It's hard to imagine a more knowledgeable and inspiring guide to the vibrant world of Thai street food than internationally renowned chef and Thai food expert David Thompson. Join him on a whirlwind tour of the curry shops and stir-fry stalls of Thailand: a float on the canals of Bangkok, on the streets and in the markets – then try your hand at cooking the fast, fresh, and irresistible food that sustains a nation. With Earl Carter's photo essays of Thai street life and exquisite food photography, Thai Street Food so effectively captures the atmosphere of Thailand's streets and markets it's as if you were there.

About the Author

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 he 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.

David Thompson is now widely recognised as an authority on Thai food and culture. Through his award-winning books, Thai Food and Thai Street Food, and his acclaimed nahm restaurants in London (the first Thai restaurant to be awarded a Michelin star) and Bangkok (which made its debut on the San Pellegrino list of the World's 50 Best Restaurants in 2012), he has increased the awareness and appreciation of authentic Thai cooking worldwide. He lives in London and Bangkok.

    Comments about Thai Street Food:

    This is the book to read if you love Thai food and plan to eat your way through Thailand (on a budget or not). The author is also an engaging story teller and this book was obviously a labour of love.
