For the first time I'll be attending, and blogging about, the Four Seasons Bangkok's annual World Gourmet Festival. This year is the 10th anniversary of the event, and chefs such as David Kinch, from the acclaimed Manresa in California, and David Thompson from London's Nahm, will be in town cooking, teaching and leading culinary tours to celebrate the occasion. I plan to attend the dinners of these two chefs, as well as those of Graham Elliot Bowles of Chicago's Graham Elliot, Paola Carosella of Sao Paolo's Arturito, Christine Manfield of Sydney's Universal, and Fulvio Saccardi of Ristorante Conti Roero in Monticello D'Alba, Italy.
Leading up to the event, I'll be doing some brief profiles of the chefs above, and when the festival begins, I'll be blogging on the cooking demonstrations and meals, as well as interviews with some of the chefs.
The event will be held from October 5-11, at the Four Seasons Bangkok. For full details of the chefs involved and a schedule of the events planned, please refer to the official website. Some dinners are already sold out, so if you're in Bangkok and interested, act fast. Call the Four Seasons at +66 (0) 2 126 8866, or email the hotel at email@example.com.
