Bangkok holds a sway over people like no other city. It is consistently ranked the top travel destination in the world; Instagram even named Suvarnabhumi Airport the world's most photographed place in 2012, followed by Siam Paragon, home of Thailand's most sophisticated gourmet market. Food is inextricably linked to travelers' experience of Bangkok, and Thai food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. Yet no cookbook chronicles the real food that Thai people eat every day in this vibrant and modern city. Author Leela Punyaratabandhu is a native of Thailand, and her second book is a deeply personal ode to her hometown. In it, she offers 120 recipes that capture the true spirit of the city-from classic restaurant fare to street eats to weeknight, home-cooked dinners. Stunning food and travel photography from David Loftus will show this beautiful city in all of its cosmopolitan, modern glory.
