The Food Lovers' Cookbook Collection
David Thompson deserves his place in the pantheon of great food writers and great chefs sitting alongside Elizabeth David, Julia Child and Jane Grigson.
The difference is that he has taken on a cuisine unfamiliar to many in the west then started the arduous task of codifying it and making it accessible to Westerners.
Our views on Thai food are clear - we believe that it is one of the two or three most complex and interesting cuisines on the planet.
Thompson's writings ensure that this complexity is communicated while giving hints to Western chefs and cooks on how to approximate the Thai flavours, textures and aromas in the western kitchen.
He is an author who deserves to be taken very seriously.
