The Everything Thai Cookbook: From Pad Thai to Lemongrass Chicken Skewers--300 Tasty, Tempting Thai Dishes You Can Make at Home by Jennifer Malott Kotylo (Everything Series: Adams Media Corporation)  I love the layout of The Everything Thai Cookbook, with every recipe fittin g on one page, clean and uncluttered – almost as much as I love Thai food. Pad Thai, Cashew Chicken – this is Thai for the mainstream, the family kitchen.

Thai cuisine creates a harmonious blend between spicy hot and comparatively bland ingredients from age-old Eastern and relatively new Western foods. Featuring both outstanding traditional recipes and cutting-edge crowd-pleasers such as Spicy Fried Rice Sticks, Salmon Toast, Chicken Satay, and Thai Crab Cakes, The Everything Thai Cookbook guides you through preparing meals as good as you’d find in your favorite Thai restaurant.

The Everything Thai Cookbook is perfect for both vegetarians and meat-eaters, offering an eclectic range of spices, flavors, and aromas. Whether you want to prepare a meal for one—or an entire feast—The Everything Thai Cookbook will have you serving up tasty fare to tempt even the most critical food connoisseur.

Featuring mouthwatering recipes for:

  • Banana Fritters

  • Chicken-Vegetable Rice

  • Coconut Curried Chicken

  • Fresh Oranges in Rose Water

  • Pumpkin Rice Custard

  • Spicy Rice and Shrimp Salad

There are chapters on sauces, appetizers, soups, salads, desserts, drinks and teas as well as meat, chicken, seafood, vegetable, noodle and rice dishes. The last two chapters cover Thai-inspired cooking and exotic regional cuisines like Vietnamese Oxtail Soup and the appendix includes a glossary, menus, and sources of special ingredients.

The Everything Thai Cookbook strikes a perfect mid-note, giving all the essential information and explaining all the key ingredients, yet keeping it simple enough to make this a thoroughly useful and engaging cookbook that you can use at home.
