Thai cooking blends Chinese, Indian and Arabic influences into a unique cuisine. This is the first comprehensive and authentic book on Thai cooking and it brings the delicious secrets of Thai cuisine within the grasp of every cook.
A typical Thai dinner consists of an assortment of curry dishes, soups, salads, vegetables and sauces served simultaneously around a central bowl of plain boiled rice. Recipes range from Quail Egg Flowers, Prawns Caught in a Net and Bamboo Shoot and Pork Soup, to Sweet and Sour Beef and Whole Fried Fish with Ginger Sauce. The final chapters are dedicated to desserts and sweets-- everything from Thai Fried Bananas to Mangoes and Sticky Rice.
