Phuket Festivals Focus on Local Food

Foodie travellers enjoying the culinary delights of Phuket are expected to flock to three must-visit events on the island this year. Three separate mini food festivals will be held in Phuket Town and Patong to promote Phuket City’s status as a UNESCO City of Gastronomy. The events, which are expected to attract a high number of visitors, will give both tourists and locals the chance to delve deeper into Phuket’s array of culinary offerings.

Kick starting the season of fantastic food in Phuket was an event at the Phuket Thaihua Museum on Krabi Road in Phuket Town. The event was incorporated into Chinese New Year celebrations on the island, and lasted from 21st – 23rd February.

The second event will be held at the Jungceylon shopping mall in Patong from 2nd – 4th March. The third and final event will be held at Limelight Avenue in Phuket Town from March 24th – 26th.

According to Phuket’s Governor Norraphat, the series of food-focussed events will showcase the diverse array of gastronomic treasures Phuket has to offer. “The Phuket Provincial Public Health Office is organising these events to make tourist – both Thais and foreigners – to be confident in food for which Phuket is famous for,” he said.

“The main things to consider are the raw ingredients, how the food is prepared and how the food is presented. Restaurants must provide clean and healthy food for customers. People are invited to taste delicious, clean and safe food, watch the performances and have fun with lots of activities at the events,” he said.

Each event will boast up to 30 individual food booths, in addition to a selection of exhibitions explaining the variety of cuisine in Phuket. There exhibitions will also showcase an introduction to the places that sell favourite local dishes, plus education sessions to teach entrepreneurs how to improve the quality of the food they’re serving.

Holidaymakers in Phuket have always been spoilt for choice in terms of the authentic Thai cuisine available – particularly when it comes to seafood dishes, thanks to the abundance of freshly caught produce. Guests staying in one of the island’s luxury private villas, with access to their own professional Thai chef, have a golden opportunity to sample an array of authentic Thai dishes.

In addition to Thai cuisine, chefs within Phuket’s upscale villas are able to prepare Indian, Chinese, Italian and French food to cater to visitors’ tastes. Guests also have the chance to adapt traditional Thai dishes to suit their own palates. For example, the spice level of classic curry dishes can be adapted to suit visitors who prefer milder curries.
