Chef Gene Gonzalez, chef and owner of famed Café Ysabel, gives his colleagues at the Fencing Confederation of Asia a little taste of Thailand.

This is now a growing concern as more and more Asian fencers are now winning in the World championships and Olympic level. #fencinglife #fencingphilippines
During the conference, Gonzalez, a former fencer, was asked by his former teammate if he could round up some dishes locals ate in Bangkok. So the seasoned chef went to work gathering a plethora of dishes from hawker stalls to make his friend’s visit a memorable one.
