Chef Katie Chin: ‘Everday Thai Cooking’

Posted: Updated:
Chef Katie Chin was here, her cookbook ‘Everday Thai Cooking’ features healthy and simple meals perfect for summer. Today's 20 minute meal…a mango and prawn salad.

In Everyday Thai Cooking, Katie Chin—a chef hailed as the 'Asian Rachel Ray' by her many fans—shares her recipe secrets along with tips, tools, and techniques that enable you to easily bring delectable homemade Thai dishes to your table!

As the daughter of award-winning restaurateur Leeann Chin, Katie's heritage has been deeply rooted in the cultivation of fine Asian cuisine. Katie has since taken the culinary world by storm as a well-respected food writer, television personality, and now published author.

Katie is a success among the cooking community, however, her true reward stems from her success at home. As working mother of toddler twins, Katie realized a need for simple, easy and delicious Thai recipes that call for accessible ingredients and Everyday Thai Cooking delivers just that.

Everyday Thai Cooking offers basic recipes for staple dishes that include both homemade and store-bought options. From appetizers to desserts, each step-by-step recipe lists preparation times (most within thirty minutes) and alternates for less accessible ingredients. Everyday Thai Cooking features more than 100 simple Thai recipes, including
