The popular Annual World Gourmet Festival, now in its 9th year, will take place 22-28 September 2008 at the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok. Since its inception nine years ago, the World Gourmet Festival has grown in prominence to feature an extraordinary line up of some of the world’s best chefs from all continents.

Several food festivals are hosted throughout the world, however the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is one of the very few hotels to bring award winning Master Chefs under one roof for a week long celebration of outstanding food, superb wines and to share tips and information on how to create award-winning cuisine.

This year the full line up of chefs is:

• Jeffrey Jake, The Carneros Inn, Napa Valley, California, USA
• Michael Ginor, Hudson Valley Foie Gras, USA,
• Maurizio Quaranta, Locanda del Pilone, Alba, Italy
• Glen Ballis, Nedal'nij Vostok, Moscow, Russia
• Siggi Hall, Siggi Hall Restaurant, Reykjavik, Iceland
• Celina Tio, The American Restaurant, Kansas City, USA
• Michael Laiskonis, Executive Pastry Chef, Le Bernardin, New York, USA

The event is coordinated and overseen by Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok Executive Chef - Nicolas Schneller, Shintaro Chef - Satoshi Sawada and Biscotti Chef - Danilo Aiassa.

Each chef will host two evenings in one of the hotel’s restaurants; and a cooking demonstration either for lunch or dinner. Guests can also catch them all at one time at the seven-course Gala dinner on Friday, 26h September 2008.

The World Gourmet Gala Dinner promises to be a unique and memorable affair. A cocktail reception will take place from 7:00 pm followed by a seven-course dinner and entertainment. A live auction will feature exciting travel prizes that showcase sister Four Seasons hotels around the globe.

A portion of all proceeds from the Gala dinner 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 which provides medicine for pregnant mothers who are afflicted with AIDS.

To enjoy this culinary sojourn, the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok has created a Gourmet Package which includes deluxe overnight accommodation, full access to the Executive Club (including breakfast, evening cocktails and free internet access) and a featured dinner of choice for each night booked. Packages start at THB13,650 per night plus tax for double occupancy. For the Gala dinner, Baht 3,000++ per person needs to be added to the package rate.
