Sabai: The state of being when you’re at ease. Comfortable. Relaxed.

Pailin Chongchitnant knows that a busy schedule can make learning new recipes seem intimidating–whether you’re familiar with the cuisine or not. In her second book, Pai will empower you to make Thai food part of your everyday routine, with a compilation of authentic and straightforward recipes, like Beef Laab or Green Curry Chicken with Winter Melon, that are quick to make and delicious to eat. From prepping, to cooking, to eating, the dishes in this book can be done sabai sabai, as the saying goes.

Pai takes you through every recipe with her signature level of detail and warm, encouraging style. And she’s thought of plenty of shortcuts, tips, and tricks to get dinner on the table, no matter how hectic the day has been. There are even QR codes linking to her YouTube videos on tips, techniques, and more to support you every step of the way.
