Putting Baan Unrak on the Vegan Foodie Trail with Signature Dishes.
In October 2019 we welcomed very special people from all over the world to Baan Unrak Restaurant and Cafè.
A Raw Vegan Chef, her name is Jaguar Kukulcan, and she came all the way from New Zealand to help us make delicious and nutritious signature dressings and sauces for our dishes, while also introducing new gems into our menu! It’s Jaguar’s passion to create nutrient, dense and delicious vegan food with a little extra helping of Love (her secret ingredient).
We all certainly felt her love while she was here!
For Jaguar, preparing food for someone is her love made visible… Deliciously visible!
For 3 weeks, Jaguar worked with us in our kitchen, teaching us how simple, locally-grown ingredients can be turned into mouth-watering dressings and sauces to complement our dishes. Every day, we shared a different Baan Unrak dish together, trying all the sauces so that we can confidently recommend the best pairings to our guests.
During her stay, Jaguar was inseparable from Laura, a volunteer from Ireland who’s been coaching the team at our restaurant for the past 3 months, sponsored by Sunline Foundation from Singapore.
Jaguar’s stay coincided with “A Journey Back Home”. All of us at Baan Unrak Restaurant were so proud to support the conference with our delicious food and Jaguar’s new signature dressings and sauces. The feedback was better than we could ever have hoped for, it makes us so proud and confident for the future. One of the guests, Khun Rainjita even stayed behind to learn more from Jaguar. She was so impressed!
On Jaguar’s last day, we thanked her for everything she had taught us in her short time here. From Jaguar we also learned how to make cheese, ice cream, granola and yoghurt… the vegan way.
Come and try it yourself!
Our best kept secret: mango purée, a dollop of rich cashew nut yoghurt, topped with mango chunks and a sprinkling of granola.
Jaguar will be back in 2020 for more.
Our New Menu… The Making Of
All the new dishes are available at the restaurant and will be on our new menu soon! Our long term Italian volunteer Francesco is doing photoshoots of the food (and eating it all afterwards!) so that each dish can be shown “true to life” on our menu and to promote us on social media.
Below, a teaser from the breakfast shoot.
And a Pizza Party!
