DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Bangkok is already well-known for having some of the most famous street food in the world. With the city’s first Michelin guide published in late 2017, its burgeoning fine dining scene was recognized on the global stage, revealing that Thailand’s capital has one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan and well-rounded dining scenes. Delve into this exciting evolving scene where the city’s best chefs are vying to put forth well-selected degustation menus and new ingredients, digging deep into Thai roots while pushing the boundaries. Beyond just dining at the top tables, be granted the ultimate insider access to the top chefs themselves: sit at their table, cook with them, eat with the whole team, have drinks at their favorite bars, and more.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Bangkok

Arrive in Bangkok and meet your guide in the arrivals hall for your private transfer to your hotel. The Rosewood Bangkok sits on the busy Sukhumvit Road in the heart of the city. After checking in, spend the day at leisure. If arriving in the morning, opt to begin your foray into the capital’s fine dining scene with lunch at a top table, such as 1-star Sorn, just a short distance from your hotel. Housed in a beautiful almost 100 year old home with seating for only 22 guests, Sorn specializes in southern Thai cuisine, presenting a pre-fixe menu of 22 courses. Try to leave some room for dinner at another acclaimed restaurant. A couple streets over from your hotel is the famed Gaggan, voted No. 1 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants four years in a row, or also along Sukhumvit is Bo.Lan, recognized as one of the best Thai restaurants in the city. Finally late in the evening is the real treat of the day: head out for late night with one of Bangkok’s most celebrated chefs for food and drinks. Go to his favorite restaurants and bars where you’ll also meet his friends, some of Bangkok’s top dining scene leaders and innovators. Hang out and hear his story, learn about where he draws inspiration and passion.

DAY 2: Bangkok

This morning, get hands on with a private cooking class with the popular Chef Ian Kittichai at his cooking school. Chef Kittichai is an award-winning chef, author, and television personality most well-known for his unique approach to classic Thai cuisine with varied cooking techniques. Watch and learn how to craft Thai staples under Chef’s guidance, then enjoy the dishes for lunch. The afternoon is yours to spend at your leisure. In the evening, be ready for another exclusive close-up with a Michelin-starred chef and watch them in action. Arrive at the restaurant before opening time and go behind the scenes into the kitchen. The esteemed head chef will walk you through the kitchen and show you how the team gets ready for dinner service and explain . After getting a look at how ingredients are handled and transformed into dishes, taste the final product for dinner at the Chef’s table.

DAY 3: Departure

To truly appreciate the food scene in Bangkok, head to the humble Klong Toei market, the largest wet market in the city where many chefs come to gather inspiration, eat, and buy ingredients. Arrive early to watch porters trickle in with their goods, mingle with the housewives and restaurant staff that come to browse, and taste some of the typical Thai breakfast foods like salapao (pork buns) and jok (rice porridge). Make sure to leave some room for one final exclusive experience: the opportunity to get an insider’s look at a Michelin-starred restaurant’s inner culture as the guest at a family meal, or staff meal. An important practice and paramount to the culture of a restaurant, family meal is the time when kitchen and restaurant staff come together to eat, talk, and bond before lunch or dinner service. These comforting meals often utilize leftover ingredients from the kitchen but the creation is carefully crafted and left up to the chef’s creativity. Some of these family meals are as legendary as the restaurants themselves. Enjoy the special meal before bidding farewell and heading to the airport for your flight onward.
