Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

When the thai con­sulate gen­eral hosted an af­ter­noon at the Moon Thai Restau­rant to pro­mote knowl­edge of the in­gre­di­ents and steps in­volved in au­then­tic Thai cook­ing, the heads of a num­ber of other con­sulates rolled up their sleeves and got work­ing in the kitchen, in­clud­ing US Con­sul Gen­eral Clif­ford Hart and his In­dian coun­ter­part, Prashant Agrawal. With Thai Con­sul Gen­eral Aroon Jivasakapimas and more than a dozen other “chefs-in-train­ing”, they learned how to make three tra­di­tional Thai dishes—prawn pad Thai, red curry with roasted duck and fresh fruit, and seafood dumplings—un­der the in­struc­tion of group ex­ec­u­tive chef Viboon Harnskunwat. The ac­tiv­ity had all the stu­dents on their feet peel­ing, chop­ping and stir­ring, ea­ger to win the trophy for best dish. The fun af­ter­noon in She­ung Wan be­gan with a cock­tail ses­sion so the guests could get to know each other be­fore they were split into groups to pre­pare their dishes. Once the cook­ing class was over, the par­tic­i­pants en­joyed a de­li­cious mango sticky rice dessert made by Viboon while he judged ev­ery­one’s dishes. After bel­lies were filled, ev­ery­one was a win­ner!
