About the Book
This book contains recipes for both traditional, and original, Thai cuisine. They focus on the many styles of food you will find everywhere in Thailand: both in the Thai home and in many of the restaurants dotted throughout the country.
It is a collaboration between Thai restaurant owner, Assara Worrachatwittaya, and architectural photographer, Nanette Reid.
Both travel to many countries outside Thailand, and discovered that when visiting many Thai restaurants, the food didn't taste the same, mainly due to it being adapted for the particular country's palate.
As a result Assara decided to find a way to cook and keep the traditional taste, regardless of the ingredients used. The resulting recipes are easy to cook and traditional in taste and style.
"Authentic Thai Cooking" will guide you through the process of cooking traditional-style Thai food in a quick and easy manner and teach you to use the ingredients available at your local supermarket, to easily achieve that traditional Thai taste.
