Gourmet Theatre debuts a groundbreaking culinary experience in Bangkok with Chef’s Table on the Move at The Food School, a progressive culinary institution situated near Samyan Market. This innovative concept brings together acclaimed chefs from Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, alongside top mixologists, for an immersive evening of gastronomic exploration across three floors.

Originally launched in Hong Kong in 2020, Gourmet Theatre redefines traditional dining by transforming unexpected spaces into vibrant culinary destinations. Bangkok’s thriving culinary scene and access to premium ingredients make it an ideal host for Gourmet Theatre’s first overseas event, with The Food School serving as the perfect venue partner.

At the heart of Gourmet Theatre lies A GastroNOM and Beyond, an exclusive event offering two distinct experiences on the same night. Guests can choose from two ticket options, each offering a curated lineup of chefs and bars, promising a diverse range of culinary delights and libations. With four- and six-hand collaborations, signature dishes, and bar pop-ups, diners will embark on a culinary journey spanning five stations, indulging in a mix-and-match tasting menu showcasing the best of Asian cuisine and mixology.


Gourmet Theatre Stage #1 unites Thai chefs Weerawat “Num” Triyasenawat (Samuay & Sons, Udon Thani) and Phanuphon “Black” Bulsuwan (Blackitch Artisan Kitchen, Chiang Mai) for a four-hands experience. The other highlight falls onto an unique six-hands collaboration between Thai chefs Paisarn Cheewinsiriwat and Chef Kanyarat “Jib” Thanomseang (Kaen, Khon Kaen) and Chef Tam Kwok Fung (Chef Tam’s Seasons, Macau; Black Pearl Restaurant Guide Chef of the Year 2023). Apart from the collaborations, Barry Quek (Whey, Hong Kong; 1 Michelin star) will man a station by himself, putting the spotlight on his Singapore-inspired European dishes.

Between the fine dining experience, guests’ journeys include cocktail stations hosted by award-winning Changsha’s CMYK (Best New Bar of the Year in DRiNK Award 2023) and Bangkok’s Bar Us (Asia’s 50 Best Discovery).


Stage #2, located on the third floor of The Food School, features four rooms dedicated to dining and one special sake room. Fresh off receiving Michelin accolades, Bangkok-based chefs Chudaree “Tam” Debhakam (Baan Tepa, 2 Michelin stars) and Chalee Kader (Wana.Yook, 1 Michelin star) will oversee their own food stations.

Meanwhile, some of Asia’s most exciting culinary figures will team up for one-off collaborations. Ryogo Tahara (logy, Taipei; 2 Michelin stars) and May Chow (Little Bao, Hong Kong; Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants’ Best Female Chef 2017) will partner for their first-ever four-hands experience, while Susumu Shimizu (Denkushiflori) and Alex Peng (Akame, Taiwan; Asia’s 50 Best Discovery) will join forces for dishes that unite their expertise in French, Japanese and Indigenous Taiwanese cuisines.

Elliot Faber, Hong Kong’s pioneering sake advocate – and a recipient of the exclusive ‘Sake Samurai’ award – will partner with Err Rustic Thai, the rustic-casual outpost of celebrity chefs Dylan Jones and Duangporn “Bo” Songvisava. Expect a one-of-a-kind pairing of Faber’s select sakes with their rustic, full-flavoured Thai snacks.

Gourmet Theatre emphasizes seasonality, innovation, and sustainable sourcing practices, aligning with the ethos of The Food School. This partnership aims to foster meaningful conversations about food and sustainability while celebrating culinary excellence and local ingredients.
