Description: The food of Thailand is a comprehensive introduction to one of the world's great cuisines. Thailand has an increasingly well-known and much-loved repertoire of dishes, some more familiar than others. Join our culinary journey from the street snacks found in Bangkok's markets to the seafood freshly cooked on the beaches of the Gulf of Thailand, and meet the locals, from the sweet-makers of Phetchaburi province to the rice-growing hill tribes of the northern region. Discover the myriad dishes that make up modern Thai cuisine: from traditional green, red and panaeng curries, eaten by every Thai, to salads like som tarn and laap, redolent with herbs and chillies, and coconut-based soups including the famous torn khaa kai.
Each recipe is photographed as it is made, and is accompanied by pictures of techniques, equipment and ingredients. Stunning photographs shot in Thailand help the reader to choose and identify produce, from vegetables and flavourings fresh from the market to street snacks, sweets and colourful and exotic fruits.
To partner the recipes, special pages explore the essence of Thai food and cooking techniques. Subjects include making fish sauce, preparing som tam, mixing and pounding curry pastes, and carving fruit. A glossary of food, cooking and equipment helps you source your ingredients and offers tips on substitutions.
