MODERN THAI CUISINE AT ITS FINEST CHEF KRIT INTRODUCES AN EXCITING NEW “THAI JOURNEY” MENU AT BASIL

          Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok, at basil, Chef Krit combines the latest culinary techniques with his natural flair for artistic presentation to create the finest modern Thai cuisine.
From January, Chef Krit presents an outstanding new "Thai Journey" menu. Bold and inventive, while still ensuring the flavors are authentic, the menu features intriguing locally sourced ingredients seldom found on restaurant menus elsewhere. Diners can embark on Chef Krit's "Thai Journey" with 9 or 7 courses or choose to dine à la carte.
          Highlights include hummingbird tree flowers stuffed with chicken and crab meat accompanied by salted fish and coconut milk foam, a classic combination of central Thai flavours. Chef Krit also creates a delicious paste with seasonal rice field crab complemented by roasted sticky rice and pungent mustard greens. His grilled river prawn with sweet fish sauce, cream of fried shallots and neem buds is a symphony of flavors. Flowering in the cool season, neem buds are said to be an elixir and their bitterness contrasts beautifully with the sweetness of the prawns and shallot. Next, diners can enjoy seared tuna with bamboo shoots, pumpkin, water dropwort and fermented fish innards, a southern Thai dish renowned for its pungency, here cleverly reinterpreted by Chef Krit to create a more delicate flavor.
          Staying in the south but embracing Chinese-Thai influences and modern techniques, his pork belly is slow cooked in shrimp paste for 24 hours to succulent perfection and served with quail egg, Christmas berry leaves and nitta beans, while his braised beef short ribs in a southern curry use sharp and spicy pickled finger roots to cut to through the richness of the beef and creamy curry sauce.
          The unforgettable exploration of Thailand's extraordinary culinary landscape ends with a Mekhong Thai rum infused pineapple with toasted coconut ice cream, a devilishly delicious dish inspired by the Puerto Rican cocktail, Pina Colada but created using Thai ingredients.
          basil's Chef Krit is renowned for his contemporary take on Thai cuisine that remains true to authentic flavors. He studied at the prestigious California School of Culinary Arts and Le Cordon Bleu where he learnt French cooking techniques. He has worked at Bouchon Bistro in Beverley Hills, California, owned by 3-star Michelin Chef Thomas Keller and in top kitchens in Japan. It's in these two countries that he was introduced to the modern techniques and artistic presentation that have come to define his unique style.
          Chef Krit's new "Thai Journey" menu is available as 9 courses for THB 2,100++ and 7 courses for THB 1,850++ or choose your own favorite dishes for à la carte dining.
