Thailand has been affected by the worst floods in decades. Even parts of Bangkok have been under water for some time now. Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi, pioneers of Thailand’s high-end boutique resort scene and renowned for its forward-thinking cuisine are hosting an exclusive dinner event on November 26 to raise funds for helping those who have been displaced by the recent floods. The funds would also go towards creating awareness for climate change. The exclusive event will witness the creation of a five course menu inspired by the elements of earth, wind, fire and water.
Finest resident Chefs, including Aleenta’s Executive Chef David Heidemann, will each choose one of the elements and base their creations on that element. The fifth course will be created by a visiting celebrity chef from Bangkok. The name has not been announced as yet and will be the surprise element of the evening. The event will be held on the beach to be close to the natural elements. The guests attending the event will have to pay THB 3,500 per person. The exclusive menu will use products, including wines that are produced within 40 kms of the resort. This reinforces their policy of supporting the local suppliers and helps them minimize the carbon footprint.
Anchalika Kijkanakorn, founder of Aleenta Resorts stressed the point that they have been consistently offering healthy, naturally produced and sustainable sources of food. The culinary skills of the resident and visiting chefs will make it a memorable dining event. For the guests of the resort a dine around option has been designed which allows them to experience all in one evening. At the cost of THB 1,800 per person the guest will be offered champagne and canapés on the beach at sundown, dinner at the fabulous restaurant in the resort and served desserts on their balcony which they can savor in the company of moon and stars.
