The Introduction informs the cook that 'The foods of Thailand consist of many combinations and blends of different flavors, herbs, spices and peppers. It is a fiery cuisine which has become popular due to many Thai restaurants offering dishes that are appreciated by the adventurous and sophisticated palates of so many people of today.'

I don't know that my palate is adventurous or sophisticated, but I do enjoy Thai cooking. This cookbook presents, with marvelous photographs, the foods of Thailand in quick, easy and healthy recipes. Chef Panurai Poladitmontri, the owner and chef of the Lemon Grass Grill in Seattle, was born and raised in Thailand where his family owns several restaurants. Judy Lew is a cooking instructor and cookbook author. These two have enough experience between them to successfully create and produce the mouthwatering dishes presented in Quick & Easy Thai Cuisine.

Take for instance Thai Egg Omelet. Okay, you think, anyone can make an omelet. But this one! If you could see me kissing my fingertips, you might understand. Pork, shrimp, garlic, fish sauces, and a multitude of veggies, a unique folding procedure and voila! Bon Appetit! Or try Pineapple Curry with Shrimp served with Jasmine Rice. Not to be missed. Thai Noodles with delectable additions would be a real winner. I love salmon but Wrapped in Banana Leaves! Sounds good to me. And the Pepper Steak looks glorious.

Don't just look and drool. Try these wonderful recipes and decide which is your favorite. Move out of the box and enjoy something new.
