The Government of Chile chose Thailand as the first country to kick-start “Foods from Chile: The Bounty of Our Land Delivered to Your Table,” a campaign to promote the Latin American country’s enogastronomic offer in Asia and Latin America. The project was launched at SO Sofitel Bangkok with a business matching for Thai and Chilean companies, as well as cooking demonstrations with Chilean staple ingredients prepared in Thai and Chilean style.
Celebrity Thai chef Surakit “Ping” Khemkaew offered a menu using Chilean ingredients prepared in Thai-style. In turn, Chilean ambassador chef Pilar Rodriguez prepared traditional Chilean dishes with ingredients from her home country. Both menus were paired by Chilean ambassador sommelier Marcelo Pino with award-winning Chilean wines.
