"A guide to bold, authentic Thai cooking from Andy Ricker, the chef and owner of the wildly popular and widely lauded Pok Pok restaurants. After decades spent traveling throughout Thailand, Andy Ricker wanted to bring the country's famed street food stateside. In 2005 he opened Pok Pok, so named for the sound a pestle makes when it strikes a clay mortar, in an old shack in a residential neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Ricker's traditional take on Thai food soon drew the notice of the New York Times and Gourmet magazine, establishing him as a culinary star. Now, with his first cookbook, Ricker tackles head-on the myths that keep people from making Thai food at home: that it's too spicy for the American palate or too difficult to source ingredients. Fifty knockout recipes for simple and delicious Thai dishes range from Grilled Pork Collar with Spicy Dipping Sauce and Iced Greens to Andy's now-famous Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings. Including a primer in Thai techniques and flavor profiles, with tips for modifying local produce to mimic Thai flavors, Pok Pok makes authentic Thai food accessible to any home cook."--… (more)

As much hype as this one got, I expected it to be less ego and more cooking. ( )

Thai food can be pretty intimidating to try to cook at home for many of us. Chef Andy Rickter, write's this book to simplify and give is confidence to step out of the box and develop great Thai food at home. I have read books on cooking Thai food before but nothing has been as complete or helpful as this book before. It earned a place on my top shelf.
There are more than recipes included. There is a great deal of knowledge shared on techniques and finding your ingredients. Many online suppliers are listed to make it even easier. The pictures are mouth watering beautiful and will have you committing yourself to cooking every dish.
There is nothing mysterious about this cuisine after you finish this book. You really can cook up these delouse tasty exotic dishes at home. ( )
