Baan: Recipes and sto­ries from my Thai home

Kay Plun­kett-Hogge

Product Details

Baan’ means the hearth, the home, the com­mu­ni­ty, the place where you come from and this new book by Kay Plun­kett-Hogge emu­lates just that feel­ing from Thai cui­sine. Born and raised in Bangkok, Kay spoke Thai before she spoke Eng­lish and has spent more than half her life in Thai­land. Baan is a true homage to her child­hood, to the deli­cious recipes that she was raised on and a cui­sine and coun­try that she loves.

Baan fea­tures over 120 recipes that Kay has col­lect­ed from all over Thai­land from friends, acquain­tances and street-stall hold­ers, all gath­ered over around 30 years of trav­el, and all of them tried and test­ed back in Lon­don. Kay demys­ti­fies Thai food, pro­vid­ing clear and con­cise recipes and reveal­ing the short­cuts, kitchen hacks and ingre­di­ent sub­sti­tu­tions that make deli­cious and authen­tic Thai cook­ery achiev­able in an ordi­nary West­ern home.

Learn how to cook rice — so cen­tral to Thai food and so easy to get right, whether steamed jas­mine rice or sticky white rice, all secrets are revealed. Chap­ters include: Snacks and Aharn Len; Yums, Laarps and Tums; Soups; Stir-fried and Deep-fried; Cur­ries, Stews and Brais­es; Grilled, Steamed and Baked; Rel­ish­es, Dip­ping Sauces and Pick­les; Eggs and Drinks and Desserts.
