Chef Renu, along with Saffron Thai Cuisine’s Head Chef, Chef Tip, will be working side by side to curate special menus that showcase Bangkok’s famous street food, as well as a special 6-course set menu. The festival is to take place on 27, 28 and 29 October – during the first two days, Saffron is set to transport you to the most famous street food stalls of Bangkok with five different stations serving popular grills, salads, mains, desserts and more. On the last day, Chef Renu will be preparing a 6-course set menu that showcases Royal Thai flavours in a unique and contemporary way.

Chef Renu learnt to cook at an early age from her mother who owns a small restaurant in her hometown. Being exposed to the culinary world since childhood, she decided right from the outset that one day she was going to become a chef.

Chef Renu has had several opportunities to demonstrate her excellent culinary skills. In addition to holding regular events at the many Banyan Tree hotels and resorts around the world, where Saffron has now a presence with 14 restaurants in eight different countries spanning from Asia to Africa, the Middle East and all the way to the far-flung Americas, she has also been invited as a guest chef to join several gastronomic promotions internationally, such as at the Lotte and Sheraton Hotels in Korea; Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia; Oberoi Hotels in India; Hotel Traube Tonbach in Germany; Schwarzwaldstube (3 Michelin Star) in Germany and Condé Nast in New York City, to name a few.
