Something delicious has been happening in the world in recent years. And you don’t have to be an expert gourmand to have heard the term Bistronomy. The evidence of this change has been popping up here and there around the globe sometime since the mid-1990s. During that decade we first saw signs of this culinary revolution in Paris, France. While, in most recent times, as Bistronomy in Bangkok, Thailand, is definitely a thing for your palate to reckon with, as well, we could say that it has traveled around the world since its beginnings.
The Bistronomy movement itself could be called a revolution of sorts indeed. It began like this. Restaurants were becoming ever more “haute” and posh, striving for the highest end experience possible by human effort in quest of a coveted Michelin star, which has defined haute cuisine for over the past 100 years. They were also charging ever more outrageous prices in doing so. In this rather restrictive atmosphere, some chefs began to wonder if there was not a way to break the mold of all this ostentatious exclusionism — a way to bring dining back to our everyday world of experience.
There came about a desire to produce delicious high-quality gastronomic pleasures yet with the casual and warm atmosphere represented in a more local bistro. A true talent in the kitchen, Yves Camdeborde, chef and owner of La Régalade in Paris, is said to have been the first to do so. Thus was born Bistronomy, as a portmanteau of bistro and gastronomy.
The idea took off among the younger and quite creative set of chefs, who had respectable credentials but were looking more to produce a sincerely made and tasty meal that could be enjoyed by more people, with more normal pricing. In other words, to fulfill the life calling of a chef by serving people a good meal — rather than excluding most of the population in search of a precious work of art and astounding prices.
Although the concept of Bistronomy was rejected by critics at first. They called it a cop-out or a surrender to lower forms of dining. Yet the chefs who tried it were warmly rewarded by the new popularity they achieved and the better relations they had earned with their guests. Eventually even the biggest names in the Michelin-starred chef universe began to supplement their own eatery investments with Bistronomy style restaurants!
General trend developed several recognizable qualities. These were identified as offering smaller venues with not so many staff, allowing the chef to mingle more personably with the guests. Wonderful ingredients are also essential, though they need not be as outlandish as the very haute establishments. A warm, friendly atmosphere is key, however, and a price that is honest and reasonable.
Now that the concept of Bistronomy has made it around the globe, we are finally able to enjoy this pleasure at Bangkok’s best restaurant too.
With Bistronomy in Bangkok, just as it became in Paris, the emphasis changed from being about exotic and difficult to source ingredients, to being about the best picks from fresh, locally grown produce. This is something that La VIE Bistronomy – Casual Gourmet excels in, a fact we will mention since we are talking about Bangkok’s best restaurant.
