About this deal

At best it can be a peek behind the curtain, a thrilling glimpse into the kitchen sorcery that goes into your favourite dishes. There’s something so immediately satisfying and a little theatrical about eating with your hands and these little nests are best enjoyed without cutlery. Our recipes range from dishes you’ll recognise if you’ve dined in at a Giggling Squid to brand new, hitherto unseen 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. It’s straightforward enough and as Thai ingredients are now very easy to source in the big supermarkets you should have no difficulties in finding them unless it’s the more bespoke ingredients like galangal or Thai Basil.

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.

Nothing gets us Giggling like flavour, freshness, fire and fizz – not only in our Thai-licious dishes but also in our cocktails and mocktails. With a little tweaking and a lot of lemon juice (not in the recipe) I managed to balance out the sweetness and really enjoyed the curry in the end.

With that same spirit comes this cookbook offering modern dishes with traditional flavors for an unforgettable culinary experience in your own home. Octopi have been shown to use tools, cuttlefish can camouflage in an instant and squid giggle if you give them ten-tickles (I’m very, very sorry). 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. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Made the winter warmer curry with the stated 6tbls of sugar and ended up with six cavities just testing the sauce more sugar than a litre bottle of coke.

These found their way onto our menu by popular demand as we used to only offer them as canapés at opening parties for new restaurants. There are vegetarian and vegan recipes throughout and delightfully sticky deserts with sweet,fruity Thai flavours. In general I add extra spices to all recipes as they always seem more flavourful that way, but all the base is there to guide you to a great tasting dish.We introduced these on a special menu to celebrate Veganuary and they proved so popular we couldn’t part with them. 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. This Giggle Squid Cookbook was written by Pranee and her husband Andy who opened the first Giggling Squid restaurant in their small Brighton fishmonger's cottage over 20 years ago.

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). 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 Thai delights. We are committed to offering the best value to our members, with a satisfaction guarantee on both your membership and merchandise.It was originally a nickname for the son of co-founders Andy and Pranee and subsequently the name of their first restaurant in Brighton. But people loved the crisp pastry and the herby chicken filling, and they’re now one of our most most-requested dishes.
