A journey through northern Thailand in 120 authentic recipes with stunning location photography.

Nuit Regular offers the unique flavours of northern Thai food in a stunning collection of authentic recipes, essays, and location photography. Inspired by the ingredients and aromas of growing up in northern Thailand, Nuit learned to cook in her mother’s kitchen. Cooking food with ingredients from the market or family garden, this cookbook is a reflection of Nuit’s life in Thailand and her passion for cooking and sharing Thai cuisine with others.

Kiin, which means “eat” in Thai, transports readers to northern Thailand on a journey to discover the ingredients, markets, and culture that inform all of the recipes. A Thai meal rarely has just one dish—and you will have plenty of recipes to cook and share in the traditional Thai style—a tableful of brightly coloured dishes that the whole family can pass around and enjoy. The recipes, including Steamed Chicken Dumplings, Vegetarian Golden Bags, Spicy and Sour Soup with Shrimp and Tom Yum Paste, Northern Beef Curry, Young Green Jackfruit Curry, Rice Vermicelli Noodles with Barbecue Pork, Five Spice Chicken with Egg, Papaya Salad, and Mango Sticky Rice, are a glimpse into the wonders of northern Thai food.

    TRUSTED AUTHORITY: Nuit grew up in Northern Thailand and moved to North America in 2004. She has transformed the Toronto Thai food scene and is the first Thai Select Ambassador for Canada.

    STRONG MEDIA PRESENCE: Nuit has been profiled widely in the media including Washington Post, Refinery29, Forbes, Eater, The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Toronto Life, Chatelaine, House & Home, Food & Drink, Breakfast Television, and on the Food Network.

    BRAND PARTNERSHIPS: Upcoming brand partnerhsips include American Express and All-Clad.

    PROVEN FORMAT: The terrific success of books like Jerusalem demonstrate that readers are interested in books that combine armchair travel and food.

    ASIAN COOKING IS HOT: With seven Thai restaurants operating, the author is opening a new restaurant in spring 2020.

    GORGEOUSLY DESIGNED: A stunning book with food and landscape images shot in Thailand by award-winning photographers Michael Graydon and Nikole Herriott.
