Taste the Artisan Party Series 1 will be held at VIVIN Grocery in Ekkamai Complex, where VIVIN, local gourmet and fine food product suppliers, have opened up their first stand-alone grocery store.

VIVIN first began as a pop up store at the Bangkok Farmers Market in 2014 selling only whole foie-gras terrine, a recipe from the grandmother of co-owner Nicolas Vivin, who added his own twist to the equation. Some of those twists were to incorporate local products into the foie gras, such as infusing the Phuket-based rum, Chalong Bay Rum or strawberries from Chiang Mai.

VIVIN has greatly extended their range, which focuses on local and artisanal products, growing the range from the single foie gras whole duck terrine to a variety of cow and goat cheeses from Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, and jam and chutneys made from local organic fruits. The grocery also provides a butchery of local beef and chicken along with cold cuts.
