The Land of the Thunder Dragon welcomes Michelin-starred chef of Le Bernardin, Eric Ripert.
The tiny kingdom of Bhutan is without a doubt one of the most mystical, alluring, and pristine destinations in the Himalayas and always a frontrunner for adventurous travelers. But what Bhutan is not necessarily known for is cutting edge chefs and inventive cuisine—until this September. Next month, Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin, his three-star Michelin restaurant in New York City, will head to the Land of the Thunder Dragon to cook inventive cuisine for guests of the ultra-exclusive Amankora Thimphu on September 14th and 15th.
Eric Ripert plans to extend his stay to explore this captivating fairytale-like land. The twist? Guests of Amankora may have the opportunity to discover Bhutan right alongside Eric from September 14th-27th. Whether that means immersing themselves in the local culture at a local dzong to learn more about Buddhism, exploring the colorful local markets sourcing the best products (red hot chili peppers are a big hit), or learning firsthand what Gross National Happiness is all about, a journey to Bhutan is one-of-a-kind. The rare opportunity to share Bhutan with someone so passionate about the people and their way of life is experiential travel at its finest.
Absolute Travel invites you to experience the profound peace of these mountains, and the humor and hospitality of the people who call these lands home.
