A platonic relationship that has spanned over 14 years for Chef Justamas “Som” Theantae and Chef Monthep “Thep” Kamolsilp began with meetings at culinary training school in Bangkok, proceeded through to working at five-star hotels in Thailand, and on to travelling the world together by luxury cruise where they cooked alongside some of the greatest chefs of multiple-starred Michelin restaurants.
After going their separate ways socially and professionally to focus on developing their skills, since 2018 (Taan) and 2019 (Karmakamet Conveyance) the two chefs have been at the helm and in charge of their own fine restaurants in Bangkok.
They thought this would be a good time to cook together again, for a first-time collaboration featuring the both of them, and that’s why “Friendship – A Reunion of Tastes” will be featured on 20th March at Karmakamet Conveyance.
French cuisine was at the core of their training and work-life, and where they particularly excelled before adopting Asian flavours into their restaurant menu concepts. This collaborative menu will reflect their respective French cuisine skills, whilst incorporating locally grown produce with dishes that highlight French and Asian techniques.
Some of the dishes you will find on the special menu are the poached oyster, burnt stingy beans, green chilli and nut with brown butter veloute. A chestnut soup will be prepared with onion duck ball and shallot mousse. A classic French dish but with a distinct Asian twist will bring forth deep-fried coated cricket, smoked frog’s legs, parsley ginger and a water bug emulsion. Marinated eel with hot oil tea-tare sauce, lotus stems, avocado and lotus root will be another coming together of French technique and flavours of the East. Marinated pigeon with grilled corn, okra, Mexican kale puree, pickled clam and pink pepper jus draws heavily on their luxury cruise days.
