Guest Chef Series with Peter Kuruvita at Banyan Tree 2018 Laguna Phuket Food & Music Festival

Award-winning Australian chef and restaurateur Peter Kuruvita will host a weekend of fine cuisine at Banyan Tree Phuket from April 27-29. With his remarkable 3-decade culinary career featuring world-renowned restaurants in Australia and Fiji, Mr. Kuruvita represents the latest highlight at the renowned luxury pool villa resort’s ongoing Guest Chef Series.



Best known for his popular Flying Fish restaurant brand, Mr. Kuruvita has delighted diners for decades with his inventive modern seafood dishes and fresh takes on local cuisine. His two cookbooks, Serendip – My Sri Lankan Kitchen and My Feast with Peter Kuruvita, won audiences over by blending culinary insight together with charming personal stories and a rich exploration of several stunning island countries.


Mr. Kuruvita has recently been active as a host for acclaimed TV series “My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita”, “Island Feast with Peter Kuruvita” “Mexican Fiesta” and latest series “Peter Kuruvita’s Coastal Kitchen”, covering culinary destinations in Asia, Australia and Mexico. He also frequently headlines food festivals worldwide, inspiring audiences with his skill and winning personality. Currently he acts an ambassador for Dilmah Tea, developing the concept of tea gastronomy and crafting new recipes from around the globe.


This much-anticipated weekend event at Banyan Tree Phuket luxury hotel offers food enthusiasts an opportunity to savour the style of tropical cuisine that made him famous, before Mr. Kuruvita embraced his new roles as TV presenter, author, industry speaker and restaurant consultant. His appearance at the Phuket resort comes right on the heels of the previous “Guest chef series” event starring Thailand’s first Lady Michelin-star chef, Khun Pom, from her acclaimed restaurant, “Saneh Jaan” in Bangkok. Future Banyan Tree Phuket culinary “Stars” in 2018 will see the arrival of a talented Japanese guest chef, as well as a 2-Michelin-star chef from Barcelona.


The three-day weekend extravaganza begins with a private lunch hosted for members of the media on Friday, April 27, followed by festivities in the afternoon and a magnificent dinner at Tre. A highlight this weekend for our regulars will be by Chef Kuruvita at our popular family Sunday Brunch on the 29th. Guests who enjoy the Sunday Brunch will receive an additional afternoon tea pairing experience, courtesy of Dilmah.


The weekend’s highlight also includes, the Laguna Phuket Food & Music Festival which is another one of Laguna’s community events for children and adults, tourists and locals. All visitors will be treated to a wide selection of gourmet food booths from local restaurants and a picnic area for listening to the concert performances. The event will also bring together live cooking performances as well as evening acts from prominent Thai rock bands Bodyslam and Sweet Mullet, drawing thousands of spectators on Friday evening to raise money for the Phuket Panyanukul School for children with special needs.


The Festival’s live acts will continue on Saturday from 4pm onwards, featuring famous Russian pianist and opera singer Ivan Sharapov, followed by the Phuket-based Black ‘n’ Blue band. Sunday’s performances will be headlined by the popular Thai duo Joe & Kong, with Black ‘n’ Blue returning to close the festivities at Phuket’s best resort.
