Eight internationally known master chefs have signed up for the 12th annual World Gourmet Festival at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok. The festival runs from Sept. 5-11, 2011.
Gourmet festivals exist throughout the world but only Four Seasons Bangkok, said a Four Seasons spokesperson, brings award-winning master chefs under one roof for a week-long celebration of outstanding food and great wines.
The event is co-ordinated and overseen by Executive Chef Nicholas Schneeler along with Shintaro Chef Satoshi Sawada and Biscotti Chef Daniele Casin, all of Four Seasons Bangkok.
Each guest chef will be host to two evenings in one of the hotel’s restaurants. The popular World Gourmet lunch will be featured daily from Sept. 5-8, with cooking demonstrations from one of the guest chefs of the day, live cooking stations and a chance to sample some of their creations. The World Gourmet brunch will be held on Sunday, Sept. 11.
This year’s festival will also include two exclusive wine-tasting events by two well known winemakers as well as a tea-paring event by world class master tea blenders Dilmah.
Master chefs confirmed for this year’s festival:
Ivo Adam, Seven, Ascona, Switzerland; Adriano Cavagmini, Amaranto, London; Anthony Demetre, Wild Honey, London; Guido Haverkock, Espacio, I Portici, Balogna; Dolli Irigoyen, Espacio Dolli, Buenos Aires; David Lee, Nota Bene, Toronto; Hari Nayak, Orissa, New York; and Kazumi Sawada, Hoku, Guangzhou, China.
Also again this year, a portion of every ticket price, as well as proceeds from an auction, will be donated to HRH Princess Soamsawali’s Save-A-Child’s Life from AIDS project under the auspices of the Thai Red Cross Society.
The hotel is also offering a festival package that includes overnight accommodation for two, complimentary breakfast and a featured dinner.
