A blueprint for eating well, Chiva-Som’s long awaited fourth cookbook offers practical tips on healthy cooking methods, a guide to holistic ingredients and full recipes with beautiful imagery to inspire.
More than just a cookbook, “Cooking with Light” is testament to Chef Paisarn’s conviction that anything is possible with the right mix of creativity, persistence and innovative thinking. This book is an indispensable guide for the healthy home cook and, at the same time, a remarkable resource for the serious cook or professional seeking the how and why of Chef Paisarn’s culinary techniques and creative processes for healthy cooking.
The bright, fresh flavours of Thai cuisine are all present and with each recipe high in nutrients whilst low in fat, salt and sugar, this is clean eating at its most satisfying. Recipes include succulent meat dishes, highly nutritious vegetarian dishes, fish delicacies and surprising desserts.
With a glowing foreword from culinary legend Michel Roux Senior, a longstanding admirer of Chef Paisarn, this cookbook reflects Paisarn’s passion for clean cuisine and the flavours of Thailand. Paisarn’s vision and fusion of European and Thai cuisine at the helm of Chiva-Som has seen the resort win multiple awards. He is regularly invited to participate in culinary events across the world, where his menus are offered alongside a la carte dishes by celebrated chefs such as Michel Roux from the Waterside Inn London, Mark Edwards from Nobu, London and Vineet Bhatia from Rasoi, London.
Cooking with Light is available now at Chiva-Som Boutique at the price of 4,300 THB (comes in hard cover and slipcase) or order online at www.chivasomproducts.com
