If you’ve missed your chance to join the {Re} food forum talks, don’t fret. You can still dine with some of Southeast Asia’s best chefs.

From Mar 16-21, Bangkok will be inundated by some of the biggest kitchen names in the region, who are flying in to talk at the Bo.lan-initiated {Re} forum on sustainable food practices.

They’ll also be whipping up some amazing public dinners the whole week, in collaboration with some of the biggest local food names.

One of the most exciting dinners take place on Mar 21, when chef Luis “Chele” Gonzalez from Gallery Vask in Manila (no. 39, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017) cooks at Bunker alongside Ivan Brehm of Singapore’s one-Michelin-star Bacchanalia (B7,000 net including wine).

Every dinner at {Re} will be prepared according to the forum’s principals: Chefs must limit waste, use only locally sourced produce from known farms, focusing on endemic Asian ingredients. After each dinner, all waste will be weighed and audited by Thai based Non-Government-Organisation Scholars of Sustenance, who will also be redistributing leftovers to the needy.

Any proceeds will be donated to sustainable agricultural charities in Southeast Asia.
