The much-anticipated weekend event at Banyan Tree Phuket luxury hotel offers food enthusiasts an opportunity to savour the style of tropical cuisine that made him famous, before Chef Kuruvita embraced his new roles as TV presenter, author, industry speaker and restaurant consultant.

His appearance at the Phuket resort comes right on the heels of the previous “Guest chef series” event starring Thailand’s first Lady Michelin-star chef, Khun Pom, from her acclaimed restaurant Saneh Jaan in Bangkok.

Future Banyan Tree Phuket culinary “Stars” in 2018 will see the arrival of a talented Japanese guest chef, as well as a 2-Michelin-star chef from Barcelona.

The weekend’s highlight also includes, the Laguna Phuket Food & Music Festival, another one of Laguna’s community events for children and adults, tourists and locals.

All visitors will be treated to a wide selection of gourmet food booths from local restaurants and a picnic area for listening to the concert performances.

The event will also bring together live cooking performances as well as evening acts from prominent Thai rock bands Bodyslam and Sweet Mullet, drawing thousands of spectators on the Friday evening to raise money for the Phuket Panyanukul School for children with special needs.

The festival’s live acts will continue on Saturday from 4pm onwards, featuring famous Russian pianist and opera singer Ivan Sharapov, followed by the Phuket-based Black ’n’ Blue band.
