Thai Street Food

Thai Street Food Review

Thai Street Food transports readers straight into the bustling heart of Thailand’s colorful street stalls and markets--from the predawn rounds of monks fanning out along the aisles to the made-to-order stalls ablaze in neon and jammed with hungry locals after dark. Featuring nearly 100 authentic dishes plus lavish photography accompanying every recipe, this stunning cookbook is the definitive guide to Thailand’s culinary street culture. The recipes, such as Steamed Fish with Chilli and Lime Sauce, Pork Satay, Roast Duck and Egg Noodle Soup, and Sweet Banana Roti illuminate the beguiling world of food so integral to the Thais.
 
Scholar and chef David Thompson lives with a singular passion for Thailand’s customs, culture, and people. Although he claims “It’s all about the food,” this ambitious work shares his insights into the rhythms and nuances of Thai daily life along with a fascinating history of its richly diverse street cuisine. This cookbook is a tempting, inspiring, and authoritative account of Thai street food, the vibrant culinary mosaic rich with community.

    Thompson's "Thai Food" is probably my most heavily referenced cookbook in our kitchen. It has more notes and tabs than any other volume on the shelf. I know I originally wrote a somewhat bewildered re...

    I initially assumed this book was simply Chapter 13 (of his magnus opus) as Coffee-Table Book. But that's not correct. TSF is a terrific book on its own, full of insights regarding Thais and their per...
