The Michelin stars are aligning for a gastronomic spectacular at Sofitel So Bangkok, with the urban design hotel confirmed to gather 12 renowned chefs from around the world for the 4th So Amazing Chefs 2015 taking place from Tuesday 6th to Sunday 11th October 2015.
“This year’s gastronomic festival is the most high profile event we’ve ever put together, with the constellation of amazing chefs representing a combined seven Michelin stars. The gathering highlights Bangkok as a foodie city, and promotes the exchange of epicurean ideas and inspirations,” said Mr. Yves Mudry, General Manager of Sofitel So Bangkok.
As in previous years, the So Amazing Chefs program is packed with a series of dinners and cooking classes, with the event highlight – the Culinary Showdown competition and gala dinner– taking place on Friday 9th October with proceeds going towards the CCF Foundation under The Royal Patronage of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. New additions this year include the introduction of special weekend brunches and an after-party which will feature guest DJ Chef Ferry van Houten on the decks.
