About this deal

In celebration of the Coronation, our chefs created a Coronation Special fit for a King with a Royal Thai Tea and it proved so popular that some of our Giggling restaurants have decided to continue offering it. It’s never too early to start considering the best restaurants for your Christmas party if you’ve been tasked with organising the team festive outing or if you’re the person who always rallies friends and family for gatherings and seasonal fun!

Nothing gets us Giggling like flavour, freshness, fire and fizz – not only in our Thai-licious dishes but also in our cocktails and mocktails.

But people loved the crisp pastry and the herby chicken filling, and they’re now one of our most most-requested dishes. One place has turned into many and it’s now a chain of Thai restaurants across the UK and their debut cookbook is an attempt to make their menu accessible to home cooks. Dishoom’s debut cookbook is a great example, a comprehensive exploration of their menu and the extensive work behind seemingly simple dishes.Recipes are introduced by Pranee who opened the first Giggling Squid with her husband Andy in their small fishmen’s cottage in Brighton 20 year ago. Loosely translated, Sanuk is about making the most out of the everyday – so dive in, don’t be afraid to experiment and ideally enjoy a few giggles along the way.

If you’re a Giggling Squid ultra or this is your first introduction to Thai cooking, you’ll probably get a lot from this. Browse through the array of delightfully inspiring recipes as you take a journey through time exploring Thai cuisines hottest hits along with brand new exciting twists that put this cookbook on its pedestal. A celebration of classic Thai dishes with innovative twists, this stunning cookbook from the team behind the Giggling Squid restaurants features a selection of their best-loved recipes from tantalising Thai tapas and curries to sweet and fruity desserts. For as long as we have been operating, we’ve had requests for recipes from guests who’ve loved our food as much as we do.

Or if you’re a culinary adventurer and keen to add new dishes to your cooking repertoire, you might be drawn to our Light Meals section which offers delicate Thai rice soups and noodle broths such as Khao Tom with Spicy Prawns and Kuay Jab (rolled rice noodles in five- spice broth) and Thai omelettes (cooked the Thai way and every bit as delicious as the western version). Paneang is a less well-known Thai curry, which due to its vibrant red colour is often mistaken for its fiery red cousin. Learn the secrets of their classic and sharing dishes and cook them at home for family and friends and entertain a crowd with a delicious spread of tasty delights.

On that menu is everything that makes Thai cuisine so brilliant: curries of all colours, noodles that are sweet, spicy, salty and sour in equal measure and vibrant stir-fries and salads. If you are a reasonably competent cook you’ll realise reading the ingredients measurements that there seems to be mistakes in how much to use especially as far as sugar goes. From authentic tapas-style starters like Golden Money Bags and Sweet Jicama Salad to beef, curry and rice dishes; this cookbook offers up tantalising Thai recipes with an exciting twist. Apart from the luscious photographs throughout the book – it’s worth having on your bookshelf for the food images alone… – you’ll find recipes for Thai Tapas (perfect as starters or canapés to impress your guests), light meals which work beautifully for lunch, brunch or breakfast, iconic stir fries and of course the silky, rich curries that Thailand is famous for.

The Giggling Squid Cookbook’ is a celebration of Thai food from the much loved restaurants famous for their Thai tapas and beautifully designed bold vibrant interiors. Plus exciting chapters inspired by the latest exciting addition to the restaurant menu - breakfasts and light meals and a special drinks section with spicy teas and zingy cocktails and mocktails. We introduced these on a special menu to celebrate Veganuary and they proved so popular we couldn’t part with them. We love a season change here at Giggling Squid and Autumn is one of our faves – there’s nothing like a luscious Thai Green Curry or comfort-food-extraordinaire Pad Thai to warm the cockles (as Grandma Squid likes to say) when the weather’s getting a little blustery.
