Delicious Thai Food to Facilitate Drinking and Fun-Having Amongst Friends
The debut cookbook from the Food & Wine Best New Chef behind the hit LA restaurant group, Night + Market, with 100 recipes for fun and edgy Thai cooking.
Growing up in his family’s groundbreaking LA restaurant Talesai, Kris Yenbamroong has Thai cooking in his blood. Since then, though, he's come back around on "inauthentic" cooking, realizing that who he is as a chef is wedded to who he is as a person: a postmodern American. In his debut book, Kris shares his techniques for the fiery Thai food his grandmother grew up on, as well as taking the flavor lessons and techniques from that food and transforming them into favorites like Thai fried chicken sandwiches and pastrami drunken noodles. Along the way, we see what it means to be an Asian American chef today.
