The event is coordinated and overseen by Executive Chef Nicolas Schneller, along with Shintaro Chef Satoshi Sawada and Biscotti Chef Daniele Cason, all of Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok.
Each guest chef will host two evenings in one of the Hotel’s restaurants. This year’s World Gourmet Festival will also see the introduction of two exclusive wine tasting events with renowned winemakers Pio Boffa of Pio Cesare, and Jonathan Maltus of World’s End, as well as a tea pairing event by world-class master tea-blenders Dilmah.
The hugely popular World Gourmet Lunch will take place daily from Monday, September 5 to Thursday, September 8, with a cooking demonstration from one of the guest chefs each day, live cooking stations, and a chance to sample some of the creations of the guest chefs. The famous World Gourmet Brunch, one of the most popular events of the whole festival, will take place on Sunday, September 11.
Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok has created the World Gourmet Festival package so that guests enjoying one of the festival dinners can retire to their guestroom afterward, full and content, and enjoy a good night’s sleep. The package includes overnight accommodations, complimentary breakfast, and a featured dinner for two persons per night booked.
Once again this year, the World Gourmet Festival is proud to support HRH Princess Soamsawali’s Save A Child’s Life from AIDS Project under the auspices of the Thai Red Cross Society. A portion of every ticket price, as well as proceeds from an auction, will be donated to this charity.
Guests can make reservations for the 12th Annual World Gourmet Festival dinners starting on Friday, August 5, 2011.
