"Craving your favorite Thai dishes? No need for takeout. Try cooking from Danette St. Onge's new The Better-than-Takeout Thai Cookbook.

"This book has great recipes but, in addition, it has a personality and style that I just fell in love with. My favorite dish, Drunken Noodles, is described as a dish that allegedly stems from the fact "that some lushes love to eat spicy food during (or after) a late-night bender." Just delightful! (PS - The Pomelo salad with toasted coconut and mint is our new family favorite! " –Monica Bhide, author of several Indian cookbooks and food memoirs, including Modern Spice: Inspired Indian Flavors for the Contemporary Kitchen-Simon & Schuster, 2009
