130 simple Thai dishes from the king of Oriental cooking
This is the one and only cookbook of its kind you'll ever need. Ken Hom has worked his customary magic to bring Thai food - one of today's most popular cuisines - within everyone's reach. The 130 wonderfully exotic recipes are clear and simple to follow and many are illustrated with exquisite colour photographs that conjure up the exciting flavours of Thai food. There are classic dishes such as a traditional Fragrant Prawn and Lemongrass Soup and Green Curry Beef as well as other more unusual delicacies such as Wok-roasted Clams with Chilli - all capturing the distinctive taste of Thailand and all bearing the trademark stamp of Ken Hom's unique brand of east-meets-west cookery. A truly inspirational cookbook from the undisputed king of Oriental cooking.
