"Ricker’s expertise with and affinity for Thai fare make for dishes well worth slurping up." Publishers Weekly
"Andy Ricker is a true authority on Thai cookery. There has never been a book that covers Thai noodles as thoughtfully as Pok Pok Noodles. This book completes a trilogy that tells the story of Thai food, ingredients, and people." CHEF JET TILA, Food Network
"When I think of Andy, I see him in a tattoo form, sitting low, eating noodles. It’s how I always imagine him. So it made perfect sense that he wrote a book about noodles. Now reality just caught up to imagination. I cannot wait to learn from his book and from the people that have become his family in Thailand."
