MICHELIN Guide Thailand, in partnership with the Department of Intellectual Property and in collaborative support from the Tourism Authority of Thailand present a mini-documentary featuring Chef Chalee Kader of a 2022 MICHELIN Bib Gourmand recipient 100 Mahaseth and MICHELIN-recommended Wana Yook and Chef David Hartwig of one-MICHELIN-Starred IGNIV Bangkok who go on a journey to learn about what the tasty Geographical Indication (GI) of the rich Northeastern Thailand are famous for.

Isan-food enthusiast Kader and curious yet fermented fish wary Swiss chef Hartwig venture into Thailand’s largest region of Thailand, and uncharted territory for them. They discover the culinary gems held dear by the people from these Northeastern provinces: Buriram, Sisaket, and Sakon Nakhon, delving into delectable local treasures that are Geographical Indication (GI) products, such as Buriram Volcanic Soil Jasmine Rice, Sisaket Shallots and Sisaket Garlic, as well as the popular Pon Yang Kham Beef.

Watch these chefs discuss their innovative thought processes as they transform traditional, local favourite ingredients into unique upscale dining dishes.
