The Mandarin Oriental Hotel held a press conference on

Monday 23rd May to give details of the event, which will

raise funds for underprivileged children in the remote

regions of Thailand.


Highly original in concept, from an idea proposed by

Gourmet One, an importer and supplier of fine food

products, the gala dinner will combine the skills of some

of the nation's top chefs, to create a nine course gourmet



Last year over 5,000,000 baht was raised, an increase of

more than 1,500,000 baht on year one, and event

organisers are hoping to surpass these figures in 2011.


Gourmet delights to savour on the night include: Poached

Canadian Atlantic Lobster, Peruvian Asparagus, Pan-Fried

Mignon of Duck Foie Gras, Grade 7 Fillet Mignon Marbled

Wagyu Beef with Shiraz-Cabernet and Summer Truffle

Sauce Gratin of New Harvested Spunta Potatoes and

Banana Passion Fruit ice Cream.


A display of eye catching canapes and hors d'oeuvres

was prepared to give just a sample of the fine fare that

will be on offer on the night.


Tickets are priced at 8,888 baht per seat.
