Culinary Cinema at KaTa Rocks

          Unique to Kata Rocks in Phuket, Culinary Cinema is an original way to interpret film using the senses via aroma, texture and taste. Guests receive a tray of numbered mystery boxes containing a bite-sized menu dégustation (tasting menu) custom-designed to enhance specific moments and punctuate dramatic highlights during the film.

          As the story progresses and plot line thickens, food-matched moments are signalled on a nearby screen, designating which numbered package that should be opened and enjoyed. Culinary Cinema menus are designed to represent a liberal and creative gastronomic interpretation of a prevailing emotion, environment, turn-of-phrase or overall feeling playing out on screen.

          Culinary Cinema Fun Facts: The menu is actually kept as a surprise until the evening of the event as to not ruin the experience of the Kata Rocks guests. However, the menu will feature a great variety of culinary delicacies, including cocktails and tapas, matched with the key moments on screen.
