Cookbook Review: Thailand, From the Source

Thailand From the Source (4 of 7)

Over the next several months I will be travelling the world in my cookbook adventures. So many great titles have been released that when I realized that the ones I leaned heavily towards were country specific I decided to let you, my audience decide where I would begin my journey.  An overwhelming number of people chose Thailand, which who can blame them; with deeply soulful, exotic flavours Thai food offers dishes for everyone.

Thailand, From the Source (Lonely Planet), ticks a lot of boxes in my list of criteria for cookbooks to make it onto my shelf and importantly to be used in my kitchen.  First the chapters are arranged per geographical area of the country as each point of the compass offers different textures, flavours and ingredients.

Each recipe has gorgeous photos and easy to follow instructions.  Some of them take a bit of time to prepare while others like this spicy pork and basil take mere minutes.

And probably my most favorite part of this vibrant book is the stories.  Each one of these authentic recipes are from local residents of Thailand and each person’s story is unfolds as you continue into the recipe. It’s a mystical journey through a beautiful country that happens to include amazing recipes.
