World Gourmet Festival Brings the Stars to Bangkok

Thirteen chefs from twelve Michelin-starred restaurants and nine countries will cook a special dinner series from 3 to 9 September in Bangkok. See the line-up.

This year's grandiose World Gourmet Festival, sponsored by S.Pellegrino, returns with an exciting line-up of dinners and masterclasses for its 19th edition organised by Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel.

A host of international chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants in the US, Europe and the Far East, as well as an award-winning chocolatier and some returning familiar faces, will all be in the Thai capital, from 3 to 9 September 2018.

While lavish meals take over the hotel's four main dining venues - Madison, Spice Market, Shintaro and Biscotti, a number of master cooking classes will also encourage foodies and budding chefs to roll up their sleeves and have a go.  Whether it be having a go at chocolate making with chocolatier Paul A Young or tasting Sake in one of the many classes on offer.
