Phuket Art Dinner: Dine on all-star chefs’ culinary interpretations of modern art

PHUKET: Ever wondered what Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa or any piece of modern art might taste like – or at least a gastronomic interpretation?

Take your chances this Saturday at 7pm by joining the Think Design Art Dinner at Nikki Beach Club, where six of Thailand’s top chefs will be collaborating to create dishes that embody six pieces of modern art by internationally known Vietnamese and Japanese artists.

“It’s the first time we’ve done an all-star panel like this. In the past, it’s been one chef for the whole dinner. This time, we have six – each interpreting a single piece of art,” Michael Earle, editor in chief of Think Design, told the Phuket Gazette.

For about four years, Think Design as been hosting regular art dinners to help kick-start an art culture on the island.

“People come here, and there are beaches and the Bangla Road scene, but there is a lack of culture. They leave the island now and again to go to Hong Kong, Singapore or Bangkok for the arts. For the last few years, we have been trying to figure out how to create a little more culture on Phuket,” Michael said.
