'Wise, witty, and wonderfully written, Baan sits alongside David Thompson's Thai Food and Andy Ricker's Pok Pok as one of the great English language works on regional Thai cookery.' - Tom Parker-Bowles
'Kay's true home is Thailand. Rarely have I met someone with such a love of a country, its people and their food. This book, so aptly named Baan, is the result of her journey through the Kingdom and many kitchens. It is home cooking, the true source of the best of Thai food. Kay recounts the charm, delicious fun and spirit of Thai kitchens in this book. I am captivated.' - David Thompson
'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. Some are familiar, some unusual, and some so regional they capture a distinct sliver of Thailand and all its unique character. Crucially, all of them are well within the capabilities of the competent and curious cook. Kay demystifies Thai food, providing clear and concise recipes and revealing the shortcuts, kitchen hacks and ingredient substitutions that make delicious Thai cookery achievable in an ordinary Western home.
Chapters include How To Cook Rice - so central to Thai food and so easy to get right, whether steamed jasmine rice or sticky rice, all secrets are revealed Snacks and Aharn Len; Yums, Laarps and Tums; Soups; Stir-fried and Deepfried; Curries, Stews and Braises; Grilled, Steamed and Baked; Relishes and Dipping Sauces; and Drinks and Desserts.
Baan guides the reader through the fragrant world of Thai cooking - dishes of profound and gracious subtlety - onto a culinary adventure all within the comfort of their own kitchen.
At noma - four times named the world's best restaurant - every dish includes some form of fermentation, whether it's a bright hit of vinegar, a deeply savory miso, an electrifying drop of garum, or the sweet intensity of black garlic. Fermentation is one of the foundations behind noma's extraordinary flavour profiles. Now Rene Redzepi, chef and co-owner of noma, and David Zilber, the chef who runs the restaurant's acclaimed fermentation lab, share never-before-revealed techniques to creating noma's extensive pantry of ferments. And they do so with a book conceived specifically to share their knowledge and techniques with home cooks. With more than 750 full-colour photographs, most of them step-by-step how-tos, and with every recipe approachably written and meticulously tested, Foundations of Flavor: The Noma Guide to Fermentation takes readers far beyond the typical kimchi and sauerkraut to include koji, kombuchas, shoyus, misos, lacto-ferments, vinegars, garums, and black fruits and vegetables. And - perhaps even more important - it shows how to use these game-changing pantry ingredients in 100 original recipes. Fermentation is already building as the most significant new direction in food (and health). With Foundations of Flavor: The Noma Guide to Fermentation, it's about to be taken to a whole new level.
