Banyan Tree Bangkok to host ‘Culinary Farmer’ Chef James Noble for exclusive pop-up

Banyan Tree Bangkok has announced an exclusive pop-up restaurant event featuring the culinary talents of Chef James Noble, renowned for his work in organic farming and agro tourism as well as his much acclaimed cooking.

Chef Noble, who was a mastermind behind the kitchens of two-Michelin starred restaurants in the UK, is founder of Ori9in, Thailand’s first organic farm dedicated to the cultivation and enjoyment of gourmet-quality produce. The Chiang Mai farm-resort is a popular agro-tourism destination offering participatory tours and farm-fresh dining.

The event will be presented in a white menu format in which guests specify their preference of preparation time and dietary direction while the chefs select the actual foods used. Utilising the day’s best available ingredients, Chef Noble and his team will prepare dishes that blend elements of cooked-to-order dining with the element of the unknown of Japanese omakase.

The Ori9in approach of sustainable, organic farming, “closed circuit” sourcing and white menu format emphasises on maintaining a low carbon-footprint and reducing food waste.

Chef James Noble will assume the flash residency at Banyan Tree Bangkok for this rare event from 11 to 13 December 2020 at Saffron restaurant.

The dining package of THB5,999 includes

– Dining experience for 2 persons

– One night accommodation in Horizon room at Banyan Tree Bangkok (room only)

– Complimentary admission to Ori9in Farm valid for one year for two persons
