    The Banh Mi Handbook opens a new realm of flavor for cooks who are tired of the same old sandwiches.

Banh mi are the epitome of delicious street food, and their popularity has skyrocketed in the US in recent years. Respected food writer Andrea Nguyen's simple recipes for proteins, condiments, pickles, and more are a great introduction for those looking to venture into Vietnamese cuisine but who are intimidated by complicated recipes.

    Publication date: 01/11/2013

    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.

    Nahm in Bangkok Thailand #28 Worlds Best Restaurants 2017
    Publication Date: March 2010
    Renowned chef David Thompson first went to Thailand by mistake: a holiday plan had to be changed at the last minute and he ended up in Bangkok, where we was seduced by the people, their culture and cuisine. Since that fateful trip more than 25 years ago, Thailand has become his second home.

    Working alongside venerable cooks who traced their skills back to the Thai royal palaces, he began to document the traditional recipes and culinary techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation – before they were eroded, altered and modernised beyond all recognition. The result is Thai Food, the most comprehensive account of this ancient and exotic cuisine ever published in English.

    David Thompson writes with passion and conviction about a unique style of cooking that he believes to be one of the world's greatest cuisines. Complemented by Earl Carter's superb photography, Thai Food captures all aspects of this diverse culinary culture.

    Publication Date: September 2017
    Thai Food Made Easy takes you on a culinary adventure, building your store of essential Thai ingredients and making your own curry pastes and marinades. From there, on to classic Thai staples such as Pad Thai Fried Noodles, Thai Stir Fry Beef and Coconut Fish Curry - authentic dishes that are the go-to recipes for Thai food fanatics who love delicious, healthy food that is easy to cook and impressive to serve. The myth of Thai cooking is that its exotic secrets are hard to master, out of reach for the everyday cook. We instead settle for cheap takeaway which is usually disappointing. Cooking really good authentic Thai food is actually relatively simple. There is a bit of prep to do but the cooking process is not that hard. What is vital is to get a balance of taste, so hot, sweet, salt and sour are in balance. Let Tom Kime show you how.

    As a chef and food consultant Tom brings a fresh eye and experienced world view to his recipes. His contemporary method of balancing taste and flavour is quite unique, resulting in vibrant three-dimensional food that excites the palate with every mouthful. Tom cut his catering teeth in some of the most famous restaurants in London and Sydney. He has travelled to 42 countries to sample, discover and understand how to cook the world's best street food. He worked at Le Pont de la Tour in London and then with Rick Stein at The Seafood restaurant in Cornwall. Tom worked at the River Caf alongside Jamie Oliver (he cooked the food at Jamie's wedding) and at Darley St Thai with David Thompson and Cicada with Peter Doyle in Sydney. Tom is the Group Executive Chef of Goodtime hospitality at East Village Sydney and at the West village in Petersham, Sydney.
