Marriott Bonvoy Revives the Timeless Traditions of Thai Cuisine with “Lost Recipes”

Talented chefs lovingly recreate forgotten dishes from a bygone era at hotels and resorts across the kingdom, including childhood favourites and ancient royal recipes

Marriott Bonvoy is reviving Thailand’s time-honoured culinary traditions with its new “Lost Recipes” series, which showcases a selection of highly authentic ancient dishes from all four corners of the kingdom.

Guests and diners at many of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of properties across Thailand, from the tropical shores of the south to the lush mountains of the north, can now savour long-lost recipes that have been reinvented by the hotels’ talented local chefs. Whether they are rediscovering the flavours of childhood or resurrecting menu items that once graced Thailand’s royal palaces, each Lost Recipe has been lovingly reimagined for the 21st Century using the finest local and seasonal ingredients.

Each chef has strived to use classical cooking methods combined with contemporary techniques to rekindle these exquisite dishes. From today until September 2022, 20 Marriott hotels and resorts in Thailand will offer at least one Lost Recipe at their restaurants.

Diners in Bangkok will be able to savour “Gaeng Rawang Neua”, an aromatic beef and turmeric curry at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, and “Pla Haeng Tang Mo” an ancient appetizer of dried fish with watermelon at Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel, while guests at Four Points by Sheraton Phuket Patong Beach Resort can choose to try “Gaeng Pae”, an authentic dish of slow-cooked goat with spices, and visitors to Sheraton Samui Resort  can savour “Mee See Chompu”, a vibrant bowl of pink noodles that was often found at temple fairs.

Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa has rediscovered “Aok Kai”, Isaan-style roasted chicken with Thai herbs, while Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa has recreated “Khao Yum”, a one-dish meal of steamed rice, pomelo, dried shrimp and coconut, and Courtyard by Marriott North Pattaya is serving “Rice Field Crab Larb”, a unique rural recipe made using crabs found in paddy fields. It is not only Thai food on the menu, however; Le Méridien Chiang Mai is reviving the timeless Italian dish of “Le Polpette del Contadino”, which was often served in Sicily on special occasions. 

This is just a small selection of the many Lost Recipes that are now ready to delight diners at Marriott’s hotels and resorts in Thailand. For the full list of participating properties, please see below.
