You read it here first! Well, probably... We have recently learned that a new resort, east of Chiang Mai and near the hot springs, will be opening in October. Called La Bhu Salah, it is conceived as an "artist's homestay" and will feature art studios for ceramics and painting under the guidance of Khun Ouan, formerly of Maesa Valley Resort. Additionally, it will offer the culinary expertise of the famous Thai chef and cookbook author Vatcharin Bhumichitr (Vatch) who will be overseeing the kitchen as well as giving cooking classes. YES! Vatch's books are my favorite Thai cookbooks and the one on Southeast Asian food is really an armchair travel book full of wonderful photos and commentary. He originally went to London to study graphic design in the 70's and continues to make prints (below). We'll go armed with a camera soon and have more to show.
