Being quarantined at home in these COVID-19 times doesn’t mean having to forego gourmet meals from your favorite Michelin-starred restaurants. Stay-at-home dining now gets a boost with meals that combine a one-of-a-kind chef’s table experience with an interactive program on live stream.
Event organiser Scratch First (who's behind Wonderfruit) and well-known food writer and influencer Perm Paitayawat team up to offer Fruitfull, a series of dining events that ensure the city’s gastronomes don’t miss out while they’re on self-isolation. Its first dining series, Lockdown, brings multi-course meals curated by some of the world’s most renowned chefs straight to your homes. These meals are complemented by an interactive live streaming session that includes personalized messages from the chefs themselves and various entertainment programs.
The first edition of Lockdown will kick off on 24 April at 19:00 with a special seven-course dinner (B3,000 for two) by Chef Duangporn “Bo” Songvisava and Chef Dylan Jones of Bo.lan. As you tuck into your meal, you can also take in live cooking demonstrations, a Q&A sessions with the chefs and a live session by DJ Maft Sai.
The next dinner will take place on 8 May, and will offer party-perfect hampers designed by Garima Arora from local favorite Gaa, Jeremy Chan of one Michelin-starred West-African restaurant Ikoyi in London, and Kristian Baumann of the renowned Restaurant 108 in Copenhagen (B3,900 for 2 persons with drinks included/B6,500 for premium option). The rest of the series will see innovative Japanese bento boxes delivered by Chef Yusuke Takada from two Michelin-starred La Cime in Osaka (15 May), and a mash-up of ancient Thai and Korean fare by Chef Prin Polsuk of Sumrub for Thai and Chef Cho Hee-sook of Hansikgonggan in Seoul (22 May).
Proceeds of Lockdown will go to support Covid Relief, a local organization that aims to provide food and other essentials to the elderly and the impoverished during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can purchase your tickets from here.
