A spotlight on Chef Num

WATCH: FULL FILM

From Udon Thani, a provincial city in northeast Thailand, Chef Num finds himself most at home in the forest.

An advocate of hyperlocal and seasonal foods, Num retains connections to the community and culture through its produce and suppliers. From the intimate surrounds of his celebrated restaurant, Samuay & Sons, Num explains his process for creating edible stories that trace the local history of the region he calls home while Perm, one of Num’s greatest supporters, explains how Wonderfruit festival showcases the work of chefs like Num in creating an annual experience involving more than just music.
