About the Adventure
Join us for a restorative & relaxing Adventure through the beautiful, exotic country of Thailand with world renowned chef, Jean Christian Jury, as he immerses us in the delicious Thai cuisine that helped inspire his book, Vegan: The Cookbook.
For nearly 10 years Jean Christian Jury has been one of the top names in vegan cooking. In 2007 he opened La Mano Verde in Berlin, a restaurant that aimed to show diners that a vegan menu could be just as alluring and satisfying as a meat filled offering. La Mano Verde quickly became one of the top 10 restaurants in Berlin and was met with international acclaim from the travelers who would make their way to Germany just to try Jean Christian’s decadent plant-based meals. Vegan: The Cookbook is filled with these recipes and so much more; after closing La Mano Verde, Jean Christian visited over 100 countries to meet the master chefs of the world and discover new ingredients & methods of cooking to included in his comprehensive guide to vegan cooking.
On this sensational Adventure, you will get to experience one of Jean Christian’s dearest countries: Thailand. Here, among exotic flavors and the best street food in the world, guests will be given the chance to rejuvenate their minds and bodies as they embrace the Thai culture.
Beginning in Bangkok, Adventurers will start their trip staying at the beautiful Avani Riverside Hotel, taking in a panoramic view of the city. Before jetting North to Sukhothai, you will have time to explore the wonderful sites of Bangkok like the King Palace, the Temple of Down, Amulet Market, and more.
Once we arrive in Sukhothai our restorative journey will truly begin at the Lotus Village where spa treatments, yoga, aroma therapy, and more will be infused into our daily routine. Here we will embrace the history and culture of Thailand, visiting the historical park, taking in the striking native landscape, and participating in a traditional Thai cooking class & dinner. Our cooking lessons (and our options for spa treatments & yoga!!), however, don’t stop there; when we arrive at the Evason Resort Hua Hin, we will spend two intimate days in the kitchen with Jean Christian learning his master craft of vegan cooking. Our Adventure will end in Bang Saphan, where we will complete our wellness experience on the breathtaking coast, basking in the turquoise waters, snorkeling with the exotic marine life, and relaxing on the sandy beaches.
With the charming and knowledgeable Jean Christian Jury as our personal guide, Adventurers will depart from Thailand with a better understanding of the the rich heritage of this exotic land and how this unique culture has influenced the flavor-infused Thai cuisine that has been carried around the globe.
