From December 4-13, soak up the sights along the river while you savour some of the city’s top dishes at River on a Plate. Eight riverside hotels team up once again for this fine dining festival. For ten days, participating restaurants at the hotels are offering special menus paired with a complimentary bottle of red or white wine. That’s followed by a decadent dessert and a cup of coffee. The event also features wine and cheese tastings, talks and demonstrations from celebrity chefs, book signings, and master classes in Thai cooking. The Farmer’s Market at Anantara Bangkok Riverside will be held in conjunction with the event on December 5 and 6, offering farm-fresh products and high-quality cooking gear for sale. Prices range from B1888 to B4888 for a dinner for two. Visit bangkokriverexperience.com for more information and online reservations.
