Nine chefs representing eight countries take over Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel for seven days at the 17th annual World Gourmet Festival, 19 – 25 September 2016. The week-long event is heralded by a champagne lobby concept featuring six prestigious houses, sake and cocktail master classes, a perfume pairing event and finishes with a Sunday Brunch like no other.
Each chef has been hand selected from San Pellegrino’s 50 Best Restaurants, and will take over one of Anantara Siam’s award-winning restaurants for lavish dinners, each enhanced with a curated selection of wine, sake or spirits. We highlight some of the most anticipated chefs of the festival:Chef Mauro Colagreco – Founder and chef at the two-Michelin star restaurant Mirazur, Menton, France.
In 2006 Chef Colagreco opened his own restaurant Mirazur and just over a year later he earned his first Michelin star. In 2009 Mirazur became officially one of the premier restaurants in the world, listed on the infamous San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants. In the same year, Colagreco was also awarded “Chef of the Year” by the prestigious Gault & Millau restaurant guide. Through his personal interpretations of ingredients and flavour combinations, Mauro Colagreco has forged a style of his own. He has absorbed his Italian-Argentinian cultural heritage and that of the chefs with whom he trained. His cuisine is inspired by three themes: sea; gardens; mountains
Chef Mauro Colagreco makes Madison restaurant his own for exclusive set-dinners on 23 and 24 September. Nightly, each of his five sumptuous courses will be paired with champagne or wine, and are sure to bring a piece of Mirazur to Anantara Siam. Nightly seating at 7:00 pm | THB 6,900++ per person including wine pairing.Bobby Chinn – Chef, Restaurateur, TV Personality and Cookbook Author
