Night + Market - Delicious Thai Food to Facilitate Drinking and Fun-Having Amongst Friends

Author(s): Kris Yenbamroong

Thai

Growing up in his family's groundbreaking LA restaurant Talesai, Kris Yenbamroong has Thai cooking in his blood. Since then, though, he's come back around on "inauthentic" cooking, realizing that who he is as a chef is wedded to who he is as a person- a postmodern American. In his debut book, Kris shares his techniques for the fiery Thai food his grandmother grew up on, as well as taking the flavor lessons and techniques from that food and transforming them into favorites like Thai fried chicken sandwiches and pastrami drunken noodles. Along the way, we see what it means to be an Asian American chef today.

Product Information

"What Kris is doing is nothing short of revolutionary in the Thai food game. You see, just calling Kris a Thai chef would be doing a disservice to him and to other young chefs who are shaping the future of Asian American food." - Andy Ricker"Every time I'm in L.A., I have to eat a meal at Night + Market. It's one of my favorite spots anywhere. I love Thai food but know little about cooking it, and I'm too embarrassed to ask! So this book makes me insanely happy."--David Chang "Forget the blurbs - buy this book and start having tasty Thai bites at home! Full disclosure: I have not read this book and am being compensated in khao soi for endorsing it."--Aziz Ansari "Finally, from the brain, heart and kitchen of Kris Yenbamroong, comes Night + Market, a guide to cooking his genius, flavor exploding cuisine at home."--Gwyneth Paltrow "I didn't know that cookbooks could do all of this: be honest and eye-opening, inspiring to both chefs and diners, teach, make you laugh, and make you want to cook. Honestly, I haven't cooked from a cookbook in a long time, but I cooked from Night + Market the first day I had it. Tom Khar Soup. I couldn't resist. It sucked me in and I haven't stopped thinking about it since."--Danny Bowien "Night + Market restaurant is the culinary equivalent of going to the coolest warehouse art party knowing the crowd will be hip, and the garage band will rock, but assuming the art might be so-so, only to discover that the cinderblock walls are adorned with masterpieces from Warhol, Basquiat, Rauschenberg, Kahlo, etc...Your mouth will thank you for introducing it to Night + Market."--Shepard Fairey "It's always been a wine place to me, which happens to have the additional bonus of searing, amazing Northern Thai food. I like that I can get my chili endorphin rush along with some cloudy macerated white wine."--James Murphy "Kris's Night + Market is doing for Thai food what I did with pizza and other classics at Spago three and a half decades ago: reimagining them for adventurous modern tastes and creating the kind of food that's meant to be enjoyed with wine and other drinks and shared happily with your friends. I'm excited to see how easy, accessible, and delicious Kris's recipes are, and how entertainingly, smartly, and honestly he writes about them, and I can't wait to cook his food in my own kitchen for my family and friends."--Wolfgang Puck "If you love Thai food but have always been too intimidated to try cooking it, thisbook will be your new best friend. All the recipes are delicious, bold, and will impress both you and your friends."--Buzzfeed "Sure, Thai food is great with booze, but you don't have to drink to appreciate its nuance. "Night + Market," from LA chef Kris Yenbamroong, offers recipes for "grandma" dishes such as pad see ew and fish curry noodles, reimagined dishes (grilled catfish tamales, Isaan salmon ceviche), snacks and party dishes (roasted green chile dip, chicken wings, uni garlic fried rice), and more. He also argues we should be drinking more wine with Thai food."--The Boston Globe "A fun and deeply personal read"--The San Francisco Chronicle "LA chef Kris Yenbamroong's first cookbook serves as an enticing gateway drug into the world of Thai cookery, and readers need not have patronized his restaurant by the same name to be thoroughly dazzled by the recipes contained within. A straight-up fun read."--EaterFood52's Fall Cookbook Must-Haves The Kitchn's The New Cookbooks We're Most Excited About This Fall "Every time I'm in L.A., I have to eat a meal at Night + Market. It's one of my favorite spots anywhere. I love Thai food but know little about cooking it, and I'm too embarrassed to ask! So this book makes me insanely happy."--David Chang "Forget the blurbs - buy this book and start having tasty Thai bites at home! Full disclosure: I have not read this book and am being compensated in khao soi for endorsing it."--Aziz Ansari "Finally, from the brain, heart and kitchen of Kris Yenbamroong, comes Night + Market, a guide to cooking his genius, flavor exploding cuisine at home."--Gwyneth Paltrow "I didn't know that cookbooks could do all of this: be honest and eye-opening, inspiring to both chefs and diners, teach, make you laugh, and make you want to cook.

Oh, and of course the most amazing beers and wines enhance the mood. If you think you know "real" Thai food or that words like sublime, exquisite, and artful only apply to fussy, pretentious, un-fun dining, then Night + Market will rip a hole through the walls of your universe. I might say that chef Kris Yenbamroong creates dishes that epitomize "street meets elite," and he might respond that his exploration of street cuisine in Thailand makes him a connoisseur of the street meat elite, but either way, your mouth will thank you for introducing it to Night + Market."--Shepard Fairey "It's always been a wine place to me, which happens to have the additional bonus of searing, amazing Northern Thai food. I like that I can get my chili endorphin rush along with some cloudy macerated white wine."--James Murphy "In 1982, the same year I launched my original Spago restaurant, Talesai opened a few blocks west of me along the Sunset Strip. I became a late-night regular. That's where I learned from Kris Yenbamroong's grandma how elegant and delicious her royal style of Thai cooking could be. She not only showed me what great Pad Thai should taste like but also helped me come up with a Thai green curry pizza! "Now, a generation later, Kris's Night + Market is doing for Thai food what I did with pizza and other classics at Spago three and a half decades ago: reimagining them for adventurous modern tastes and creating the kind of food that's meant to be enjoyed with wine and other drinks and shared happily with your friends.
