Description: The pungent taste of lemon grass, the creamy richness of coconut milk, the crispness of stir-fried vegetables and the fiery punch of chili have all contributed to the phenomenal success of Thai cooking throughout the world. Subtly combining the flavors of China and India with a dash of its own inimitable style, Thai food is an exotic concoction of rapidly cooked fresh ingredients, herbs and spices. Thai cooking will appeal to vegetarians looking for new and flavorful dishes, as well as curious cooks interested in trying an exotic cuisine with notable health benefits.
Following his best-selling cookbook, The Taste of Thailand, Vatcharin Bhumichitr has created a varied selection of vegetarian dishes that are authentically Thai. The 130 recipes range from the seductively delicate Crispy Rice with Coconut and Mushroom Sauce to the more robust and tangy Stir-fried Chili with Water Chestnuts. There are soups, starters and one-dish meals, and a selection of more elaborate delicacies, including curries, main dishes and desserts to tantalize and captivate the palate.
Along with advice on equipment, ingredients and how to plan a full Thai meal, the author also creates an evocative picture of Thailand as he explores the religious and cultural importance of vegetarian food in his homeland. With atmospheric location photography and images of succulent food, the book is both a travel companion and culinary guide.
