Thailand beer brand Chang will be at London’s Old Spitalfields Market this April to host Chang Sensory Trails, a multi-sensorial event centered on Thai flavours, art and music.
Building on last year’s success, Chang Sensory Trails is a free event kicking off its 2017 global campaign in London on April 29, before travelling to San Francisco and Singapore. It’s curated by Chef Bo and Chef Sylan and aims to deliver “the unexpected” by introducing visitors to a modern, refreshing take on Thai food, art and music.
Awarded Asia’s Best Female Chef 2013, Chef Bo is an influential figure in Thai cuisine. Driven by the belief that the best Thai restaurants should be found in Thailand, her restaurant Bo.Lan, co-founded with her husband Chef Dylan, recently placed 19th at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017. The couple met while working at David Thompson’s Nahm, the first Thai fine dining restaurant to receive a Michelin star.
Passionate about sustainable food practices, Bo and Dylan work closely with local farmers, advocating bio-diversified produce as reflected in Bo.Lan’s ever-changing menu, with the aim of achieving zero carbon footprint for their restaurant by 2018. Sharing this same commitment to eco-friendliness, Chang Sensory Trails will only be using biodegradable plates and cups at the event.
Music will include performances by the Live Lounge who will be performing their versions of songs performed on Radio One’s famous slot of the same name.
Meanwhile, anyone can win the chance to savour a special menu and intimate VIP experience with Chefs Bo and Dylan at the chef’s table. The husband and wife team will be personally presenting their interpretations of iconic Thai dishes in a single “course-prohibited” serving, promoting the Thai tradition of sharing food with the rest of the table.
VIP Chef’s Table tickets will be given away on Chang Beer’s Facebook page, UK Twitter profile, @ChangBeerUK and Instagram profile, @changbeeruk — those interested should like and follow for details using #ChangSensoryTrails.
