Event description

Description

Suthiporn "Tui" Sungkamee was known for elevating Thai cuisine in Los Angeles to new heights. The co-owner of Jitlada restaurant, working with his sister, Sarintip "Jazz" Singsanong, specialized in southern Thai dishes that attracted crowds and chefs from across the country. (Jitlada was always included in Jonathan Gold’s 101 Best Restaurants list.) Sungkamee died last fall, but his in uence can be seen in the cooking of a number of local chefs. "The vibrancy of Sungkamee’s approach to strong southern avors proved that Thai chefs didn’t have to cook for some imagined non-Thai customer," Gold wrote after Sungkamee’s death. "They could be just as successful cooking for themselves." Sungkamee's cooking inspired customers to "discover the challenging food of his native region — to embrace the ideas of regionality, unusual spices and challenging avors themselves."

As a tribute to late chef Tui Sungkamee (Jitlada), The Line Hotel will bring together Kris Yenbamroong (Night + Market Song), Andy Ricker (Pok Pok), Jet Tila, Louis Tikaram (E.P. & L.P.), Roy Choi (Kogi) and Jazz Singsanong (Jitlada) for a night to celebrate his life. The event will feature tastings, food stations and live entertainment including DJ Chris Holmes.
