With the huge success of Spirit House,Thai Cooking, first published in 2004 and the four later editions of that book and numerous requests from our clientele for a new cook-book Helen Brierty and Annette Fear have produced the latest book called simply Spirit House, The Cookbook. With years of experience head chef at Spirit House, Annette Fear, has a great understanding how families eat on a daily basis and how they want to entertain at home. teaching four hands-on cooking classes every week has given Annette a personal insight into major recipe requirements of the many people who attend the classes which can be simply summed up by the mantra - fast, fresh and fabulous. The new cookbook is a continuation of Annette's proven successful recipe formula - easily sourced ingredients, clear instructions, frequent chef's tips and techniques, suggestions for serving, background explanations of the more exotic spices and ingredients, together with a useful guide to preparation and cooking times. With recipes from easy to moderate to challenging there are delicious recipes for every home cook to explore the balance of sweet, sour, salty and spicy Thai flavours and to feel confident about successfully presenting these dishes to their family & friends. This latest cookbook is sure to become another long serving Spirit House classic.
