    Pad thai recipe is delicious and not that hard! Ditto Grapow Chicken. Some of the recipes in here are more esoteric but I really liked the simple ones so far. This book is fun and lavish like the Momofuku Cookbook, but a little more manageable in terms of ingredients and preparation. I checked this out from the library, but now I want to buy it.

    This is a great book for authentic Thai cuisine. It's not overly complicated but does tend to require some hard to find ingredients. I also found that the estimated time for the recipe is usually not very accurate (I guess if you cook Thai food all the time maybe but for a general home cook not so much). The pad thai is amazing, we have made it many times and would HIGHLY reccomend it!

    While the recipes are solid (they'll work, and they're largely written for Western-style kitchens), I don't know how practical or appealing they'll be for most home cooks. Some of the ingredients/flavors are a little odd (even for Thai food) and I find trying to recreate "food stall food" at home usually doesn't work out so well.

    Not for me, they lost me at blood soup....I got a few hot tips on some of the Thai favorites we already cook but overall it seemed like stuff you’d be better off finding on the streets of Thailand, or very authentic Thai restaurants in big cities.

    I likely won't make a damn thing in this book (other than maybe the Microwave Sticky Rice :) but the chef's stories are enjoyable, the food looks amazing and I love the photos of his staff and family and Thailand.

    Admittedly takes some shortcuts with "authenticity" to create approachable, practical recipes with delicious results. Very interesting read, everything I've cooked from here has been a success so far.

    i love cookbooks that are about loving food - going back to roots and finding new ways. The recipies in this book range from complex to simple, from things you would have easily in your kitchen to some more far flung ingredients- and all made with the idea of facilitating connection.
