October’s 16th annual World Gourmet Festival (WGF) is in the books, and this year’s edition raised the bar once again. Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali graciously presided over the event’s opening ceremony, and part of the proceeds from ticket sales and the festival’s auction went to her “Save a Child’s Life from AIDS Project”.
This year saw another assemblage of world culinary masters take Bangkok foodies through a gastronomic adventure to remember. The week’s line-up was crammed with Michelin-star talent, such as Francesc Rovira, Jean-François Bérard and Hirofumi Imamura. The one-week festival gathered the city’s most renowned foodies, celebrities, media, and high-society figures at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, and each evening was another marvel of culinary prowess that left all five senses buzzing. During the festival, Prestige, a longstanding media partner of WGF, hosted another edition of its Chef’s Table series for an exclusive gathering of VIP guests.
