Description

BANGRAK PRESENTS: REGIONS OF THAILAND -
A DINNER SERIES IN 4 PARTS TO BE HELD AT THE HEAVY IN WINTER PARK, FLORIDA.

THE CUISINE OF THAILAND IS DIVIDED INTO 4 DISTINCT REGIONS, EACH WITH THEIR OWN UNIQUE FLAVORS, COOKING TECHNIQUES, AND CULTURAL INFLUENCES. THESE REGIONS ARE CENTRAL THAILAND, NORTHERN THAILAND, NORTHEASTERN THAILAND (ISAAN), AND THE SOUTH.

ALL FOUR PARTS OF THIS SERIES WILL BE HELD IN THE INDOOR-OUTDOOR "BAY" AREA OF THE HEAVY, AMONGST TROPICAL PLANTS AND VEGETATION, IN FLORIDA'S THAILAND-LIKE CLIMATE, TO CREATE AN IMMERSIVE, AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE (IN THE EVENING, SO CALM DOWN), MUCH LIKE EATING IN SHOPHOUSES OR ROADSIDE SHACKS THROUGHOUT THE KINGDOM.

DINNER WILL BE SERVED FAMILY-STYLE, AS IS TRADITIONAL OF A THAI MEAL REGARDLESS OF REGION, MEANING THAT WHILE EACH GUEST WILL HAVE THEIR OWN PLATES AND SILVERWARE, AS WELL AS RICE, COURSES WILL BE SERVED COMMUNALLY IN THE CENTER OF ONE TABLE. KEEP IN MIND THAT TICKETS MAY BE BOUGHT PUBLICALLY SO YOU MAY HAVE TO SIT WITH STRANGERS. IF THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH, THEN THIS EVENT IS PROBABLY NOT FOR YOU.

THERE WILL BE 5 COURSES, ALL CHEF'S CHOICE. DISHES MAY BE SPICY, AND SUBSITUTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. THE MENU WILL NOT BE ANNOUNCED BEFOREHAND. ALCOHOL CANNOT BE PROVIDED, HOWEVER BYOB IS ALLOWED AND STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

The Northeast of Thailand, called Isaan in Thai, lies closely to the border of Laos, sharing influence in both cuisine, dialect, and culture. The poorest region of Thailand, the food relies heavily on rustic cooking methods and different forms of preservation. Flavors are funky from ingredients like Pla Raa, or fermented freshwater fish, spicy from the use of dried chilies, and bright and tart from lime and tamarind. Like the North, sticky rice is the staple grain, with it being the center of every meal - as it will be for yours. As this is Thailand, drinking and eating in Isaan go hand in hand. Choose from one of the three time slots available, and allow the Bangrak team to bring you a meal crafted from numerous travels throughout the country, in a beautiful setting curated by the team at The Heavy / Porch Therapy.
See you there.

Gin Khao!
