Food Stylist magazine, June 2007 

According to the first year anniversary of “Food Stylist” , I have been invited to write a column “Food design : Creativity in Food” for this magazine in order to introduce the concept of food design and change the perception that it is not just only a decoration on the plate. The information is gathered from books, magazines, website and so on that I have been collected and what I have seen while I was at Fabrica. It’s gonna be like a year (12 issue or a bit more) series so…. see you on the shelf then.

I was assigned by The Mall department store to design a Thai coconut ice cream collection for this Thai coconut event called “ร้อยเรื่องราวมะพร้าวไทย” taken place at The Mall Bang Kapi and The Mall Bang Kae on 31st May to 6th June 2007.

Coconut ice cream does exist in this world a long time ago, especially “I-tim Ka-Ti “, a traditional Thai coconut milk ice cream one. However… “Thai dessert ice cream” doesn’t!

Coconut is the main ingredients of Thai cuisine and dessert, varying in so many methods. For this event, I’ve created three flavours of “Thai dessert ice cream” using coconut in three styles – coconut cream (Kanomburng ice cream), sweeten scraped coconut meat (Kanomsodsai ice cream) and coconut milk (Fakthong Kangbuod ice cream).

Kanomburng

Kanomburng ขนมเบื้อง, a Thai cryspy crepe, is always served with sweet coconut cream mix and Foi Thing ฝอยทอง or can be occasionally decorated with dried plum and raisin.

Kanomsodsai ขนมสอดไส้, another Thai dessert using the coconut as a filling and body. The filling is made of sweet scraped coconut meat, aroma with the Thai fragrant candle. The body is made of coconut milk, flour and a pinch of salt. It’s always wrapped with banana leaves which create a particular packaging for this simple Thai sweet. (I use coconut leaves instead of banana one since it is a coconut event.)

Fakthongkangbuod

I have created this Fakthong Kangbuod ice cream layered with cryspy pumpkin, whipping cream, steamed pumpkin, topped with coconut milk and garnished with mint leaves. The cryspy pumpkin and the steamed one will give a soft and crunchy texture in itself.

If anybody is happened to pass by The Mall Bang Kapi or The Mall Bang Kae, please do not hesitate to try my “Thai coconut dessert ice cream collection” which made especially just only for this Thai coconut event.

Pechakucha night#3

Last week (26th May 2007) I was invited by Khun Surat “try to be nice” to present my ice cream design works at this creative event called “Pechakucha night, free Bangkok creativity” at Playground! inspiration store, Thong Lor as one of the 17 speakers. Although it’s just only the third time in Bangkok, it has been taken place in so many countries a long time ago, Tokyo is the first city in 2003, originally devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa). The name derives from a Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit-chat”). 

A Pecha Kucha night is an event format in which presenters show a slideshow of 20 images, each of which is shown for 20 seconds — giving a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds and the event starts at 20:20 pm. Each event usually has 20 presenters. Presenters (and much of the audience) are usually from the design, architecture, photography, art and creative fields.

Firstly I felt it’s plenty of time to explain the concept of each image within 20 second. By contrast, I was quite exhaust to hurry up explaining everything in this short moment. However I still feel happy to participate in such a good event where gather all the works, opinions or whatever from so many persons to inspire each other. Speakers to speakers, speakers to the audiences and perhaps… audiences to audiences if they are inspired and become the speakers for the next time.

Hopefully this ball will keep rolling and rolling as a cycle like this in the future and won’t end up just only on the 3rd time….
