Laughing Monkey is a unique food producer in Chiang Mai.
We produce English and European food classics like dry cured smoked bacon, sausages in natural skin, lasagne and British Indian curries. Northern Thailand with its seasons gives a variety of products and the Kings Royal Projects allows us to utilise their freshest, local produce. The perfect location to cook great tasting food, without artificial flavouring or chemicals.
For our beef products we use Kho Khon beef, a Thai French breed that is not only of high quality, it also has great flavour. It is a recognized breed and purchased from a reputable supplier in Chiang Mai.
All pork products are supplied by CNF, a family-run farm on the outskirts of Chiang Mai. CNF breeds, farms, slaughters and butchers everything themselves and are accredited with HACCP & ISO 9002. Their processing, procedures, and technology are of the highest standards.
All of our products are vacuum packed in food save bags and/or frozen and are of generous portion. The kitchen facilities are hygienic, clean and safe; UK style practices. The products can be collected from our shop, at a convenient collection point, or delivered to your door.
I’m Ian Corps, a seasoned Chef from the UK. Back in London I worked in an array of restaurants in and around the city to learn the trade. Once I gained the necessary experience I decided it was time for my own company in event catering. Highlights I catered were garden parties at Buckingham Palace, the Millies Awards, Wimbledon Tennis Championships, movie premieres and several Paris Air Shows to mention but a few.
I was fortunate to work in many different kitchens with a multitude of flavours which inspired me to travel around the world. One of my trips took me to Thailand, where I fell in love with the country and my wife. I decided to take the big step and move here. But as much as I love Thai food, sometimes I missed western food, or when available the quality was often disappointing, so I decided to set up Laughing Monkey, which launched in 2015
