Katie Chin (300 Best Rice Cooker Recipes), sometimes referred to as the "Asian Rachael Ray," puts forth a winning collection of accessible Thai dishes. Once readers have stocked their pantries with a handful of staples like Thai basil, assorted curry pastes, palm sugar, fish sauce, and lemongrass, they'll find they're able to whip up any number of favorites such as larb-a spicy salad with minced pork, braised chicken in Thai yellow curry and the classic Pad Thai with a minimum of fuss. Those interested in broadening their horizons may find inventive riffs like lemongrass chicken wings, winter squash curry, roast duck salad and Thai crab cakes worth a try. Tips on prepping unique ingredients like lemongrass along with substitutions for hard-to-find ingredients (dark brown sugar is an able stand-in for palm sugar), and step-by-step instructions paired with photos for techniques help ensure readers get the desired result. A fine introduction to one of the world's most popular cuisines. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
