Hotel Mulia Senayan to Host Gourmet Thai Food Extravaganza

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 22 April 2009

The luxury Hotel Mulia Senayan in Jakarta, and its new Pan-Asian restaurant - ORiENT8, will host a special Thai gourmet extravaganza this May.

The hotel is flying in a Michelin-Starred Chef, David Thompson, from his Michelin-Star Thai Restaurant in London, so he can treat Mulia guests to some of his best Thai dishes for a full nine days. The Australian Chef will work with an assisting Thai Chef, Tanongsak Yordwai. The duo will be providing Thai Set Menus from 8 – 16 May 2009, during dinner time only.

David is one of the few chefs that specialises in Thai cuisine to ever receive the prestigious Michelin-Star award.

Born in 1960 in Sydney, Australia, David travelled to Thailand in 1986 and instantly became enamoured with the country, its people and their culture. During his stay, he learnt the fundamentals of Thai cookery, Thai culinary techniques and ancient recipes.

The balance of flavours in Thai dishes creates a cuisine that David considers to be unique and renders other cuisines - at least to him - ordinary by comparison. "Thai food has three levels or tiers: the flavour of the ingredients being used, their textual components and the contrasts of seasoning: sweet, sour, salty and hot," he said.

It is his commitment to authentic Thai cuisine that has earned him many accolades from food writers the world over, including American Gourmet critic, Fred Ferretti who wrote when reviewing Darley Street, "What sets Thompson apart from the many farceurs who scramble willy-nilly the tastes and techniques of Asia and the West, is his rigid honesty, his knowledge and his skill and the perfect balance of taste he achieves with his food."

ORiENT8 is a Pan-Asian restaurant, which serves Asian food from various regions; such as Thai, Vietnamese, and Singaporean, as well as French – which has strong influences on Vietnam’s culinary history and culture.

To experience this Thai gourmet extravaganza at the Hotel Mulia Senayan advance reservations are strongly advised.
