Thailand Dinner
Bailliage Provincial of Eastern Seaboard
Pattaya, August 11, 2018
Fredi Schaub excels once again!
" We were delighted to welcome members from Bangkok and Phuket "

For 22 years Bruno’s Restaurant has been a Pattaya institution when it comes to fine dining. The annual Bailliage dinner held there is a culinary highlight eagerly anticipated by our members.

This year`s dinner was no exception. Owner/Chef Fredi Schaub, Maître Rôtisseur, once again created an exceptional menu that promised to be the fine dining experience for which we were all looking … and we were not to be disappointed!

We were delighted to welcome members from Bangkok and Phuket who took the opportunity to join this culinary occasion.

At the reception we were greeted with pass-arounds of Asian shrimp wonton cups, baby Mozzarella and cherry tomato skewers, beef tartare on baked blinis and risotto balls in tomato sauce. Faustino Cava Brut Reserva ‘Metodo Tradicional’ NV was the chosen “bubbles” accompaniment.

The imaginatively decorated dining room awaited us. The menu had four of the seven fine courses paired with Spanish wines from Bodegas Faustino, world leaders in top-class Rioja wines.
