Spice Up Your Friday At This Free Thai Food Experience

UPDATE: This event has been cancelled as a mark of respect, following the death of the King of Thailand.

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Chang Beer.

Renowned TV chef Jet Tila will be spicing up Spitalfields with the sights, smells and flavours of Thailand on 14 October.

Following outings in Singapore and Los Angeles, the Chang Sensory Trails is giving Londoners the chance to be transported waaaay east (yes, even further than Upminster), through food, beer, music, art and a fragrant herb garden.

Organised by Thai lager Chang Beer, the free event gives you the chance to sample delicious Thai food and wash it down with a tasty beer.

Some of London's top Thai restaurants will be serving up dishes inspired by Tila's memories. Try 101 Thai Kitchen's Somtum and southern style fried chicken, based on Tila's travels through northeast Thailand; Thaikhun's Khao Ka Moo; or Busaba Eathai's tender Thai calamari.

Otherwise, go for Thai Tho's green chicken curry and rice. This is powerful stuff: "the dish that won my wife over," he says.

Not only will your taste buds be tantalised, but your eyes, ears and nose are also in for a treat. Music-wise, Live Lounge — based on the Radio 1 concept — will be performing their versions of the station's hits, while street-artist Squirlart turns his painting creativity into a feast for the eyes.

Take a wander through the herb garden and inhale the aromas of fresh Thai ingredients, before flopping back with a Chang Beer and breathing in the buzz of Thailand.

Chang Sensory Trails, 14 October, midday-10pm, Spitalfields Market, free. For more information, and to find out how you could win VIP tickets at the Chef's Table — a chance to dine on fine Thai cuisine with Jet Tila himself, click here.
