Thai food has been trendy for several years, and it doesn’t seem that it’s letting up. For good reason, of course – Thai food is delicious, exotic, and often healthy. Sallie Morris, a noted cookbook author who specializes in Southeast Asian cooking, has outdone herself in making authentic Thai recipes simple and easy to make at home in her excellent cookbook, Easy Thai Cookbook: The Step-by-step Guide to Deliciously Easy Thai Food at Home. There is something for everyone here: vegetarian, including vegan, curries, salads, appetizers, stir-fries, classics, and desserts. Morris includes a chapter on Basics, which introduce Thai ingredients, addresses equipment and cooking methods, and gives basic recipes for cooking several kinds of rice and preparing basic, classic Thai sauces and curry pastes.

Morris has simplified the preparation of her dishes, so that most can be made in 30 minutes or less – perfect for those who are short on time, but like to eat well. Prawn and Pineapple Curry is already a new favorite, as well as Prawn Satay. Stir-fry Chilli Pork was not only quick and easy, it was delicious and has been requested more than once. Stuffed Omelettes, which Morris claims can be purchased at stands in Thailand, were quick and made a perfect light lunch. Other delicious recipes are Sweet and Sour Chicken (stir fry), and Thanying Salad. There are enough enticing recipes to make dozens of perfect menus that can be made in a short period of time. There is also a section with set menus using the excellent recipes.

The desserts are light and refreshing: Mango Sorbet, Glutinous Rice with Mango Slices, and Coconut Milk Ice Cream turned out perfectly.

For those who like Thai food, this is an excellent cookbook to have, and makes it quick and easy to prepared favorite Thai dishes. Highly recommended, it makes a perfect addition to a cookbook collection.
