Simple Thai Food: Classic Recipes from the Thai Home Kitchen

Leela Punyaratabandhu. Ten Speed, $24.99 (236p) ISBN 978-1-60774-523-5
Author of the blog She Simmers and a contributor to CNN and the food blog Serious Eats, Punyaratabandhu brings the “authentic, regional flavors” of Thailand to the everyday, money-conscious home-cook. Split into sections based on the portion of the meal the dishes are a part of, e.g., “Noshes and Nibbles,” “One plate meals,” and “Sweets,” the reader can easily find the exact type of food they desire. With Thai classics like Pad Thai with Shrimp, or Fish Cakes with Cucumber Peanut Relish, and more adventurous dishes like Pineapple with Sweet Peanut-Chicken Topping (Galloping Horses) and Rice Congee with Pork Dumpling and Eggs, there is enough here for both the novice to Thai flavors and the experienced eater. All in all, this is a solid, simple introduction to Thai food. (May)
