MasterChef UK Finalist at Anantara Chef Nawamin

Celebrity Chef and MasterChef UK Finalist at Anantara Mai Khao

Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas, Emirates Airline, Bangkok Airways and Wine Dee Dee Group are thrilled to be hosting Thailand’s very own Chef Nawamin Pinpathomrat for two nights of private dining and one cooking class in October. Chef Nawamin gained international celebrity when he became a finalist in the 2018 season of MasterChef UK with his uniquely Thai dishes.

A qualified medical doctor studying and conducting research at Oxford, it was Nawamin’s passion for cooking that brought him to the MasterChef kitchen. His “crab dance” caught everyone’s eye, but his crab curry enthralled the judge’s taste buds. Chef Nawamin now brings his delightful take on Thai flavours to Anantara Mai Khao. Anantara Mai Khao’s La Sala, featuring southern Thai cuisine, is the perfect venue to showcase Chef Nawamin’s specialities born from his experiences cooking with his grandmother in southern Thailand.

On Friday, 19 October, and Saturday, 20 October, guests can savour a five-course private dinner meticulously crafted by Chef Nawamin. Diners will discover the flavours that inspire these whimsical names: Grandma’s Garden (beef carpaccio and burnt aubergine salad), Wedding Ring (pan-seared scallops, oysters, and shimeji mushrooms), Anatomy of Crab (crab prepared four ways), Land of Smiles (Macadamia-encrusted sea bass), Swan Lake (sticky rice with Thai coconut custard).
