    Made in Thailand

    Guru, Published on 05/07/2019

    » To say that Thailand has been getting global recognition lately may be a bit of an understatement. After all, it's not a secret that it's a famous tourist destination with plenty of beautiful beaches and street food that's been topping lists for years now. Of course, these are only just a few things Thailand is well-known for but we don't really have the time to get into all of that (*cough* rigged election *cough*). However, people from the outside may have a narrow view of what Thailand and its culture really is, but fortunately, there are things that help put a spotlight on these things. The next instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise is filming right now in parts of Thailand, including Krabi where its governor stated that the film would be a "great advertisement for the nature, culture and history of the kingdom". Erm sure, that's what the Fast and Furious franchise is all about anyway. While the film will most likely be more about cars zoom-zooming and vroom-vrooming, there are a number of shows on TV that give a better focus on Thai culture. Here are a few.

    Food for thought and deep pockets

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 17/12/2017

    » Reading about the launch of Bangkok's first-ever Michelin Guide, I felt a little guilty having just consumed my own gourmet dish of baked beans on toast. A generous topping of grated parmesan cheese hardly lifted it into a creation that would win the approval of a Michelin bon vivant. Anyway, congratulations to all the restaurants that get a mention, even though I can't afford them. I wonder if any of them do a chip butty or mushy peas?

    A reluctant star

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 19/12/2017

    » Jay Fai usually opens her shop around 3pm. But these days, no matter how early you get to Mahachai Road, it's likely you'll find a commotion and a line of people waiting for a seat. Plastic chairs have been put out on the footpath, but an army of cameras and phone-toting would-be customers still stand in front of the kitchen and reservation tables, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "omelette queen" herself.

    The Japanese master

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/12/2017

    » Just because you're outside of the capital doesn't mean you can't enjoy star-studded dining too. Last month, InterContinental Hua Hin Resort kicked off their series of world-class dining events by bringing in two-Michelin-starred chef Takagi Kazuo, of Kyoto Cuisine Takagi, for a special traditional menu paired with sake. The master of a rare Kyoto cuisine, or "Kyo-ryori", presented a feast that looked like a gorgeous picture of autumn on a plate -- using Tasmanian sea's salmon, abalone, scallops from Hokkaido and hand-picked autumn leaves straight from Kyoto. Showcasing the beauty of Japan's former capital, the beautifully-plated dishes were not a replica of his menus served back in Japan, but a tweaked version that was adapted to suit Thai culture and style. Befitting this grand occasion, the meal was served at La Residence, the hotel's colonial jewel. Before he jetted off to the next fancy dinner he was cooking, we had a quick chat with the chef about Kyoto cuisine and his work ideals.
