Every recipe is an eye-popping wow of a winner! I love Thai cuisine and had no idea how to make it. All the ingredients are nicely described in the opening chapter "Thai Cooking: Hot and Lively." Here in the Washington, DC area, I easily found them all except lime leaves. You do want a wok, I think, though a frying pan is possible.
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!

This is one of the first Thai cookbooks I purchased. Since then I have purchased several others, but I keep coming back to this one as my starting point for creating an Asian menu. As most other reviewers have stated, the directions are clear and the ingredient list is manageable. Young offers some helpful tips along the way to make it easier.
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.

We bought this book with a gift certificate about four years ago. Since then, rice stick, fish sauce and black fungus have become staples in our pantry. My 5-year-old, fussy as children can be, counts several dishes from this book his absolute favourites - he gets more excited over noodles than even pizza!
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.

Thai food lovers will dance around the kitchen while preparing these recipes,and those who dine at the table will widen their eyes in amazement that you, yes you, could have prepared such an incredibly authentic meal in such a remarkably short time. I have turned my 10 year old onto Thai, and prepared a dinner for 8 in less than an hour. This cookbook makes me a hero everytime. Low fat, high flavor, my friends are all asking me to gift them with this book for Christmas. I will do so willingly...Nothing would make me happier than to have them all cooking Simply Thai for me.

While you need access to an oriental foods store and need to do a bit of mind-reading or patron-accosting (at least at our's - no one knows the English terms for th hard-to-find stuff) to track down the ingredients - the food is a) easy to cook b) really tasty c) healthy. We tend to uh, overeat when I cook Thai and no matter if I double or triple the recipe we always eat it (My wife, three boys and I). Hmmm.

Highly recommend it but suggest you plan on taking your time. Depending on the recipe it can take a couple of hours for prep + cooking time. I put on my 'Cooking' iTunes playlist and my wife and I share the prep work and drink a glass of wine. I'll almost always rope my friends into helping when I cook for them. It's fun!

I love Thai cooking and this cookbook is very authentic. The recipe is easy to make and very yummy. A lot of the recipes taste very similar to the authentic thai restaurant I always go to. You can never go wrong with this book and it's the only thai cookbook I would use to make thai food.

I used to go to one of Wandee Young's restaurants in Toronto all the time with my friends, so when I discovered that she had published a cookbook (including recipes from her restaurant), I was thrilled. Ever since I have bought this book I have prepared delicious meal after meal. My favorite dish is the Thai Spicy Noodles (with Pork). The preparation of this food is just as pleasurable as the consumption. As you cook, the wonderful smells of all the ingredients blending together will send shivers of delight down your spine. After eating Thai cuisine, my big complaint is the blandness of North American food. Thai cuisine is much healthier, just as easy to prepare, and bursting with flavor. Do yourself a favor and order this book now.
