Blue Elephant Royal Thai Cuisine
Recently awarded a Michelin Plate in the Bangkok 2020 Michelin Guide, Blue Elephant is a long-standing 40-year-old icon in the Bangkok culinary scene. With restaurants and cooking schools all over the world, they are renowned for having only the best standards for Thai cuisine.
The Golden Duck’s brand new TOM YUM GOONG GOURMET MIX was created in collaboration with the inspiration and genius behind Blue Elephant, Chef Nooror. Along with all the snackers around the world.
Chef Nooror - Blue Elephant
Chef Nooror is recognised as one of Thailand’s top chefs and is the inspiration and genius behind the 40 year old Blue Elephant brand. We sought her advice and expertise in the final stages of assembly for this Tom Yum Goong snack. Passionate about the vibrance of Thai gastronomy and constantly innovating with food, she was exactly what we needed!
Chef Maui - The Golden Duck
As head chef of our R&D team, Maui creates our snacks from scratch, pairing real ingredients and building explosive flavours. The whole process of creation for this snack was an exciting and inspiring process for her, from taking our snackers’ suggestions to the kitchens, and of course, collaborating with a like-minded soul in what may be Asia’s best Tom Yum snack yet!
Three New Exciting Ingredients
LOTUS ROOT CRISPS
Crisp Lotus Roots bring a whole new dimension to the snack. Majestic looking and subtly sweet, they provide a nice, earthy flavour for the base of our Tom Yum snack.
Highly demanded from our voting campaign, and also following a huge craze in Thailand, comes lightly battered, baby Shrimp Chins, adding unbelievable umami and depth to our snack. A crucial ingredient of any Tom Yum Goong.
To complete the trio is everyone’s favourite Oyster Mushrooms, which are crunchy and balances out the tanginess and heat from this dish. Exactly like a good bowl of Tom Yum Goong!
The Great Snack Showdown
We asked avid snackers from around the world to help us decide what our next flavour should be. After 3 weeks, and between 3 well-loved dishes, the choice was made! Joining our line of incredible gourmet snacks is BANGKOK TOM YUM GOONG GOURMET MIX, created just for you.
