Walking the walk.
Seven Spoons, for years a sustainable-dining trailblazer in Bangkok, is doubling down on its commitment to all that’s good and green with the Dec 2 launch of its new tasting menu.
This Old Town kitchen has long been among our favorite for its fresh and creative Mediterranean-ish dishes fashioned from mostly organic ingredients. Though far from central Bangkok, the rotating menu, warm service, and robust cocktails occasion frequent return trips.
The evening’s menu will showcase ethically-produced goods from ecologically-minded producers such as Surin Farm's pork and free-range chicken, community pickles, migrant-produced sesame, Kodama Farm's vegetables and herbs, and fish from Fisherfolk.
The mouthwatering, seven-course menu includes greenback sardines with red cabbage slaw and horseradish, and persimmon with pastrami and pennywort. Chef and owner Somkiat “Joke” Pairojmahaki, who’s also behind Insects in the Backyard, is pushing the protein-rich, cricket flour pasta with black basil pesto.
There will also be a panel discussion on the night, promising appearances by the sustainable dining community’s top names (yet to be revealed).
And it’s not all talk: Seven Spoons is further demonstrating its willingness to walk the walk by donating the event’s proceeds to Thai Harvest SOS, an NGO dedicated to food waste. For further updates, check out the event page: www.facebook.com/events/293058594528494
