W W W. C R A F T BY U M H . C O M The Drinking Food of Thailand ($35) is a mouthwatering deep dive into the sub- set of Thai cuisine devoted to aahaan kap klaem (“drinking food”) by chef Andy Ricker and co-author JJ Goode. Ricker’s carried a torch for Thailand and its fare for decades now, and in this grit- ty pictorial of Thai street food culture and collection of incredible, authentic recipes it’s not difficult to understand why. From approachable dishes like the ones I’ve featured here to the decidedly audacious offal-laden and undead—the Dancing Shrimp are indeed still tango- ing—I reckon you’ll develop a crush of your own. I certainly have. – Cori Paige © Hundred-to-One LLC 2018. All rights reserved.
