Author: Mark Padoongpatt
With a uniquely balanced combination of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, Thai food burst onto Los Angeles’s and America’s culinary scene in the 1980s. Flavors of Empire examines the rise of Thai food and the way it shaped the racial and ethnic contours of Thai American identity and community. Full of vivid oral histories and new archival material, this book explores the factors that made foodways central to the Thai American experience. Starting with American Cold War intervention in Thailand, Mark Padoongpatt traces how informal empire allowed U.S. citizens to discover Thai cuisine abroad and introduce it inside the United States. When Thais arrived in Los Angeles, they reinvented and repackaged Thai food in various ways to meet the rising popularity of the cuisine in urban and suburban spaces. Padoongpatt opens up the history and politics of Thai food for the first time, all while demonstrating how race emerges in seemingly mundane and unexpected places.

|Chicken and Rice: Fresh and Easy Southeast Asian Recipes From a London Kitchen
Lowest new price: $21.30
Lowest used price: $22.61
List price: $34.95
Author: Shu Han Lee
Shu Han Lee moved to London from Singapore as a student. Homesick and hungry, she started teaching herself to cook the food she'd grown up with—Singaporean and Malaysian dishes, with a strong Chinese influence from her Hokkien Chinese mother. These recipes, from her mother's Sesame Oil Chicken to Ox Cheek and Venison Rendang, are ones you will want to make time and time again. There are perfect midweek suppers rustled up in less time than it takes to order a takeaway, and healthier and better tasting at that: Fennel and Minced Pork Stir Fry, Fried Hor Fun Noodles with Kale and Beansprouts, or Tom Yum Soup with Mussels. For weekends, there are more adventurous projects: learn how to make your own steamed buns, egg noodles, or BBQ Sambal Lemon Sole—a whole fish barbequed on banana leaves. Although these are Southeast Asian recipes, Shu's seasonal approach to the very best produce is reflected throughout this book: from Brussels Sprouts with Smashed Garlic and Oyster Sauce to No-churn Rhubarb and Condensed Milk Ice Cream. There are also recipes that Shu has picked up on her travels throughout Southeast Asia, such as Vietnamese Caramel Pork Ribs, Thai Baked Glass Noodles with Prawns, and Black Pepper and Burmese Chickpea Tofu with Fish Sauce, Lime, and Honey Dressing.

* Winner of the Best Asian Cuisine from Books Outside Asia at the 2016 Gourmand Cookbook Awards! *
In the small village of Kravan in rural Thailand, the food is like no other in the world. The diet is finely attuned to the land, taking advantage of what is local and plentiful. Made primarily of fresh, foraged vegetables infused with the dominant Khmer flavours of bird chilies, garlic, shallots and fish sauce, the cuisine is completely distinct from the dishes typically associated with Thailand.
Best-selling food writer and photographer Jeffrey Alford has been completely immersed in this unique culinary tradition for the last four years while living in this region with his partner Pea, a talented forager, gardener and cook. With stories of village and family life surrounding each dish, Alford provides insight into the ecological and cultural traditions out of which the cuisine of the region has developed. He also describes how the food is meant to be eaten: as an elaborate dish in a wedding ceremony, a well-deserved break from the rice harvest, or just a comforting snack at the end of a hard day.
