Introducing Samantha Mumba Chef Collaboration

 

Camile are delighted to announce the wonderful Samantha Mumba, a singer, actress, model and former Celebrity Master Chef Contestant as the latest guest chef to create a wonderful new dish for our menu. Samantha’s dish is a vegetarian take on one of Camile’s most well-loved curries; the wonderful massaman. Customers can enjoy her specially created Chickpea Massaman Curry from the end of June.

Like all Camile sauces, her massaman curry sauce is homemade daily, and she has loaded her dish with fresh and exciting ingredients; chickpeas, cherry tomato, peppers, broccoli, and Irish potatoes, all fragranced with Thai holy basil. The dish is served with Camile’s own steamed brown & wild rice for a delicious, healthy and wholesome meal with none of the guilt.

Commenting on the partnership with Camile, Samantha said; “I genuinely love to cook for my family at home and I am excited to be collaborating with Camile and being able to share this recipe with all of you. As a food lover I enjoy cooking and eating healthy dishes that are both flavoursome and filling – giving me lots of energy that I need as a busy working mum. I am delighted that this guilt-free dish will be conveniently available for those with a craving for something wholesome but deliciously satisfying.”

Following in the footsteps of previous successful guest chefs Rosanna Davison, Indy Power, Jo Canning, Derval O Rourke, and Holly White, Samantha has created a recipe she regularly enjoys to cook at home for friends and family.

Samantha’s Chickpea Massaman Curry will be available in all of our branches for £11.95 for a limited time only – so don’t wait!

A very Special Christmas stir fry from Camile

Camile Thai are delighted to present to you our brand new exclusive and limited edition Christmas special main course.
We are feeling very festive and as a result, we have come up with a delicious new stir-fry dish for you to enjoy this holiday season.

We thought to ourselves how could we create something with just a hint of Christmas but all the while retaining a Thai food feel? Well, we started thinking about the ingredients and what would work best together. We knew that turkey and cranberry sauce worked well together so we thought about how delicious it might be to use fresh, whole, ripe cranberries. The result….. AMAZING. Continue reading…


Finn Ni Fholain – Her dish in her own words

Whats going on?
So if you’re a Tooting living human, or indeed Balham, you may have noticed my face, looming at a much higher height then usual, in all the lovely Camile Thai restaurants and carry outs.
I teamed up with the folks at Camile to create a dish for their menu inspired by some of my favourite flavours and ingredients.

The Dish?
One of the things I love about Camile, beyond just my general obsession with Massaman curry, is the notion that a takeaway can be healthy. So much of our fast (or in this case I also just mean quick) food culture is taken up with food that does absolutely nothing for our bodies and just blasts them with an overload of sugar, salt, fat and a dose of MSG for good measure.
So its really awesome that the chefs at Camile are whipping up good food in literally minutes. Continue reading…


Our latest guest chef Finn Ní Fhaolain on healthy living & healthy eating.

Camile Thai interviewed with the best selling author, blogger, surfer, coeliac and all-round cool and interesting person – Finn Ní Fhaolain.

On your blog as in life, we can see that you love the sea, can you tell us what it is that you love so much? Do you have the same feeling wherever you are in the sea or is it different when you’re home in Ireland? 

I’ve lived by the sea ever since I was little and it’s always been a massive part of my life, from recreation – beach days rain or shine with my parents and friends, to sports – surfing, SUPing, sailing, swimming or even just running on the beach and even just for a good state of mind, be that a quiet walk by the sea or a quick plunge in the cold salt water. For me, it’s everything, food, the subject I studied in college, my adrenaline and also my calm. Life at sea vs living by the seaside is quite different. I love working on ships, but technically you’re not generally allowed in the water (so I actually spend more time in the gym in those weeks!) so the freedom I find there is not seeing land for a few weeks, it might also sound a bit mad but not being connected to land and for the most part your normal day to day (and often the internet!) is a wonderful way to touch base with your brain and not get distracted. I find I’m either focused on the work I’m doing or in my down time my brain is flooding with ideas for when I come home. I came up with the concept for the blog while I at sea and also the idea for an exciting venture next year this summer while in the Atlantic this summer. Continue reading…
