Thailand Chapitre
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, March 17, 2018
Highly successful event in the finest Chaîne tradition
" Dinner consisted of a masterfully-created six courses presented by Chef Markus Zuck "

The 44th annual Chapitre in Bangkok was held at The Residence of the 5-star Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, grandly situated at the heart of the city’s commercial and business district. Furthermore, its stylish function rooms make it the perfect banqueting destination.

We were honoured that International Vice-President Marie Jones had travelled from England to join us as Inducting Officer. The ceremony saw 15 new members inducted including four members from the Bailliage of Myanmar. There were also 30 promotions.

After the formality and emotion of the Induction Ceremony, during which Marie Jones emphasised the principle ethic of the Chaîne as being friendship around gastronomy, members new and old met and conversed during the cocktail reception.

‘Pass around’ canapés included classic beef tartare, olive crostini, sunny side up quail’s egg, walnut lavash, Bayonne ham, Brie de Meaux, fresh fig, lightly-smoked salmon tartare, herb crêpe, Japanese salmon roe with dill. They were accompanied by Champagne Palmer ‘Blanc de noirs’ NV. 

Entering the dining room, everyone was enthused by the splendidly-decorated tables. Dinner consisted of a masterfully-created six courses presented by Chef Markus Zuck.
