This is great stuff. I think we should pin this to the top of the forum page.

Well done!

A seminar will be held at Don's in Doi Hang (on the road to the national park and past the prison turn off) on Sunday morning Oct. 7 for the purpose of learning the ins and outs of growing jalapeno and habernaro peppers. The presentation will be made by a representative of the Royal Projects from Chiang Saen. There will also be an open discussion on the subject. The Royal Projects Representative will speak in Thai and an effort will be made to translate to English. Free coffee, tea and donuts will be served. The seminar will start on Sunday Oct. 7 at 09:30 and finish at 11:30. Some free jalapeno pepper plants will be given to the novice who is interested in growing them with the understanding that they will report the results so others can share their experience.

Being somewhat of a pepper plant fanatic this seems pretty interesting. I hope I can go!

Pepper growing is a good hobby as well as very interesting. Thailand presents some difficult issues for growing Central America type peppers. Look forward to meeting you.

Peppers provide the spice of life to food. When Cortez landed in Mexico in 1502 he brought pepper plants with him from Central America. 300 years later the entire Mexican diet had totally changed. This is a quote from Rick Baylis book on the history of Mexican Food. Most people don't believe that there were no peppers in Thailand until 300 years ago. Mexican and Thai foods are the craze of the world now.

Canadian David, ex-forestry fire-watcher, told me yesterday the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra will play at Dusit Island the 8th, which we decided was Sunday but seems instead to be monday - anyway, I haven't checked on this but David says admission price is B300.

The idea of an "Eating Club" appears to be one whose time has come (actually well past) in the CR area. Cudos to the one who brought it forward.

Chiang Rai is in need of responsible restaurant owner/managers who are willing to produce a good meal with consistant quality, quantity, good service and at a reasonable price. It seems that there are to many places like "New York Pizza" that turns out to be "Esan Pizza". I see the reports on fine eating places in Chiang Rai but so for have not been to one that meets my standards. However, I have not been to all of them and understand that the old airport Super Burger place is pretty reasonable. After having been in the food business for 10 years I know that people can do a good job if they wish to and not delegate it.

I believe that we can find at least 3 other places in Chiang Rai that would like to host the Eating Club once per month. Just think how great it would be if you could go out to eat each Saturday night and enjoy the meal, service and price.

With the utmost respect there are many fine eating restaurants in Chiang Rai and I personally do not include your restaurant

amongst them.

Your posting seems to be an effort to get more business for your restaurant and though you are entitled to ''blow your own trumpet'', I would not rate your restaurant in the top 50 in Chiang Rai.

This is my personal opinion and good luck to your venture in Chiang Rai or elsewhere.

Surely an eating club should not be based in one specific restaurant but should sample the culinary delights of all restaurants in Chiang Rai.

Some local farangs were asked last year to grow Jalapenos for a local, farang owned factory who sell them to a large sandwich company in Thailand.

They had to buy the plants and compost from the company but after all costs were added the growers were actually losing money.

Sounds like a bad idea.

Go Tayto!!

You're entitled to your opinion and I agree there definitely seems to be a recent surge of business owners using TV.com to promote their business. (Without becoming a sponsor).

Apart from that I can't comment, I had a hamburger once in the main street that wasn't bad and my Mrs took me to eat some seriously good Thai food one night but have no recollection of the restaurant whereabouts. Somewhere near where they hold the Chinese New Year parade.

This is the first time and probably the last time I have same opinion as you Tayto!!

Been to Don´s place for dinner and that was my worst experience of eating in Thailand.

Me and my wife had to go to dinner after leaving the restaurant.

So I am not into this eating club.

So tayto, where did you hear this? I heard it too and you did NOT buy ANYTHING from that company. But you got a list with what you needed to start, how to build the greenhouse, how to arrange wateringsystem and where to find the seeds. Then you should follow the instructions, plant the seeds, build the greenhouse and water the plants.

There are many farmers that has started in the province and they make a lot of money. But these farmers are not sitting in the bars in Yet Yod talking shit about succesful farang business.

A bit harsh there Sven, even though I agree 100% with you :o

These peppers are very difficult to grow, especially here so if you don´t devote yourself to it you´ll probably end up losing money and making excuses instead.
