Notes about this book

  • mjes on May 26, 2017

    This is a book my son brought home from Hawaii while a teenager. He then used Evil jungle prince with chicken and Sting beans with fresh ginger to impress the girls. Twenty years later this is still a go-to cookbook for a few favorites. We've gone from the original to the revised edition.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Evil jungle prince with chicken

    • rmardel on November 19, 2020

      This is the first Thai dish I ever cooked (in the first Thai cookbook I bought) and we are still enjoying it thirty-some-odd years later.

      This is one of the first recipes that my son learned to cook as a teenager. He found it very good for impressing the girls. The chile-lemongrass-kaffir lime-coconut milk provides a real Thai flavor without requiring long hours searching for ingredients. And the recipe requires only minimal knife skills making it a suitable starting point.

  • String beans with fresh ginger

    • mjes on May 26, 2017

      This is our family's standard side dish for Evil jungle prince with chicken. The ginger is sufficient to give it a distinct flavor profile while the coconunt-lemon grass-chiles tie it in with a Thai flavor profile.
