Classic Thai! Apr 14, 2008
This cookbook is most appropriately titled: the recipes ARE quick and easy.Great Thai food is said to have an etheric, uncontainable quality...and I find that is true. My partner and I love to cook together, and this book has served as a sure starting point on which we build. The spices are easily and cheaply available in local Asian stores and usually much cheaper than your local supermarket. Here in San Diego we shop at 'Ranch 99'. One suggestion for readers; Mazola oil is a great choice for the deep frying entrees. I substitute coconut oil for the other recipes.If you haven't tried cooking with it, you might like it :) Altogether a really fun, easy and inspiring book! If you're going to get ONE Thai cookbook, THIS is the one! Enjoy!
Great Recipies Mar 15, 2008
This is a good starter cookbook for those interested in trying the cuisine of southeast asia. Great Pictures. Juicy. I've tried three or four and they were splendid. My wife and I are now eating Thai or Vietnamese about twice a week. You do need to collect eastern cooking ingredients that are not common to western cooking, but it's worth it. I'm still trying to find spring roll wrappers. My kitchen has been globalized. RJ
Quick and easy thai cuisine Jan 28, 2008
I loved this book. If you want to try cooking thai food. This is a great book to start. You can find most ingredients at your local asian stores. The instruction is very easy to follow and the content of this book is pretty authentic.
Love this book Jan 7, 2008
This is a very straight forward and easy to understand book since it is mainly based on pictures. Now it is easier to buy what is needed at Asian markets, and follow their simple directions.
The only drawback is that this is a small book with not that many recipes, but I really do like the SELECTION of recipes in the book. They are the more useful ones and tend to be more of the things that I like to order at a Thai restaurant rather than something very strange or with lots of ingredients that I will never make.
Overall, this is a good book to have if you want a simple to follow Thai cookbook and I am not disappointed. It has most every recipe I really hoped for.

Found this book so easy with ingredients easily sourced in Australia that I have bought another copy for my 14 year old grandson.
