The growing reputation of Thai food as being one of the world’s favorite cuisines has caused a spotlight to be shone on the preparation and presentation of this flavorful and complex cuisine. Several restaurants have risen to the challenge and offer Thai, luxury fine dining in Bangkok.
But to offer Thai, luxury fine dining in Bangkok is to raise an already lofty bar even higher. Thai food is known for the complexity and depth of its flavors as well as the complicated steps involved in its preparation and presentation. With the ever-present goal in Thai food to achieve a perfect balance of flavors in every dish offered, the skills and natural talent of chefs who are at the pinnacle of Thai cuisine have to be experienced to be believed.
Fresh Ingredients Are Everything
There is almost a religious devotion to freshness as the basic starting point to the proper preparation of Thai cuisine. Although a tropical country, Thailand has three discernible seasons, the hot season, the rainy season and the cool season. Each of the seasons features a variety of crops as they also represent agricultural growing seasons.
Talented Thai chefs learn each of the fruits, vegetables, herbs and grains expected in the seasons and choose only the freshest and ripest of the seasonal bounty to include in their elegantly prepared dishes.
Only in Thailand
For many food aficionados, both local and international, the best Thai food can only be found in Thailand because of this single-minded devotion to the freshest and ripest ingredients. And while there is always a lively debate as to which restaurant offers the best of the best, there is very little argument that some of the best Thai, luxury fine dining is found in Bangkok. The next time you visit the city, experience Thai cuisine in a fine dining restaurant to experience what you’ve been missing.
