Overview

Poise your fork for some serious gluttonizing, with this gorgeous, photo-filled book as your guide

Nowhere, but nowhere, gets a foodie's pulse racing like Bangkok; the Thai capital dazzles with its vibrant cuisine. And darnit if the downright deliciousness of it all doesn't slap you around the choppers from the moment you arrive. Eating opps lurk down every alley, waterway and high street, making gorging non-stop the name of the Bangkok game. For the food lover, Bangkok is Nirvana.   The product of Chinese, Muslim, Central Thai regional and royal influences, the city's frenzied kitchens have spawned distinctive dishes. Pad Thai, tom yum goong, mee grob, kao mok gai and satay –  these are just the tip of the veritable iceberg. Beside these, there are oodles of noodle dishes, tons of different curries, endless ways with seafood and compelling sweets, street food snacks, braises, salads, barbecues, soups and stir fries. Fragrant, spicy, sweet and salty; the flavours are a revelation. To make sense of them you need a culinary companion and happily, we've made one. Poise your fork for some serious gluttonising, with Bangkok In 12 Dishes as your guide.   Bangkok In 12 Dishes is structured around iconic dishes you should try at least once while in town.
