I reach for. The recipes are easy to follow, and very orderly. I truly love this book.

I have made ten (or so) recipes from this book - everything comes out perfectly and is delicious. Ingredients are not too hard to find and the recipes are clear and precise. Yum!
