Sam Rap Thai Institute, an international institute dedicated to promoting Thai food culture, was set up by Thai Fight Company and the Thai Studies Institute of Chulalongkorn University on October 1 this year with the aim of making Thai food, and not just Pad Thai and somtam, known all over the world.

Loved for its rich and bold taste, Thai food might be a favourite but but “local food wisdom” is not developed as it should be. The main purpose of the Sam Rap Thai Institute is to build up a collection of local materials and recipes and publicizing dishes through various activities including television cooking contests and local food festivals, which will be held both domestically and internationally throughout the year.

Sam Rap Thai Institute will also give out the “Siam Jarat” award to guarantee local food and restaurants using authentic recipes.
