Luxury Hua Hin Resort launches unique dining programme for Charity

The chic resort is hosting the exclusive dinner event, on November 26, 2011, in aid of raising funds for those displaced by Thailand’s recent terrible floods and to promote awareness of climate change.

Four of Pranburi’s finest chefs – including Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi’s own culinary genius Executive Chef David Heidemann– will create a ground breaking five-course menu based around the elements of earth, wind, fire and water. Each chef will choose the element they will base their creations on before the event, while the evening will culminate with a fifth course created by a surprise mystery guest chef from Bangkok.

This exceptional event will take place on the beach, the perfect venue to pay respect to the earth’s elements of the sea, sand and sky. Tickets cost THB3,500 per person.

The event isalso testament to the resort’s dedication to the SLOW food concept with all products used at the dinner produced within 40 kilometres of the resort – including the wine – ensuring that its carbon footprint isabsolutely minimal as well as continuing its support for local suppliers.

“We are bringing together Hua Hin’s finest culinary masterminds to raise much-needed money for flood victims while demonstrating how we can deliver sophisticated experiences in a relaxed,simple and peaceful beach front environment,” said Aleenta Resorts Founder Anchalika Kijkanakorn.


“We are consistent in offering healthy, naturally produced and sustainable sources of food, which,combined with the excellent skills of the visiting chefs, will result in atruly worthwhile and memorable dining event.”
