Taste the "Sustainable Thai Gastronomy": From the Michelin Restaurant that Created Recipes for the APEC 2022 Gala Dinner

“In a river, fishes swarm. On a field, rice abounds.” The ancient proverb that echoes the fertility of the land and how Thai people had lived in closeness with nature since the old times. Thai culture is one that depends on finding a way to learn and live symbiotically with nature, as can be seen in how Thai people created recipes. R-HAAN, as a fine dining establishment and Michelin restaurant with Chef Chumpol Jangprai’s innovative visions, commits to draw from the authentic Thai cuisine the crucial aspect of sustainability, that is, the way to cook with the welfare of people and nature in mind, to create the “Sustainable Thai Gastronomy”.
