Thai food is delicious, period. Just think of all the dishes you can rattle off the tip of your tongue and salivate over just by thinking about them – there’s fiery pad thai, tangy papaya salad, comforting green curry, and don’t even get us started on dessert.
But according to Chef Tubtim Warapai of Park Hyatt in Bangkok, many people get it all wrong when they munch down on some Thai grub.
“A traditional Thai meal is done family-sharing style. Where a group of people eat every dish at the same time with rice, and dessert is kept as the last dish,” shares the chef who is from North-east Isan in Thailand. “However, many people like to approach Thai cuisine on a Western-style course by course basis, which takes away from the communal spirit of Thai-style dining.”
Luckily, she’ll be in town to right our wrongs during her residency at Andaz Singapore! From 3 to 14 February, 2020 Chef Tubtim will be cooking up a storm at Auntie’s Wok and Steam to showcase authentic Thai cuisine from her hometown of North-east Isan.
The Thai chef is the first of a slew of female chefs visiting Andaz Singapore this year as part of their culinary series that aims to celebrate the unique taste of Asian street food with a special dose of female power.
