Trailing Cuisine’s Culture
A Chef’s Tour started from a passionate chef who also happens to be a licensed tour guide named Nutth. A Bangkok native, he knows the city like the back of his hand and as a chef, he appreciates the joy a delicious dish brings. A Chef’s Tour was created with the goal to introduce culinary gems hidden in the City of Angels, from her backstreets and back alleys catering to food enthusiasts and adventure seekers. Most of all, they’re meant to be tours that chefs themselves can enjoy. During the four and half hour tour, guests can expect 17 different dishes, snacks, and drinks as well as interacting with locals. They may make their acquaintance with a vendor who still makes noodles by hand for old-style dishes of steamed shrimp noodles. The bowl gets topped with juicy and tender pork slices, squid and black bean sauce and places like these have been in business for over 60 years. Get the local experience and grab colourful plastic stolls that famed Jek Pui curry stall whose traditional doorways become Insta-worthy spots.
A Chef’s Tour is not just another run-of-the-mill food tour that has been springing up in tourist spots all over the world. If anything, it hopes to differentiate itself by taking food lovers off the beaten track to savour authentic tastes and delve in the culture and history behind each food or vendor’s business. Its goal is not just to deliver a palate-pleasing experience, but also to unveil interesting stories, as well as offer a glimpse into local people’s lives through the culinary tour. Already known for their street-wise style and true knowledge in the art of food and cooking, the team behind A Chef’s Tour has spent days and hours following the foodie path and selecting only the best, the most delicious, interesting, and hygienic for the tour.
The unique eating trails featured on A Chef’s Tour are organised by local knowledge and expertise from the team’s circles of chefs, passionate home cooks, and foodies. Lasting about 4 hours, each tour delivers a true experience to food aficionados amidst street vibes, with 8 guests at maximum per one tour to ensure a rounded experience. What’s even more special about A Chef’s Toru is that it is customised, basing itself on local surroundings. That’s why it’s not surprising to see A Chef’s Tour in Chiang Mai which highlights authentic Northern cuisine. Since its launch, A Chef’s Tour has branched out to Phuket, Chiang Mai, then further abroad to India in popular towns like Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi. The tour plans to cultivate a bigger foodie experience in Asia in 2019, with their sights set on cities such as Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Singapore and many more. achefstour.com
