The Italian Embassy, in collaboration with the Thai-Italian Chamber of Commerce, the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Board of Tourism, is bringing to Thailand the 4th edition of the Week of Italian Cuisine in the World, based on this year’s theme, “Food Education: a Taste of Culture”.

“From November 19 to 29, several activities will take place in Thailand, offering a unique opportunity to share some great, healthy culinary with food lovers,” a statement said.

The Ospitalità Italiana Award Ceremony on November 19 at Gaysorn Urban Resort will mark the official opening of Italian Cuisine Week.

The gastronomic event will recognise and certify authentic Italian restaurants in Thailand and showcase new food products from Italy. 

The president of ALMA, the prestigious Italian International School of Cuisine in Colorno, Parma province, will be a special guest for the evening.

In the course of Cuisine Week, dedicated menus will be presented by 20 top-notch Italian restaurants in Thailand – Gianni Ristorante, Galleria Milano, Mio Food&Art, Peppina, Enoteca, Italian Osteria, Brunello, La Scarpetta, Il Bolognese, Appia, Rossano’s and La Scala in Bangkok; Portofino, Acqua, Rossovivo, La Carbonara and Bocconcino in Phuket; Da Antonio in Chiang Mai; Acquapazza in Pattaya; and Pepenero in Koh Samui.

If you wish to taste Italy’s best wine with internationally acclaimed wine critic James Suckling, head to a grand tasting event on November 27 at Grand Hyatt Erawan – Bangkok’s largest premium Italian wine event showcasing more than 100 Italian producers handpicked by Suckling himself at a walk-around tasting, the statement added.

You can also go on a Sicilian journey with chef Martina Caruso’s menu at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok on November 22-23 and at Banyan Tree Phuket on November 29-30. Caruso recently won the Michelin Female Chef Award 2019.

Cuisine Week will conclude on November 29 with a charity gala dinner followed by a live opera concert, “The Taste of Music 2019”, at the Mandarin Oriental.

And for the first time in Thailand, a rare museum copy will be displayed of the Codex of the Flight of Birds by Leonardo da Vinci on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the passing of the Italian genius.
