Lanna, or Northern, food culture in Thailand exists as a result of the blending of different eras and local ethnics groups, including migrants from China, Laos, and Myanmar. This cultural commingling resulted in what we classify today as Northern Thai cuisine.
Notable features of Lanna cuisine include a tendency toward tamarind over lime for tartness, little use of coconut milk, a penchant for bold spices and herbs, and the use of fermented soy beans.
The Supper Club
Inspired by my travels in the region and the time graciously imparted by locals to teach me local dishes, this wholly vegan supper club is designed to showcase some of my favourite Northern Thai foods.
This supper club runs in Beckton, East London, in my home. Come along with a bottle of wine or two and try some vegan Lanna foods.
