Thailand Festive Dinner
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, December 18, 2020
A fitting end to the year
" a holiday menu studded with seasonal specialities "

The Bailliage’s final dinner of the year was fittingly festive, a tasty exclamation point to an otherwise turbulent 2020. Held at longstanding seafood institution Lord Jim’s at the Mandarin Oriental, this year’s Christmas dinner was helmed by our own Conseiller Culinaire Chef Alessandro Haab.

On arriving guests were greeted with brimming glasses of Champagne Pierre Baillette ‘Le Village’ Premier Cru Extra Brut before sitting down to eight courses created by Chef Alessandro. He added classical European touches to a holiday menu studded with seasonal specialities.
