About the Author

ANGUS AN is a critically acclaimed and award-winning chef. A graduate of the French Culinary Institute, An has worked or staged at many Michelin-starred restaurants around the world. After moving to Vancouver in 2006, he opened the lauded farm-to-table restaurant Gastropod. In 2009, in response to a changing economy, he rebranded his restaurant to Maenam, introducing authentic Thai flavours with modern techniques and local ingredients. An has since opened five other casual eateries each with a distinct concept serving casual Thai and Southeast Asian street food.


Advance Praise for Maenam

"Maenam exudes freshness and flavor. Citrusy lemongrass and spicy Nahm Prik are almost palpable flicking through Angus An's modern homage to Thai cooking. This is a sure inspiration for many meals to come."
--Yotam Ottolenghi

"Chef Angus An's fresh, light and innovative approach to Thai cuisine is equally influenced by family and personal experiences, his mentor David Thompson's teachings, the ingredients of the great Pacific Northwest and his skill and background in French cooking technique. The result is a very appealing collection of recipes that, while appearing elevated and refined, are very approachable for the home cook. This handsome book will be a welcome addition to my collection and should be part of yours as well!"
--Andy Ricker, chef/owner of Pok Pok Restaurants

"Angus An's elevation of Thai cuisine through aesthetic, intensity and high skill have made him a national treasure. This book is visually stunning and a study in one soul's personal and original Thai cooking."
--David McMillan, author and chef/co-owner of Joe Beef Restaurant Group

"Angus An's Maenam is a useful and inspiring cookbook that shows how to create Thai dishes with fresh and local ingredients. Both home cooks and professional chefs can find dishes with layered and balanced flavors as well as exciting techniques. From street food to dessert recipes, it is a wonderful celebration of Thai cuisine, and a must-have cookbook for every kitchen."
--Chef Susur Lee

"Angus takes iconic flavors of Thai cuisine and transforms them into creative, elegant, and absolutely gorgeous dishes. The perfect blend of traditional and modern, Maenam is a truly unique Thai cookbook."
--Pailin Chongchitnant, author of Hot Thai Kitchen
