Chef Noble, who was a mastermind behind the kitchens of two-Michelin starred restaurant in the UK, is founder of Ori9in, Thailand’s first organic farm dedicated to the cultivation and enjoyment of gourmet-quality produce. The Chiang Mai farm-resort is a popular agro-tourism destination offering participatory tours and farm-fresh dining.

The event will be presented in a white menu format in which guests specify their preference of preparation time and dietary direction while the chefs select the actual foods used. Utilizing the day’s best available ingredients, Chef James and his team will prepare dishes that blend elements of cooked-to-order dining with the element of the unknown of Japanese omakase.

The Ori9in’s approach of sustainable, organic farming, “closed-circuit” sourcing and white menu format emphasizes on maintaining a low carbon-footprint and reducing food waste.

Chef James Noble will assume the flash residency at Banyan Tree Bangkok for this rare event from 11 – 13 December 2020 at Saffron restaurant.
