The Esan (or Isan) name refers to both the region and the Thai-Laotian population of northeastern Thailand. Archeologists have unearthed evidence of Lao culture dating back to over 5,600 years ago originating in Esan. The majority of the rural area consists of farmers and an agricultural based society. A strong work ethic and large families have combined to create a unique and interesting style and cuisine type. Farm to table has been part of their cuisine for centuries, where only the freshest local ingredients are gathered and used daily.
Esan Classic is the result of years of collaboration between Chef Tom Silagorn (from Lers Ros) and Chef Chanon Hutasingh. Both Tom and Chanon are Thai natives with a passion for cooking. Both chefs have periodically traveled around Thailand exploring and researching the distinct cuisines of each region several times. It is in Esan that they found the unique and flavorful type of cuisine that they wanted to focus on and explore. Esan Classic was created to showcase the original Esan ingredients and flavors that Tom and Chanon have honed and refined over the years.
