If you love to eat Thai food, but don't know how to cook it, this is the book for you! Kris Yenbamroong's strips down traditional recipes and then reinfuses them with maximum flavour and minimum effort. Whether it's a scorching hot crispy rice salad, lush coconut curry, or a wok-seared pad Thai, Kris takes the mystery out of Thai cooking by introducing Thai flavours in a way that will work for your everyday life.
Kris is the chef of Night + Market, and this is the story of his journey from the Thai-American restaurant classics he grew up eating at his family's restaurant, to the rural cooking of the Northern Thailand countryside. His love of grilled meats, fried chicken, tacos, sushi, wine and good living ultimately became his L.A. based Thai restaurant with a style all its own and an unrivalled reputation.
