Fantastic report Andrea! Are you going to try to reproduce any of the recipes?


Wow! I just posted about the Phuket Vegetarian Festival that week and I wish I was in Thailand this year, but now I'm traveling in Buenos Aires. Now this post is making miss Thailand more and I'm glad you had a great time there.

Hi Cathy - for sure! I will definitely be having a go at some vegan Thai-inspired recipes over the next few months!

Hi Rika - yes, I so wish I could have stayed an extra few days for the festival! Next year, I hope :) How are you finding being vegan in Buenos Aires?


Welcome back, Andrea! This post was so informative and exciting to read. If I ever make it to Thailand, I know where to go for guidance:) Looking forward to those recipes...


Hi Adriana! I hope you do get there - it was an amazing exploration of fab food! :)

Hi there. Glad you enjoyed the lovely vegan food in Chiang Mai - just one side-note: papaya salad is never made with soy sauce, that would be gross! When I learnt how to make it on a Thai vegetarian cooking course, I was told the vegan substitute is mushroom sauce or powder. Now I use that in every Thai dish I cook! And you are right in saying it's quite easy to be vegan/vegetarian in Chiang Mai - I hear plenty of people complaining that it's so hard and I can't help but roll my eyes at them. =)

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
