Description

A celebration of the thrill and spirit of Thai drinking food, Andy Ricker's follow-up to Pok Pok brings the same level of authority, with a more laid-back approach. Just as America has salted peanuts, wings, and nachos, Thailand has its own roster of craveable snacks- spicy, salty, and/or sour, they are perfect accompaniments for a few drinks and the company of good friends. Accessible and detailed recipes like phat khii mao (drunkard's stir-fry), kai thawt (Thai-style fried chicken), and thua thawt samun phrai (fried peanuts with kaffir lime, garlic, and chiles) provide all the tools to create the food and the experience of Whiskey Soda Lounge at home.

Reviews

"In Thailand, you drink while eating and eat while drinking," writes Andy Ricker. Either way, sounds good to me! This fascinating cookbook is a celebration of Thai cooking called "Drinking Food" - think snacks/one meal dishes. But it's not just a cookbook. The recipes are enhanced by gorgeous photos of people preparing and serving the recipes, as well as providing insight into Thai food and culture. Irresistible. Paul, The Book Grocer
