Kin Thai, John Chantarasak
Kin Thai translates as 'Eat Thai' and is a collection of 80 delicious recipes that shine a light on lesser known Thai cuisine as well as more popular Thai food classics. Chapters are structured by type of dish, from snacks and relishes to curries, stir-fries and salads, so you can easily find your favourites--from Roast Duck and Lychee Red Curry (gaeng daeng bpet) and Langoustine and Rhubarb Hot and Sour Soup (dtom yum goong) to Red Fire Greens with Yellow Soybean Sauce (pak kheo fai daeng) and Assorted Flavour One-bite Royal Snack (miang kham). As well as using ingredients native to Thailand, John explores the origins of the western ingredients, explaining their place in Thai cuisine, and how the competent home cook can use them to achieve Asian flavours.
