Barn Thai is tapping into the growing appetite for Thai fare and regional flavours by launching a food promotion throughout month of December and into January, offering authentic regional Thai food, reformulating the mass perception of emblematic Thai food. Despite a border away, this neighbour country has so much more to offer when it comes to the food instead of the usual forecast of strong, robust, punchy-flavour of spicy and tangy sour.
Barn Thai held their press launch for this Food Promotion from the 4 regions of Thailand (Southern, Northern, Northeastern, and Central Region) on Wednesday 10th December 2014, and showcases the best of 4 regions with a narrative guide to each dish by Executive Thai Chef.

Thailand is divided into four regions, each with their own geographic characteristic reflecting the differences in culinary alongside with availability of ingredients and differences in weather locations. Each region reigns to their own distinct cuisine, some not even found in Bangkok itself. This food promotion is that good opportunity to understand the many types of cooking method in each region and how each relates to the culture and heritage of Thailand, and expanding knowledge through each distinct dish.
