Modern Thai Food is a sumptuous collection of Thai-inspired recipes for the modern kitchen. Martin Boetz, from the acclaimed Longrain restaurants, has translated 100 of his favorite dishes for cooks to recreate at home. If you enjoy cooking and eating, you will revel in the flavors that can be found in Grilled Scallops with Peanut Nahm Jim; Grilled Cuttlefish & Pomelo Salad; Light Red Curry of Beef; and the signature Longrain Egg Net. Also included are Martin's lighter, fresher interpretations of Thai favorites such as hot and sour soup, red and green curries, fish cakes and salads—all without compromising on authenticity or taste.
From the bar, Sam Christie offers recipes for the cocktails and 'stick drinks' that have made the Longrain bar a much-loved meeting place. Most of the ingredients used in Modern Thai Food are readily found in supermarkets, fresh food markets and good Asian produce stores. A comprehensive illustrated glossary will help cooks identify ingredients, and Martin's clear instructions will help guide cooks through the recipes.
Illustrated throughout with gorgeous full color photographs by Jeremy Simons, Modern Thai Food will inspire all who want to cook—and eat—their Thai and Asian-inspired favorites at home.
