Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 - October 16, 2015

I'm linking up with Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings and Freda's Voice for Page 56. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Pick the closest book on your book stack and join the fun.

The Beginning:

"When I started my website, in 2008 I had no idea where it would lead. At the time my only goal was to document the best, most tried and true Thai recipes from my mother's cookbook collection. She had passed away a few weeks earlier and cooking, photographing and sharing the reck[es was my way of honoring her memory.

"O, Cilantro, you enhance the inter value of anything you adorn, says Phak Chi Roi Na (Garnished with Cilantro), a megahit song from the later 1980s by Asanne and Wasan Chotikul, two of Thailand's most famous rockers.

From Simple Thai Food, Classic Recipes from the Thai Home Kitchen by Leela Punyaratabandhu. I love Thai dishes for several reasons. One, they taste great. Two, many do not use soy. Three when they call for flour it is rice or corn starch not wheat. As I am soy and gluten sensitive and love foods that taste good these fill the bill. While I have to search for some of the ingredients most are easy to find, easy to cook and very tasty to eat.
