This isn't exactly a time-sensitive pickle, but can anyone recommend a good Thai cookbook? I'm looking for pretty standard recipes like you'd get in a good restaurant, nothing fancy, but I'd like them to be reliable. Thanks!

I have one that is definitly a beginner Thai book, but I love it - The Beautiful Cookbook - are those even still in print? It's a cookbook / coffee table book almost. There is a whole series of them ... ah yes - you can order from Amazon of course!
While Peter no longer works for Food52 he still thinks up ways to make the website better.

@ Peter--what a great site! Thank you for sharing it!
Drbabs, glad you like it. Now if only I could wrestle a cookbook of food memoir list or two out of the Food52 community. ;-)
Check out the website of the It Rains Fishes author. You can try some of the recipes and see if you will like her book:
I'm not sure it's really what you're looking for because it's pretty big and not entirely basic, but look through a copy of "The Food of Thailand: A Journey for Food Lovers" some time. It's gorgeous and part of a really nice series of cookbooks with great pictures, interesting information and really delicious food.
