From 1 to 2 September foodies and gourmets won’t miss the “Phuket Tasty Fest 2018” which is to put the spotlights on Phuket’s delicacies and beyond
Organised by the Tourism of Thailand (TAT) Phuket Office, in collaboration with Phuket Province and Phuket City Municipality, the culinary event will take place at the 72nd Anniversary Queen Sirikit Park – also known as “Dragon Park” on Thalang Road- from 4PM to 10PM on September 1 and 2.
Throughout this two-day event, many different zones will be offering a wide array of food, from Phuket iconic dishes to signature dishes from 14 provinces across Thailand’s Southern Region, along with fresh seafood and many other culinary delights to suit every appetite, including fusion food from modern kitchens, halal food and a comprehensive range of desserts.
Meanwhile, the DIY – do it yourself – zone offers opportunities for food lovers to try a hand at cooking local Phuket dishes.
The two-day event will also feature cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs from the Iron Chef Thailand, cocktail making exhibition featuring Thailand’s champion bartenders, live music by Thai singers and bands, contemporary show by contestants from Thailand’s Got Talent. There’re also games and lucky draws.
Phuket is one of 18 cities worldwide -the first city in Thailand and Southeast Asia- that has been accredited by UNESCO in the Creative City category for its gastronomic delights. Phuket’s food culture will again be put in spotlight by the new Michelin Guide Bangkok, Phuket and Phang Nga 2019, to be launched later this year.
In line with the TAT’s responsible tourism policy, the TAT Phuket Office is encouraging visitors and shop owners to reduce plastic and foam usage. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own food containers.
