Back in the kitchen, the recipes are organized by main ingredient (with an index of English and Thai names), and side bars describe the dishes and their preparation in brief. The steps in each recipe are well described and easy to follow. After a few recipes, I started to find the steps similar, even predictable. Some steps can be done in different orders to make kitchen cleanup easier.
It really is simple. Now I feel comfortable substituting this or that vegetable or meat. The authors sometimes offer such tips. This book taught me to cook in the Thai style! Thank you!
Some of the humor sprinkled throughout the book is an unexpected surprise. I love the spicy chili sauce recipe where the last step is "call the fire department".
If I had one quibble with this book, it would be that more photographs of the completed recipes would be helpful. Even so it is not a major issue.
All in all a good investment if you want to learn how to cook Thai food. And if you are like me, living in an area that is devoid of neighborhood Thai restaurants, it is a necessity for those of us who need our Thai "fix" on a regular basis.
The dishes are delicious, easy to prepare and fun to make. As well, they are impressive served to company and make exotic pot-luck contributions, sure to get rave reviews. And tofu never tasted so great! Definitely worth adding to your collection if you love flavourful food.
