Photos From L.A.'s First Thai Food Festival At Paramount Pictures
This Sunday marked the first official Thai Food Festival in L.A., and the event was a big success. Organized by the Thai Trade Center in Los Angeles and its presenting partners, the fest was hosted at the Paramount Studios lots in Hollywood. Chefs in attendance included organizer and Culinary Ambassador to Thailand Jet Tila, Sang Yoon of Lukshon, Susan Feniger of Street, Curtis Stone of Top Chef Masters, David Lefevre, and legendary Andy Ricker of Pok Pok.
The goal of the festival was to expose eager eaters to lesser known Thai dishes like khao soi and Issan laabs. There were also exotic fruit stations with mangosteens and durian, and a stunning fruit carving display where watermelons were turned into stunning floral bouquets. You can check out photos of the event here.
