About this item

A beautiful, eye-opening guide to the culture and cuisine of Thailand's south, featuring the region's quintessential recipes: spicy noodles, coconut curries, and seafood dishes. Austin Bush has spent decades traveling across Thailand, collecting recipes, observing cooking techniques, taking photographs, and recording stories. With his documentarian's eye, he captures the rich culinary traditions of the country's southern region, making this the first cookbook in English to focus on the cuisine. The Food of Southern Thailand continues Austin's ambitious project of illuminating Thailand's foodways. Shared here are bold, spicy flavors of chile, turmeric, and black pepper that link countryside and island. Gathered, too, are cosmopolitan dishes from the cities that blend ingredients such as coconut milk and fish sauce.
