The Thai cuisine isn’t about simplicity. It’s about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish. The secret to all Thai food lies in the subtle differences in the proportions of ingredients used which can add layers of flavor and aroma. Another distinguishing features of Thai cuisine is the combination of flavorings from the different spices including mint leaves, lime leaves, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, curry, cilantro, galangal, chilli, and basil which give Thai cuisine a unique flavor and character.
In this special culinary festival, we have invited a guest chef from Thailand named Chef Arun and he will collaborate with our executive chef, Chef Malik to do a cooking demo after the press conference on April 1st, 2016. They both will present two menus of Thailand Cuisine that is Seabass Thai Red Curry and Spicy Shrimp Salad with Thai Herbs which consist of prawn, lemongrass, spring onion, lime leave, fish sauce and lemon juice also coriander leaves.
