This week, we catch up with inspiring restaurateur and passionate organic farmer Palisa Anderson and begin to understand why her family’s chain of Thai restaurants are a not only a chef’s favourite, but considered some of the best in the world. Chat Thai, Assamm & Boon Café is no ordinary Thai. Their contribution to serving up authentic Thai food with local ingredients, many of which they grow themselves, even garnered the attention of Noma who chose Chat Thai to cook their last staff meal following their 12 week pop up in Sydney. Palisa lets us raid her fridge and then takes us on a tour of her farm before introducing us to her favourite food destination in Byron Bay - it’s a local gem and really special.
We also put globally respected food authority and TV star, Matt Preston, Under the The Pass Grill to find out where the Masterchef host and World’s 50 Best Restaurants judge eats when he’spaying and what he really thinks about social media.
