Review: Thai Food Made Easy

Thai-Made-Easy-blog-tour2About the book:
Stop spending a fortune on takeout and bring the delicious flavors of Thai food into your own kitchen. With a tantalizing variety of curries, pad thai, and all your other favorites to try, this book takes the mystery out of Thai food preparation so you can enjoy those fresh and exotic flavors any day of the week.

About the author:
June V. Williamson was born in a little northeastern town of Udorn, Thailand. When she was 7 years old, her mother met, fell in love, and married an American Air Force officer. This was the beginning of her military life of living back and forth from America to Thailand being exposed to the native Thai life for 9 years. However, those years were deliciously profound. Thai food had been infused into her by Thai street vendors and her Thai mother. She is now back to living in another beautiful little town, but in Utah with her husband and 5 children.

From Reidhead Randomness:

This was my first venture into Thai cooking!  The recipes were quick, and pretty easy to prepare.  There were several ingredients that you find in an Asian store.  (A few of them I wasn't familiar with at all).  Each recipe has a shopping list  at the bottom!  Love it!!! I also liked that many of the recipes had 2 names...the authentic name, and the 'layman's terms' name.

The pictures....OH the pictures!  My goodness!  If you weren't hungry before looking through this, you will be rushing out to the store for ingredients to make them...PRONTO!  There is a picture for each recipe, which will entice you.....each saying "Pick me, Pick me!!" 

Inside, there is a helpful chart explaining the different types of curry.  WHO KNEW!!  Not me!  Followed by many different recipes for curry.  The Khao Pad Moo (Ham Fried Rice) was a big hit!  There were wonderful stir fry recipes...Pad Priew Wan (Sweet & sour chicken), and Asparagus Chicken being the favorites!

This is a fun vacation for your tastebuds!

I received a copy of this book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
