Chef Riley Sanders, from Michelin-starred CanvasBangkok, will helm the first in a special dinner series called Bangkok Culinary Greats by S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, on 9-10 October. The dinner will be held at the Anantara Layan PhuketResort and opens a series of residences that are designed to showcase the bets of Thailand’s culinary talent, while breathing positivity into the hospitality sector in the country.
Originally from Texas, Sanders’ gastronomic curiosity saw him travel all over the world as he hunted down new flavours and ingredients at local markets and street food stalls. He has worked under some notable award-winning chefs during his career, including James Beard Award winners Tyson Cole and Paul Qui of Uchi and Uchiko in Austin, and three-Michelin-starred chef Laurent Gras, formerly of L20 in Chicago and Saison in San Francisco.
Sanders visited over 30 countries as a chef on a private yacht, but he chose to settle in Bangkok where, at the helm of Canvas Bangkok, he attained a Michelin star after two years of opening. Sanders draws on the myriad of local flavours and the inspiration of the city of Bangkok for his refined and ingredient-driven cuisine.
Guests at the first Bangkok Culinary Greatsby S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna can enjoy a 6-course menu by chef Riley Sanders, including dishes such as Canvas’s signature bread made from toasted red rice, and smoked dry-aged duck from Khao Yai. There will also be Thai wagyu top sirloin from Mukdahan, sturgeon from Hua Hin, and a dessert made with Lady Finger bananas.
Ahead of the virtual dining experience he’s hosting in celebration of the EE BAFTAs 2021 in partnership with S.Pellegrino, two-Michelin-starred chef Claude Bosi spoke with Fine Dining Lovers about meat, lockdowns and his favourite English pudding.
