The Royal Thai Consulate-General in Dubai hosted a Thai cooking competition at the Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management (EAHM), Dubai. The 'Art of Thai Culinary 2019' event was presided over by H.E. Waravuth Pouapinya, Ambassador of Thailand to the UAE and Mr Chairat Sirivat, Consul-General of Thailand to Dubai. The event aims to increase awareness and understanding of the Thai culinary scene.

The traditional Thai dish of "Lon Goong" (shrimp in coconut milk relish), and the hugely popular Thai dessert (CNN's world's 50 best desserts) "Tab Tim Grob" (water chestnuts in sweetened coconut milk) were chosen for 12 Thai chefs from 12 Thai restaurants across Dubai to cook whilst competing to create the best dishes. The contestants were judged by Thai government officials based in the UAE, presidents of the Thai Professional Culinary Club in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Thai food experts from the Thai Catering Department, Thai Airways International, PCL and the UAE, and media representatives.

Leading food bloggers and media in partnership with Tourism Authority of Thailand's Middle East office will also review the restaurants of the winning chefs for each dish.
