Thailand
The Abundant Land and Sea

 

The Thai proverb “There are fish in the water and rice in the fields”, gains its significance from a kingdom rich agricultural and royal heritage since the Sukhothai era. As a land of plenty, we have inherited a cuisine rich in culture and variety over the years. Tonight’s Gala Dinner menu combines all the different tastes and ingredients with a dinner service on exquisite hand-painted classical Thai porcelains.

Senses of Thai Cuisine

The 5 Senses of Thai Cuisine comprise the visual, taste, aroma, color and texture. For the audience to fully experience Thai delicacies, the dishes have to be meticulously created with all 5 senses of Thai Cuisine.

 

Spirits of Thai Tastes

The essence of Thai tastes consists of 8 flavors which are; sourness, sweetness, creaminess, saltiness, spiciness, bitterness, acerbity, and diffuseness. Thai Cuisine is a delicate balance of tastes which are released harmoniously in one bite.
