101 Thai Dishes You Need to Cook Before You Die: The Essential Recipes, Techniques and Ingredients of Thailand

We rated this book:


If you love Thai food, you’re sure to enjoy this new and very accessible cookbook that will help you recreate many of your favorite dishes at home. Although the sheer number of unfamiliar ingredients might at first seem overwhelming, they are essential to getting that delicious, signature Thai flavor into your dishes. It is worth making a trip to a well-stocked Asian market to find things like galanga and lemon grass; other ingredients can easily be found online.

One of the simplest recipes to make was Thai BBQ Chicken, which only required marinating chicken in a coconut curry marinade before baking; it took only a few minutes of hands-on time, although, like many dishes, you’ll want to plan ahead for marinating time (but that can happen overnight!). We also enjoyed the Chicken Satay, which was much easier than I had anticipated, although I found this dish extremely salty and would adjust that in the future. The Thai peanut sauce was a beautiful accompaniment, however.

The recipes are easy to follow and quite straightforward, even when they have a longer list of ingredients. You will appreciate how the author takes care to make these dishes easy to accomplish for the home cook.
