60 socially distanced diners. 7 courses from a Michelin-starred kitchen. A full team of delivery drivers. And no single-use packaging. Friday was all about Fruitfull Lockdown: Re-eating Thai food with bo.lan.
From 7pm on Friday 24 April, Fruitfull’s very first interactive dinner party was streamed into 30 households across Bangkok—all in support of Covid Relief. Paired to a 7-course, progressive menu served in traditional Thai pinto carry containers, the live stream took diners on a journey from the kitchen to the farm and uncovered the full story of food.
Fruitfull is our sister project, connecting food with the planet to create new ways to enjoy eating. Discover more of the experiences we’re creating with Fruitfull here.
