Four Seasons Chiang Mai and Chef McDang Invite Guests to Charity Dinner

Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai and Thai celebrity food expert, chef and writer ML Sirichalerm Svasti, popularly known as Chef McDang, will jointly host an exclusive dinner on Saturday, August 27, 2011 – all in the name of a good cause.

Presided over by Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali, the charity dinner will take guests on an exciting culinary journey through the principles and secrets of Thai cuisine, with cooking demonstrations and exquisite dishes created by Chef McDang himself. Proceeds from the dinner and live charity auction will go to HRH Princess Soamsawali’s Save a Child’s Life from AIDS project, under the auspices of the Thai Red Cross Society. The project was initiated with the key objective to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and provides medicine for pregnant mothers who are affected with AIDS.

The charity dinner event will take place at the renowned Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai Cooking School. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 6:30 pm, followed by a five-course dinner paired with fine wines. The menu will feature Chef McDang’s creations, including such items as timbale of fish curry mousse; pomelo and smoked salmon salad served in betel nut leaf cups; and braised beef osso bucco served with green curry sauce and black rice.

Tickets for the event are per person, and are inclusive of applicable tax and service charge. The Resort has created a special package for guests who would like to retire to a guestroom after dinner, full and content. The overnight package includes one night’s accommodation in a Lanna Pavilion, daily breakfast, and dinner tickets for two people. Prices are subject to government tax and service charge.
