I would like to buy a good Thai cookbook. I'm thinking of hosting a Thai dinner in a couple of months and this is one cuisine I have no cookbooks for. I absolutely love Thai food and would like to start cooking at home. Since I live in L.A., I should have easy access to needed ingredients.
What are your favorite Thai cookbooks? I would like something rather comprehensive so I could try to make all of my favorites. And I know Thai food can traditionally be made to be VERY spicy...I like spice, but am not looking for a book that really focuses on the firey side of Thai.
The one book I saw on Amazon that looks interesting is"Thailand: The Beautiful Cookbook"...pricey, but seems well received.
Thanks for the suggestions! :-)
