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.

Recognized as an immensely popular tourist destination home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches as well as party-heavy nightlife, the cuisine of the South of Thailand remains a hushed secret to many of its vistors who choose to dine on its tourist-focused fare, leaving many of its exclusively southern classic dishes to be cooked only to locals, tourists “in the know“ or the homes of families. With heavy influence from neighboring Malaysia and Indonesia, as well as an immense Muslim population, Southern Thai dishes introduce foreign diners to flavors they might not immediately associate with Thai food. It is also some of the spiciest food in the country - so be warned. A heavy use of seafood, both fresh and fermented, can be found in many dishes, as well as striking amounts of black pepper and turmeric, calling to mind the cooking of South Asian cultures. Jasmine rice is the staple grain throughout the region - as it will be for your meal. 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!
