With the inaugural Asian Masters wrapping up soon and the World Gourmet Summit on the horizon, it’s safe to say we’re well served when it comes to world-class culinary experiences. In the meantime, keep your tastebuds entertained with a jaunt up north to Thailand for the three-day Extravaganza of South-East Asian Gastronomy at the Koh Samui beach resort Napasai (65/10 Ban Tai, Maenam, Koh Samui., +66 7742-9200). From Feb 23-25, six elite chefs from Orient-Express’ Southeast Asian hotels will present their takes on cuisine from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. Among the events are a five-course signature dinner ($48 upwards), a gastronomic buffet ($59 upwards) and a Gala Dinner ($72 upwards). Proceeds from the event will go towards Thailand’s Foundation for Slum Child Care. A three-night stay at Napasai will cost about $520 per villa per night.
