Through these eighty recipes, Pepper teaches you how to make all her hits.

Pepper shares stories about her life, too, such as how she used to sell sweet-savory kanom krok coconut-and-corn pancakes to commuters when she was ten years old in Thailand (now she makes them with her granddaughter, Luna, as a treat) and how, once she moved to the United States, she would cobble together tastes of home with ingredients she could find in her new homeland, like turning shredded cabbage and carrots into a mock-papaya salad. Influenced by Thailand, California, and everywhere in between, Pepper’s mouthwatering recipes and sharp sense of humor will satisfy anyone craving a taste of something sensational, whether that’s a peek into America’s most-talked- about family’s kitchen or a rich and spicy spoonful of Massaman Beef Curry.

    I don't do Instagram, nor have I been a follower of any of Chrissy Teigan's publications, so came to this cookbook fresh, so to speak. I was very impressed by the easy recipes, most relying on ingredients easily found in most supermarkets, and techniques accessible to anyone who has done even a little Asian cooking. This is a very "accessible" cookbook, and all of the recipes I have tried have been delicious. The index is particularly useful.

My fave recipe--Brussels Sprouts Pad Thai, and there are easily a dozen runners-up, including hot basil eggplant (ok, the rest of the family wasn't as in love with this one as I, but I've never encountered an eggplant recipe I didn't enjoy)! Probably more than a dozen had I cooked more recipes that I found appealing.

    I’m known for buying cookbooks that are left to gather dust, but my husband and I have reached for this one at least 1x / week since I bought it. We’ve especially enjoyed the Bow-Thai See Ew, the lemongrass chicken and the larb burgers. (Who am I kidding? We’ve enjoyed a lot.) Don’t be afraid to make substitutions! Even though I keep an above average number of Asian sauces and pastes on hand, we’ve had to get creative with some of the recipes.

    Oooh yes this is a good one. I love the different categories and variety of authentic recipes! I feel like it's obvious to compare her cookbook to her daughter's - I think Chrissy has a lot of good fusion riffs on classic recipes and Pepper keeps them closer to the real deal. Chrissy also mixes in a ton more "American" food options while Pepper's cookbook is almost exclusively Thai. I love it - cannot wait to make some of these. If you don't keep things like fish sauce and oyster sauce around li Oooh yes this is a good one. I love the different categories and variety of authentic recipes!

    I've always loved Pepper, her IG page is a delight. And she of course features heavily in Chrissy's cookbooks. I love her anecdotes about cooking Thai food when there were no Asian markets nearby, of cooking wings for the bar they owned in WA state, of growing up in Isaan and learning to cook as a little girl. And I want to eat everything in here. I've been to Thailand, I've eaten at many Thai restaurants, but Thailand is huge, and every province has their own cuisine and I want to eat ALL OF IT.

    I love Thai cuisine! What this book impressed me is that this is not just a cookbook for your favorite Thai dishes but also a memoir of a woman, who immigrated to the States which was also her very first time to board on an airplane when she was in her early twenties, her journey to explore her hometown dishes in a new country and her fond memories about preparing her children and supporting her husband's pub with these dishes decades ago. It's really sweet to read her stories beside the recipes I love Thai cuisine!

    Gorgeous pictures, easy to understand recipes, all in all it is a very professional and beautiful cookbook. I found the ingredients to be difficult to obtain and the recipes too time consuming. for me. I'll continue to get my Thai food at a restaurant.

    Very nice cookbook. Easy to read, nice photos, and helpful ingredient lists including substitutions. I'm a big fan of the entire family, I make the miso fettuccini dish with bok choy from Cravings often. I'm looking forward to trying the coconut pancakes here :) Very nice cookbook.

    Easy, vibrant, delicious recipes - I think I will add this to my home library. The recipes were easy to follow and make you believe you can make thai food! The sauce recipes in particular look fabulous and loved the pantry section.

    Maybe being Australian I found this book very foreign. We have plenty of Thai food and this book have a lot of fusion Thai food. And reading the recipes there’s a lot of flavors going on in one dish. This one not really my taste

    Really enjoyed this. I love Thai food and Pepper makes everything sound not just delicious, but attainable for the home cook. Genuinely feels like she's sharing her own homestyle Thai faves with us. Really enjoyed this. I love Thai food and Pepper makes everything sound not just delicious, but attainable for the home cook.
