A Trip to Thailand with Chef Benz
Thai food is complex, exciting and everyone's favourite food to eat. Join Chef Benz for one of the most world-famous Soneva experiences only at Magazine St. Kitchen!
Since 1995, husband-wife Sonu and Eva have built one of the most playful high-luxury brands around the world. Chef Benz has a history with Soneva that goes right to the source; 15 years ago, Sonu and Eva stopped at a cafe in rural Thailand for directions. They found Khun Benz who they instantly knew was special and invited her to join the Soneva family. Benz worked at Soneva Fushi for 10 years before returning to Thailand, opening her restaurant at Soneva Kiri. Chef Benz’s menu changes daily depending on what fresh fish and meats can be had at the market and what is growing in Soneva Kiri’s extensive gardens. The flavours are complex and hearty and very, very Thai.
Her gourmet Thai restaurant is one of the most world-famous Soneva experiences and her fame has spread far – garnering acclaim from restaurant critics and celebrities.
"Is there a meal that sticks out as the most memorable? There’s a restaurant on Koh Kood Island in Thailand called Benz’s. You get on a boat and go up a river to get there. It is the most exquisite, spicy Thai food I’ve ever had. The flavours were incredible."
