‘Taste Of Belgium’ Cements Bilateral Relations Celebrations

November 11, 2013 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

With Thailand and Belgium celebrating the anniversary of their Treaty of Friendship and anniversary of diplomatic relations, Plaza Athénée, a Royal Méridien Hotel has been setting the scene for appropriate expressions of amity of a culinary variety.

The special culinary event began on Monday, 4 November 2013, with an exclusive guest chef appearance at The Reflexions restaurant by M George Deprez, the much celebrated Executive Chef at Sheraton Brussels, another hotel under the Starwood Hotels & Resorts umbrella, who on this occasion had the honour of cooking for, among other discerning diners, H.E. Marc Michielsen, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Belgium to Thailand.

“To celebrate 145 years treaty of friendship and 130 years of diplomatic relations I would like to thank Plaza Athenée, a Royal Méridien Hotel, to establish a partnership with the Embassy to organise the “Taste of Belgium” week. I am happy that the first edition of “Taste of Belgium” was a tremendous success. As Belgians and Thai both like good food I truly hope this event will be repeated on a yearly basis”. Said His Excellency, Marc Michielsen, and the Ambassador of The Kingdom of Belgium to Thailand.

Certainly, it was well supported by some of Belgium’s and Thailand’s most definitive brands, notably Thai Airways, Marcassou, Stella Artois, Leffe, Hoegaarden and Bdelicious!, besides, of course, the embassy, Sheraton Brussels and the host hotel itself.

The week-long culinary celebration continues until Saturday, 9 November 2013, with a Belgian Food Festival at The Rain Tree Café’s lunch and dinner buffets, featuring the likes of Guinea Fowl Stew with Brown Beer, Chicken Waterzooi, Ballotine of Poultry with Mushroom, Mussels with White Wine Sauce and Assorted Smoked Sea Fish, to name but a few.
