David Thompson's 'Thai Food' vs 'Thai Street Food'

pantruque | Jan 6, 2012 06:13 PM

I'm a big fan of several Thai cookery blogs that I discovered thanks to this board -- SheSimmers, in particular -- but I'd like to have a book on hand, too. After a few trips to the local shops and libraries, I've decided one of David Thompson's would be best.

I was able to look through 'Thai Street Food' (which is why I want to go with him). However, I wasn't able to find a copy of 'Thai Food' to compare it with.

Is there anyone on this board who has both books, or has had enough access to get a sense of the differences between the two? I like a big fat reference section, for a start. More tofu recipes and fewer recipes calling for coconut milk would be another plus.

It seems he wrote another couple of books in the 90s as well, but I can't find much on them.

I'd be very grateful for any advice. Judging by the threads I've browsed through, you're a pretty knowledgeable bunch!

Thank you.
