Thailand Luxury Weekend
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, September 26-27, 2020
A preview of the 5-star Sindhorn Kempinski
" members indulged in a multi-course dinner reminiscent of classical Continental favourites "

It is rare to be among the first to sample all that a 5-star luxury hotel offers in a major metropolis. Discerning Bangkok Chaîne members did just that one September weekend.

Attending the first major culinary event hosted at the newly-opened Bangkok Sindhorn Kempinski, Chaîne members indulged in a multi-course dinner reminiscent of classical Continental favourites whilst showcasing the kitchen’s technical prowess.

Acting as Échanson, Bailli Délégué Joe Thawilvejjakul paired the courses with cleverly chosen wines to set off each dish’s homely-yet-elegant flavours.

The reception was in the lobby where we sipped Champagne Taittinger Brut Rosé NV and enjoyed these canapés:
- sustainable ‘fine de claire’ Marennes-Oléron oysters
- gravlax with pumpernickel bread
- savoury éclairs
- beef tartare
- beetroot chips with hummus and asparagus.
 
And then we went in for dinner.
