Meet the Chefs appearing at the 2017 World Gourmet Festival
Each year the arrival of the World Gourmet Festival has Bangkok’s legions of foodies salivating in anticipation. This year marks the 18th edition of this popular event, which runs from September 4th to the 10th at the Anantara Siam Bangkok hotel (presented in collaboration with S.Pellegrino). This year the chef line-up includes chefs from all over the world, with many new faces among the returning regulars.
Today’s Featured Chef:
MIGUEL LAFFAN (One Michelin Star)
Portuguese-born Miguel Laffan developed a passion for food from a young age. He took the opportunity to travel abroad to fine-tune his craft, working in Michelin-starred kitchens of Fortaleza do Guincho and Le Clous de la Violette in France, before gaining experience in Brazil and Spain. Subsequently, he led teams in boutique hotels in Funchal and Madeira before finding a kitchen to call home in Alentejo. These international influences enrich his cuisine and have helped him to achieve a Michelin star for the L’AND Vineyards Luxury Resort. Part of a new wave of chefs showcasing modern Portuguese gastronomy, Chef Miguel creates imaginative dishes with the freshest ingredients, using what is available locally, and he regularly participates in prestigious international food festivals.
