Overview

A common feature of the cuisines of Thailand and Asia is an emphasis on food that is fresh, beautifully presented and made to be shared. The secrets of authentic Thai and Asian food and cooking are accessible to all, with ingredients that were once difficult to obtain now available in many supermarkets.

This comprehensive volume is not just a guide to the delectable cooking of Thailand but to the classic cuisines of Asia, from China through Korea and Japan, down through Burma, Thailand and Vietnam to the islands of Malaysia, Borneo, Indonesia and the Philippines. Each country has its own style of cooking, but they share a similar approach to food. This book is a magnificently photographed guide to the ingredients and cooking of Asia, filled with enticing, traditional recipes.

The first part of the book is a rich visual catalog containing essential information about every type of Thai and Asian ingredient. As well as daily staples such as rice and noodles, there are pancakes and wrappers, dumplings, vegetables, mushrooms, seaweed, fruit, nuts and seeds, bean curd, fish and shellfish, meat, poultry, eggs, herbs, spices and aromatics, sauces and pastes, sambals, coconut milk, beer, wine and spirits. All the foods are illustrated with color photographs and are accompanied by guidelines about how to choose the best ingredients, their aroma and flavor, culinary uses, storage, preparation and cooking techniques.

The second part of the book consists of over 300 traditional Thai and Asian recipes, with easy-to-follow, illustrated step-by-step instructions throughout. Here you will find snacks and appetizers, soups, poultry dishes, meat dishes, fish and shellfish dishes, vegetable main dishes, rice dishes, noodle dishes, side dishes and accompaniments, salads and desserts. Tempting recipes include Chicken Satay with Groundnut, Mongolian Firepot, Thai Spring Rolls, Cantonese Fried Noodles, Nasi Goreng, Sashimi, and Coconut Cream Diamonds. The book concludes with nutritional information for all of the recipes featured, and an invaluable guide to shopping for Thai and Asian ingredients.

For the creative home cook who loves combining the exotic colors and flavors of Asia, this comprehensive and fully illustrated book is an essential companion.

    The best!

    I have dozens of cookbooks, and many Asian cookbooks. This book is the one I turn to again and again. It is the best Asian cookbook I have ever read. Great source of information, cooking technique, well photographed. Very well researched.
