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:
SHINICHIRO TAKAGI (Two Michelin Stars)
Chef Shinichiro Takagi has dedicated his life to Zeniya, his family restaurant, and has grown it from a modest local eatery to an unforgettable dining experience worthy of its two Michelin stars. Born in Kanazawa in 1970, Takagi earned a bachelor’s degree in commercial science before moving on to study the art of Kaiseki cuisine at Kyoto Kiccho, one of Japan’s top restaurants. With a deep understanding of the art and philosophy of Japanese cuisine, he has performed as a guest chef in many international hotels and at numerous renowned culinary events—always endeavouring to spread the word about Kaga cuisine globally. In December 2016 his restaurant Zeniya was named on La Liste as one of the world’s top 1000 restaurants.
