I have the wonderful 'Thai Food' cookbook, though value it for the great background knowledge it contains. However I haven't been able to cook many recipes. A lot of the recipes are above me (massaman curry took a whole afternoon to cook!) Also i'm allergic to Shell fish so that rules of a good chunk of his recopies.
I do want to buy his Street Food cookbook, based on the presumption that street food is somewhat easier? Any recommendations? Do a lot of the recipes rely heavily on prawns etc? For most thinks I am happy to sub tofu pieces or chicken etc. But I find a lot of the recipes in the original cookbook really do rely on prawns etc.
Would you say its worth buying??
