Cozy winter home cooking hits a little different after a calendar year of on-off indoor dwelling — but, all things considered, we don’t think we’ve ever needed a good cookbook more than we do in 2021. (And if you're looking for more cookbook inspiration for every occasion, click here.) Luckily for us, one beloved Toronto chef put pen to paper last year and created some hibernation salvation for us.
Nuit Regular has been bringing northern Thai food to the people of Toronto since Sukhothai first opened in 2008. In 2020, the beloved chef gifted us once again by pulling back the curtain on some of her best recipes in her first cookbook, Kiin ($38). Meaning ‘eat’ in Thai, and named after her Adelaide Street restaurant, the cookbook contains 120 recipes that take us on a journey across northern Thailand. Colourful plates of panang beef curry, tom yum soup and BBQ pork provide some much-needed escapism.
