"Kay Plunkett-Hogge's cooking and knowledge of Thai cuisine is next to none. I dream about her food. Thank God she's written this book." - Diana Henry
"I have been fortunate enough to have eaten some of the dishes in this book cooked by Kay herself and they have been some of the most delicious and wonderful meals I have ever had. She is a true master of Thai cuisine and of cooking from the heart. This is a book to be treasured.”
"This book makes me hungry. Truly a beautiful, personal, delicious and easy-to-use guide to Thai cuisine full of stories and tips that make the food jump off the page and onto the plate."
"Wise, witty, and wonderfully written, Baan sits alongside David Thompson's Thai Food and Andy Ricker's Pok Pok as one of the great English language works on regional Thai cookery."
"The indomitable Kay Plunkett-Hogge has a very unique place in the world of Thai food: a true Thai Farang, born in Thailand, a native speaker, yet British AF! As a result, her grasp of the cuisine is at once a birth right and filtered through a western lens. Her access to true Thai flavors through those who have shared their knowledge is unparalleled and yet the food she champions is accessible to the average western cook. Delightful recipes and bright anecdotes to accompany make this book a must have for the aficionado and novice alike." — Andy Ricker
"Kay's true home is Thailand. Rarely have I met someone with such a love of a country, its people and their food. This book, so aptly named Baan, is the result of her journey through the Kingdom and many kitchens. It is home cooking, the true source of the best of Thai food. Kay recounts the charm, delicious fun and spirit of Thai kitchens in this book. I am captivated." — David Thompson
"At last, a book I can wholeheartedly recommend to all those who want to make Thai food but perhaps feel intimidated. Kay's warm conversational style puts the cook and the reader at ease. Her recipes are wonderfully clear, and the photographs and lively stories of her life growing up in Thailand are a real pleasure." — Naomi Duguid
