Through TEDx talks, TV appearances and, above all, amazing food, chef Phanuphon “Black” Bulsuwan, 35, has forged a reputation as a master of fermentation techniques and champion of sustainable causes. No surprise, then, that some of Bangkok’s top restaurants send their trainees up to his six-year-old restaurant in Chiang Mai, Blackitch Artisan Kitchen.

This Apr 5, don’t miss chef Black when he cook’s at Siwilai City Club at Bangkok’s Central Embassy, in the latest edition of the club’s quarterly “Kitchen Takeover” series.

A B1,500+ per person, he will be preparing a four-course dinner under the concept “Northern and Zero Waste.” Seasonal northern ingredients will star in every cause, but beyond that chef Black’s food doesn’t stick to rules.

Hyper-local, hyper-seasonal ingredients twinned with expert curing methods draw on family experience (makers of shrimp paste, fish sauce and vinegar in Rayong), countless research trips to Japan and local know-how.

Siwilai City Club takes over the open-air deck on level 5 of Central Embassy shopping mall, flanked either side by a suite of restaurants and bars. Their last “Kitchen Takeover” was a must-book event in partnership with Hong Kong’s Yardbird yakitori specialist

We expect reservations will be essential this time around, too. Call 02-160-5631 or Line message @siwilaicityclub.
