    Thai "Ahan Farang" Cook Book/Website

    My missus is discovering she enjoys cooking western food (and eating!)..... does anyone out there know of a Thai cook book or website on basic western dishes your own lady uses to sharpen her "tam ahan Farang" skills? Any info?
    Cheers.

    Totally agree with AO. My wife learned all the basics from "The Joy of Cooking", a timeless classic. Then went to chef school some years later. Unless you're saying it must be in Thai language....if so, no clue.

    Davis are you sure you dont have the books mixed up. This one would be good for cooking


    I think the joy book is more along these lines.

    Mine went to a local college and did a proper diploma in cooking along with hygiene cert. She couldn't cook for toffee when I met her... lived on mama like most students; but she now cooks most things to decent restaurant standard - certainly her Thai food is better than anything I've ever paid for, and I'm not the only one to think that. So I'd forget books, and send her down to the local college for a proper course with a proper chef - you'll never look back!

    Agree, but I'd do both, especially if she can read in a language for Western cookbooks. AO: Joy of Cooking - in print since 1936. A great cookbook - but no pictures. I have both my Mom's tattered original, plus the 75th anniversary edition.

    If you pop down to any of shopping mall, you will usually find a book sale going on and they have loads of Western cookbooks in Thai - bread making, Italian cooking, steaks, baking,.

    I even saw one with that horrible British cuisine in it - black puddin', brawn, jellied eels and crap.....

    If they do not have a book sale, most Thai bookstores have them as well.

    This was Mrs Borey's introduction to western cooking. It is in both English and Thai. It's 40 years old. May be a newer version available somewhere.

    You need a copy of Farang Food by Gill Bater, recipes explained and translated into Thai. The book is printed with each page split into Thai and English used to be 450 baht.
