Phuket Lifestyle: Top chefs to share a kitchen



PHUKET: The old adage of “too many cooks spoil the broth” receives a sound thrashing later this month and in fact will be given “Six of the Best” with an annual gastronomic fundraiser to help underprivileged children on Phuket.

“Six of the Best” features half a dozen chefs from Phuket’s premier luxury resorts and restaurants, who will join culinary forces to produce a six-course gala dinner to be hosted at “Millionaire’s Mile’s” hideaway, Paresa Resort Phuket.

This exclusive cartel of chefs includes Stefano Artosin (Amanpuri), Silvano Amolini (Dusit Thani), David Hamilton (Banyan Tree), Chalermchai (Kla) Prakobkip (Trisara), Ryan Arboleda (Paresa), Aaron Hooper (Joe’s Downstairs).

Each of these top chefs are contributing one course to this remarkable repast that will certainly encourage lovers of fine dining and worthy causes to attend.

“I’m very pleased and honored to be part of this great event and to give my small contribution to build a better future for those less fortunate then me,” said Silvano Amolini.

Not only are each of the resorts and restaurants extending support, but their individual food and beverage suppliers have also added to the exquisite mix by donating all the menu ingredients and wine, ensuring that all proceeds go directly to The Good Shepherd School.

In August 2010, The Good Shepherd set up a very basic school at the Phuket Fishing Port, one of the most unclean areas of Phuket. The premises comprised two pieces of concrete as a floor and chicken wire for walls to accommodate 20 children. There are now over 100 children registered with four grades of classes cramped into the same area.

Current funding is insufficient for even rudimentary resources such tables, chairs and even lunch for the children. But everyday the children come with smiles on their faces, their delight at being given the opportunity to learn and improve their lives entirely evident.

A solid foundation is the goal, both for the children and for a properly constructed school. Land has been donated by the local Thai community and financial donations generated by “Six of the Best” as well as other fundraisers will help realize a better learning environment for the students.

Last month the chefs involved in the upcoming event visited The Good Shepherd School in Phuket Town, with each bringing food and beverages for the kids.

“Six of the Best” will take place on Saturday, March 31 starting with cocktails at Miracle Lawn, Paresa Resort Phuket at 6pm.

Donations of 4,500 baht per person include the six-course menu paired and served with six choice wines.
