Kiin: Recipes and Stories from Northern Thailand
By Nuit Regular
2020 • Penguin Canada
A journey through Northern Thailand in 120 authentic recipes with stunning location photography.
Award-winning chef, Nuit Regular, offers the distinct flavour of Northern Thai food in a stunning collection of authentic recipes, essays, and location photography. Inspired by the flavours and aromas of growing up in Northern Thailand, Nuit learned to cook in her mother’s kitchen. Spending summers in an inspiring Northern Thai town with her grandmother, hunting with her dad, chasing snakes with her uncle, and cooking food with ingredients from the market or family garden, the cookbook is a reflection of Nuit’s life in Thailand and her passion for cooking and sharing Thai cuisine with others.
Kiin, which means “eat” in Thai, transports readers to Northern Thailand on a journey to discover the ingredients, markets, and culture that inform all of the recipes. A Thai meal rarely has just one dish and you will have plenty of recipes to cook and share in traditional Thai-style—a table full of brightly coloured dishes that the whole family can pass around and enjoy. The recipes, including Steamed Chicken Dumplings, Rice Vermicelli with Fish Curry Soup, Red Pork on Rice, Northern Beef Curry, Green Mango Salad, and Mango Sticky Rice are a glimpse into the wonders of Northern Thai food.
