Overview

This classic work was one of the first books to bring authentic Thai cuisine to a Western audience. First published in the 1980s, it set the standard to which all subsequent books followed. It first takes the reader through a brief history of Thailand before introducing the 10 essential ingredients and the most common techniques. Clear, approachable recipes are split into regions—from the more basic fare of the countryside to special-occasion dishes and the more elaborate cooking of Bangkok. Here is the genuine food of the Thai people, presented with passion and authority. Vatcharin Bhumichitr, a widely respected chef and cookbook author, is also a well-known restaurateur; he recently opened Tamarind Thai in Miami.
