Love Thai food? Almost everybody does, and you can learn to cook it at home with The Thai Cookbook: More than 80 delicious recipes, regional styles, and flavors, an excellent publication by the editors of Chartwell Books.

Thai food has enjoyed a surge of popularity in recent years in the US, and with good reason: the food is fabulous. While most of us don’t have the time and can’t afford to go out often, this book includes Thai dishes than can be made at home. None of the dishes are particularly difficult to make, and almost any cook, beginner to advanced, can easily make them picture perfect.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions. Many of the ingredients called for are available at any good Asian grocery, and with the popularity of Thai cooking, some are even available at mainstream grocers. Whether it takes a special trip or not, the recipes in this book are so good, you’ll agree it’s worth the trip.

This cookbook includes beautiful, professional photographs of most of the dishes, as well as people from Thailand and the country, making it a wonderful book to peruse in a corner while deciding which of the mouthwatering dishes to make.

All told, this cookbook is worth having on the shelf. The recipes include traditional Thai standbys, as well as several not-so-well-known, but worth trying recipes.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
