MANGO TREE WORLDWIDE PROPELS UNIQUE SOUTHERN THAI CULINARY CULTURE TO THE WORLD STAGE IN NEW GLOBAL INITIATIVE
Leading Thai restaurant brand with 70 outlets worldwide launches “roots and fruits” campaign by inviting head chefs from 13 countries to discover Southern Thai culinary culture ahead of global launch later this year
Pioneering Thai restaurant operator, Mango Tree Worldwide, is leading a campaign to discover the “roots” of southern Thai culinary culture ahead of bringing the “fruits” of its learnings to the world later this year.
The restaurant group just returned from trip to Surat Thani and Nakorn Sri Thammarat where 15 chefs dived deep into southern Thai culture learning from local communities who live in a genuinely sustainable way, using everything around them, inspired by the teachings of the late King Rama IX.
During the time in the south the group worked with fishermen and farmers to understand the true essence and heart of Southern Thai culinary culture through a series of workshops to learn about native ingredients, cooking techniques and most importantly their cultural context.
Activities included shrimp farming for shrimp paste, picking local vegetables and herbs rarely found outside of the south – and how jak (niddy palm) leaves are used at three stages of its growth for different things – when it is flowering for salad or yum, for rolling cigarettes and then the roofs of houses. The seeds are also used for desert and shrimp farming and the stalks for making fish houses, a place where fish and shrimp gather where they get re-caught after three months and sold in the market for an average of THB3,000.
“It was a truly eye opening experience – and what we all got from it more than anything else was that if you can’t understand the culture you can’t understand the food,” said Trevor MacKenzie, Mango Tree’s Global Managing Director. “The hospitality of the southern people was amazing. I think as city people we forget where everything comes from and all the hard work that goes into making what we consume daily.
“Culture is at the heart of the cuisine and by experiencing this at local level we were able to gain great insights into the true origins of Southern Thai food and understand is subtleties, complexities and beauty – all of which is essential as we prepare to launch our new southern Thai menus across the world in October this year.”
One of the kingdom’s four culinary regions, southern Thailand is famous for its intense aromas, tangy sourness and spicy heat. Due to its geography – a peninsula lapped by the Andaman Sea to the west and the Gulf of Thailand to the east – the south is also famous for its fresh seafood, while Malay and Chinese influences also feature strongly. Popular dishes include gaeng som (tamarind curry), kua kling (spicy ground meat with curry paste) and khao yam (rice salad).
