History of French Cuisine in Thailand

The influence of French cuisine in Thailand dates back to the late 17th century, during the reign of King Narai the Great, who fostered diplomatic relations with France. French culinary traditions were introduced to the Thai court, leading to the incorporation of French ingredients and cooking techniques into Thai royal cuisine. Over the years, French cuisine continued to influence Thailand's culinary landscape, with the opening of French restaurants and the adaptation of French dishes to suit local tastes. Today, Bangkok boasts a thriving French dining scene, with a diverse array of restaurants, bistros, and patisseries offering authentic French fare that reflects the country's rich gastronomic heritage.
