Beyond pad Thai: a look at the collaborative dinner between Yours Truly and Kiin Kiin’s Kiki Sontiyart

Beyond pad Thai: a look at the collaborative dinner between Yours Truly and Kiin Kiin’s Kiki Sontiyart

On Wednesday, Yours Truly hosted the inaugural run of Common Ground, a new dinner series that sees the Ossington restaurant hosting local and international guest chefs for collaborative meals (much like Chantecler’s Monday’s Dinner series). Chef Jeff Claudio tells us, “It gives us the chance to learn and understand someone else’s cuisine and inspire each other with new flavours and ideas.” This first edition featured Thai chef Kiki Sontiyart, a Bangkok native who moved to Toronto at the age of 15 and eventually found herself in Copenhagen staging at Noma (which is how she met Claudio). She now works at Copenhagen’s Kiin Kiin, the only Thai restaurant in the world with a Michelin star.

With staff from Khao San Road and Salad King in attendance, the Thai-inspired dinner featured a menu of Sontiyart’s creation that was meant to prove that Thai food is, as she told us, “much more than red curry or pad Thai—the flavours are vibrant, bright, clean.” From northern-inspired dishes to old-school ’70s staples, here’s how the meal went down »
