Chef Songpol Ponkaew will present the unique merging between the influences in Northern Thailand from Ciang Mai. He will showcase the buffet creation including yum hua phee or banana blossom salad with poached prawn, hot and sour soup with chicken and banana blossom, and coconut curry noodle soup with chicken.
