Description: Siam Cuisine is a unique restaurant in Berkeley, California, which has been acclaimed since the early eighties for serving authentic Thai food rivaling that in Bangkok restaurants. Gathered here are more than 100 recipes for their superbly cooked dishes -- chicken simmered in red curry with coconut and bamboo shoots ... prawns and calamari with sweet basil and chilies ... coconut soup with pickled garlic and red preserved bean curd ... green, red, and yellow curry dishes served with gluten cakes. This book offers accurate measurements of raw ingredients and methods of cooking them so that the final products possess the characteristic taste and texture of the food served at Siam Cuisine. Americans have long been baffled at how to create the tastes and seasonings of authentic Thai seafood, meat, and vegetarian dishes. Now you can cook these artful culinary combinations yourself, simply and with easy to follow directions.
