Eating is the most important activity for humans, both individually and socially. Food is not only necessary to maintain survival but also reflects society and culture.
With that in mind, the Jim Thompson Art Center presents "Kin-Doo-Di!", a discussion which will encourage people to eat with the eyes and know with the tongue. It will take place at its William Warren Library on Saturday from 2pm to 4pm.
Speakers will be Krit Lualamai, Panu Boonpipattanapong and Kingkorn Narinthornkul na Ayudthaya.
They are all keen on food. Krit is a poet and writer, who is interested in inventing recipes with ingredients that are mostly overlooked in terms of both taste and nutritional qualities. Many times he creates superb and tasty dishes using vegetables picked from around the home or basic ingredients familiar to Thai kitchens. Krit has collected his eye-delighting and tongue-pleasing dishes in his book Aroi Thai Krau.
Panu is recognised as a writer who works with design art and pop culture in films. He writes a monthly review column, Open Your Eyes, for Flimmax magazine.
A director of the BioThai Foundation, Kingkorn works closely with the issues regarding food security and bio-diversity. She will broaden the audience's knowledge with up-to-date information about food security.
There is no admission charge.
The art centre is on Soi Kasemsan 2, off Rama I Road. Call 02-612-6741, 080-117-8911 or email email@example.com.
