THE PROJECT

Documentary photojournalism in Thailand with The Guardian and Olive Magazine.

LOCATION

Bangkok, Thailand

THE OBJECTIVE

We travelled back to Thailand, this time shooting for The Guardian and Olive Magazine with one of our clients, Thaikhun. The brief was to capture street food and the colourful traders in all their glory to run alongside a story about the potential removal of street food from the streets of Bangkok.

The group comprised of Felicity Cloake, Guardian food columnist, Janine Ratcliffe Olive Magazine Editor, Geoff Campion Fleet Street PR and James Hacon, Thai Leisure Group Brand Director.

GUNG FOI TORT
(Crunchy prawn fritters)

These aggressively hot and crisp fritters were a staple snack on our Thai trip – TIP: They are given extra crunch by leaving the shells on the prawns.
Recipe nicked from Felicity Cloake – Cheers Felicity!

 

INGREDIENTS
(Makes 6)

 

  • 600g smallish raw shell-on prawns
  • 50g plain flour
  • 100g rice flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Large handful of holy or sweet basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • Neutral oil, to fry
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

Shell the prawns, leaving the ends of the tails on if you want some extra crunch. Carefully cut them in half across their length and roughly chop.

Mix together the flour, salt, sugar and bicarb in a large bowl and then add enough cold water to make a loose batter slightly thicker than single cream. Add the prawns and basil – mix well.

Enjoy!
