About This Book

Thai cuisine is famed for the complexity and delicacy of its flavours, largely the result of the herbs and spices used. Surprisingly, only thirty or so are needed. It is the ingenious combination of these ingredients that makes Thai food so distinctive. At the same time that these herbs and spices add flavor and fragrance, they bring natural curative properties that have been recognized for their efficacy in traditional practice through the ages. Each herb or spice in this book is described in terms of its botanical characteristics, its culinary and medicinal uses (and other notable applications), and how it should be handled and stored to best preserve its qualities. In addition, a selection of classic recipes shows how the various ingredients are brought together harmoniously in authentic Thai fare.
