Asian Organic Gourmet Festival to be held in Bangkok, Oct 2-4

BANGKOK: The Annual Asian Organic Gourmet Festival 2015 will take place in Bangkok at the Riva Surya Hotel. A celebration of high quality organic produce in modern Asian cuisine will be the main focus of this year’s festival exclusively presented by high profile Asian chefs and held at the Riva Surya Bangkok, on the banks of the Chao Phraya river.

The event runs from 2-4 October 2015.

Guest chefs will present their own 3 and 4-course organic menus for both lunch and dinner.

Organic wines and a farmers’ market with fresh organic produce will be presented this year along with daily cooking demonstrations facilitated by professional TV hosts and guest nutritionists from the USA, speaking on organic lifestyle benefits.

Organic products will also be available for sale to all health conscious visitors at the farmers’ market Fri to Sun, 2-4 October from 09.00-19.00 hrs, along with organic farm produce from Thailand’s Royal Projects.

The Riva Surya is an elegant modern 68 room boutique hotel in Bangkok. The riverside swimming pool features an extensive outdoor cocktail/dining area and was recently included in the 10 Best Riverside Dining Venues in Bangkok by USA Today.

The hotel is located close to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun in Bangkok’s historic Rattanakosin District.

The Riva Surya is member of the SilverNeedle Collection, a grouping of unique resorts and boutique hotels in Asia.

The Organic Gourmet Festival will also be held in other SilverNeedle Collection properties including 137 Pillars House in Chiangmai 9-11 October and Kiridara, Luang Prabang, Laos during 16-18 October.

Donations will be made from revenue partly raised from the festival to the charity FOOD4GOOD program which is dedicated to solving the problem of malnutrition among under privileged children in Thai society.
