Simple Thai Food: Classic Recipes from the Thai Home Kitchen Review

Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog "She Simmers." A Bangkok native (and current Chicago resident), Leela Punyaratabandhu knows first-hand that even Thai cooks take shortcuts. With "Simple Thai Food," Leela presents recipes from her beloved Thailand, all tested and tweaked to ensure that even the busiest American cook can prepare them at home. With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, "Simple Thai Food" is a complete primer for any home cook who wants to give Thai cooking a try. Recipes range from pleasantly familiar classics like Pork Satay with Peanut Sauce, Pad Thai with Shrimp, and Tom Yum Soup, to the exotic--including soon-to-be-favorites like Son-in-Law Eggs and Fried Fish with Green Mango Salad.
