-- Alice Waters
"Bruce Cost is one of the greatest cooks I've ever known . . . He truly demystifies many previously forbidding and odd ingredients."

The Best of Vietnamese and Thai Cooking by Mai Pham. I have searched high and low for a book with authentic Vietnamese and Thai recipes, and Mai Pham's book is the best I've found! Her recipes are easy to follow and mouth watering! I also love this book because of the touching stories she puts at the beginning of each chapter. That added a very personal touch and insight into the way the food should be prepared and eaten. Overall, a perfect book for lovers of Asian food! comments by  Bjorn Andersson

The Book of Thai Cooking by Hilaire Walden, David Gill. I feel lucky to have stumbled upon this book. Wow! There are a ton of exquisite color photos that show ingredients, preparation, and presentation ideas for every wonderful recipe. It was difficult to believe that this book was so reasonbly priced for what you get. If you are interested in learning Thai cooking and don't know what lemongrass looks like, the difference between a lime and a kaffir lime, or what galangal is, you need this book! comments by  Bjorn Andersson

The Elegant Taste of Thailand : Cha Am Cuisine by Pinyo Srisawat, Cha'Am Cuisine, Sisamon Khongphan, Roger Williams
Going to Cha-am is a religious experience for Thai food lovers in the Bay Area. This is a great opportunity to try making dishes at home--and you even get great results. Two words of warning, however: there is not a huge amount of variety in the food presented here (you will still need to go to the restaurant to get many favorites and many Thai standards), and while the glossary was a great idea, the descriptions are confusing and not all of the Thai ingredients that mystify are explained in the glossary.

It Rains Fishes : Legends, Traditions and the Joys of Thai Cooking by Kasma Loha-Unchit (Paperback - July 1995)
From Book News, Inc. , February 1, 1996 The recipes are only part of the fun in this compendium of information about the land, people, and culinary traditions of Thailand. Ingredients are thoroughly described (good news: coconut milk is not necessarily a no-no for cholesterol watchers; chili peppers are great for you). Recipes include lots of notes and variations. Colorful watercolor illustrations enhance the feeling of travel and discovery. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

A feast for the eyes, the mind, and the palate, August 28, 2000
Reviewer: D. Bruce from Syracuse, NY United States
First and foremost the book presents a series of recipes, easy to follow and in every instance a delight to prepare and to serve. The preparation of the ingredients, their traditional uses, and helpful information about potential combinations provide the reader with a banquet of information about the preparation of food in the traditional Thai style. Moreover, the book contains helpful suggestions on preparation techniques, for locating and purchasing ingredients, and for ultimate presentation of the dish. Loha-Unchit clearly strives to prepare the reader for the Thai cooking experience: providing basic instruction for those just beginning and important details to more experienced Thai cooks.

The book also is visually beautiful. Numerous line drawings and beautiful images (apparently watercolors) provide the reader with beautiful images ranging from market scenes in Bangkok to illustrations of people working in the countryside. I found myself going back to the pictures and imagining myself observing the scenes they depicted.

Finally, this book is a feast for the mind. Loha-unchit provides the reader with a history of the foods, their origins, and their place within the Thai cuisine. Loha-unchit guides us through a process that enables us to obtain and employ ingredients to produce authentic and traditional Thai cuisine with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of results. For example, although the book contains recipes for making your own curries from scratch it also provides suggestions for commercially available curries that provide the flavors closest to Thai home-made.

This is not a cookbook for those who think you can label a dish Thai by adding a few peanuts and a bit of lemon grass. It is a book that provides the reader with a taste of the sensibility of Thai cuisine and Thai culture, a journey for both the mind and the palate.

Experienced cooks will benefit from the insights Loha-unchit offers; inexperienced cooks will find their skills grow through use of the book. All will delight in the flavors, both visual and gustatory, that "It rains fishes" provides.

Real Thai : The Best of Thailand's Regional Cooking by Nancie McDermott (Paperback - May 1992)

An excellent introduction to Thai cooking, May 1, 2000
This was the first Thai cookbook I purchased when I first discovered how easy Thai was to make at home about 4 years ago. The recipes prove that you can get restaurant quality food in your home kitchen. My husband and I usually use this book two times or more a week and have never been disappointed. He doesn't like to cook that much so we are especially pleased with the simplicity of most recipes.

Our favorites include our restaurant standards Pad Thai, Chicken Curry and Swimming Rama. We have also found some great new dishes through this book such as the Garlic Shrimp, and the Burmese-Style Pork Curry with Fresh Ginger.

Cooking out of this book has let us explore wonderful new dishes. Also, by all means add more chilis. The hotter the better.
