Description: Real Thai is the book Thai-food-lovers have been waiting for. The first book to demystify the lesser-known aspects of this popular, flavorful, and healthy food, Real Thai offers a clear, straightforward approach to foods many Westerners have only tasted in restaurants.
Organized geographically by region, over 100 tempting, easy-to-follow recipes explore not only familiar dishes such as Chicken-Coconut Soup, but lesser-known dishes such as Sticky Rice with Mangoes. In addition to a glossary of ingredients, a list of shopping sources, and suggested menus, Real Thai also features advice on basic utensils and techniques. This is the definitive guide, for novice and expert alike, to the diverse flavors of a regional Asian cuisine that is rapidly becoming an international favorite.
A well-known expert on Thai food, Nancie McDermott lived in Thailand for three years. Now a resident of Southern California, she has written numerous newspaper and magazine articles on Thai cooking, and teaches courses on the subject at cooking schools around the country.
