Thailand Dinner
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, September 20, 2018
An excellent eight courses at Brasserie 9
" our thanks went to Linus Knobel for hosting the Bailliage for this very special evening "

Our September dinner was held at Brasserie 9 which is a French restaurant at the heart of the city occupying an elegant, colonial-style villa with a relaxing ambiance.

In a skilfully re-modelled mansion dating from Siam’s momentous Rama V era, the exterior combines elements of grandeur with rustic charm, featuring gleaming glass fixtures and timber beams.

The dinner started with a very warm welcome to the members and guests from a group of “little chef” children and our host, Chargé de Missions Linus Knobel.

This was followed by a truly exceptional dinner with the eight-course menu prepared by young Swedish Chef Kenny Karlsson and his brigade. Each course was paired with superb wines carefully selected by Échanson (since Honoraire) Thomas Schmelter.
