Mandarin Oriental, Manila takes guests on a culinary journey to the Land of Smiles from March 4 to 10 via the cuisine of a renowned Thai master chef from the legendary Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. Dubbed “Tastes of Thailand” and held in partnership with Thai International Airways, this sixth annual food festival at Paseo Uno will allow diners to experience again the exotic flavors which have made Thai food one of the world’s most-loved Asian cuisines.
My table consisted of my good foodie friends, Rajo Laurel, Nix Alanon, Cecile and Jeroen Van Straten and Chinky Santiago.
Here's what my gang and I had.
Ok fine, we had a lot more than that but you should just go and see for yourself the wondrous spread Mandarin Oriental has for Thai food lovers. It's only till March 10 so make your reservation now.
For those who wish to bring the tastes of Thailand home with them, Chef Sumet will hold a cooking class on March 9 at 9 am, and teach attendees how to prepare authentic Tom Yaam Pla Gub Goong (Spicy fish and prawn soup with lemongrass and straw mushrooms), Gai Ob Khamin (Oven-baked chicken marinated with yellow turmeric yoghurt), and Khow Niew Mamaung (Coconut sticky rice with mango). The class fee is PHP 3,500 nett inclusive of a three-course lunch and a light breakfast preceding the class. Attendees receive a certificate, a recipe booklet with Chef Sumet’s autograph, and an apron.
