About this deal
Recipes are introduced by Pranee who opened the first Giggling Squid with her husband Andy in their small fishmen’s cottage in Brighton 20 year ago. Learn the secrets of their classic and sharing dishes and cook them at home for family and friends and entertain a crowd with a delicious spread of tasty Thai delights. There’s enough good stuff to feel like there’s thought behind it and the wide variety of food that makes Thai cuisine so popular is well represented.
Or if you’re a culinary adventurer and keen to add new dishes to your cooking repertoire, you might be drawn to our Light Meals section which offers delicate Thai rice soups and noodle broths such as Khao Tom with Spicy Prawns and Kuay Jab (rolled rice noodles in five- spice broth) and Thai omelettes (cooked the Thai way and every bit as delicious as the western version). One place has turned into many and it’s now a chain of Thai restaurants across the UK and their debut cookbook is an attempt to make their menu accessible to home cooks. A celebration of classic Thai dishes with innovative twists, this stunning cookbook from the team behind the Giggling Squid restaurants features a selection of their best-loved recipes from tantalising Thai tapas and curries to sweet and fruity desserts.It’s with much joy and some over-excited tentacle waving, that we announce the launch of the first Giggling Squid cookbook. In general I add extra spices to all recipes as they always seem more flavourful that way, but all the base is there to guide you to a great tasting dish. Apart from the luscious photographs throughout the book – it’s worth having on your bookshelf for the food images alone… – you’ll find recipes for Thai Tapas (perfect as starters or canapés to impress your guests), light meals which work beautifully for lunch, brunch or breakfast, iconic stir fries and of course the silky, rich curries that Thailand is famous for.
Not forgetting the pleasure of rounding off a meal with a treat from our Something Sweet dessert section where you’ll find a choice of traditional Thai desserts and ice-creams with tropical flavours. With that same spirit comes this cookbook offering modern dishes with traditional flavors for an unforgettable culinary experience in your own home. LemonSalt have taken every care to ensure that the information is accurate but we strongly recommend that you read the product packaging before use.If you are a reasonably competent cook you’ll realise reading the ingredients measurements that there seems to be mistakes in how much to use especially as far as sugar goes. Thai tapas starters: star signature dishes Golden Money Bags, Sweet Jicama Salad, Candy Pork with Pineapple and Grilled Squid with Garlic. The Giggling Squid Cookbook is a celebration of Thai food from the much loved restaurants famous for their Thai tapas and beautifully designed bold vibrant interiors. Our version of the classic Thai dish, which goes by many different names, but is often known as Weeping Tiger, although the only sound you’ll hear while cooking this dish is the delicious sizzle of beef. Browse through the array of delightfully inspiring recipes as you take a journey through time exploring Thai cuisines hottest hits along with brand new exciting twists that put this cookbook on its pedestal.
A cashew nut stir-fry and coconut rice that’s all the best sweet and spicy bits of Thai cuisine (but I believe owes a debt to The Wok for my improved stir-frying); Lamb Shank Massaman are three words that just can’t fail; and their more unique dishes like Chubby Pork Cheek Stew or butternut squash hollowed out and stuffed with vegetable curry are all decent fodder.
