"This book, as far as I'm concerned, is an argument ender. When Andy says ‘make som tam lao like this,' it's like Jacques Pépin telling you how to make an omelette. The matter is settled. Previously, I would never have even attempted to prepare most of these dishes in my home. I had always felt that Thai food was best left to the experts. But this book has given me hope and confidence."
"You'd be hard-pressed to find better Thai food than what Andy Ricker is serving at Pok Pok. And now, with his cookbook, we finally get to see the people, places, and experiences that were the inspiration for it all."
-David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku
"In this groundbreaking masterwork, Andy Ricker weaves together superb recipes, enlightening cultural narratives, meaningful personal essays, and an incomparable insight into the essence of Thai foodways. But perhaps this book's greatest achievement is the honest, uncompromising way it brings real Thai cookery right into American readers' homes. The bar has been set for ethnic cookbooks going forward."
