Six top chefs from some of Phuket’s premier luxury resorts are joining forces for a charity dinner at ‘Millionaire’s Mile’ hideaway Paresa Resort in aid of underprivileged women and girls.
 
The gastronomic fundraiser is on March 25 at the exclusive resort in Kamala, with tickets priced at THB4000 net (USD130). For reservation details please send email to fbd@paresaresorts.com.
 
Themed ‘Six of the Best’, the prestigious event showcases the culinary talents of six of Phuket’s most acclaimed chefs – each contributing one course to the six-course gala unique dining experience matched with fine wine.
 
Participating chefs are Paresa Resort’s James Stanton, Thomas Smith of Sheraton Grande Laguna, Amanpuri’s Stefano Artosin, Justin Maiklem and Jimmy Karl of Anantara Phuket, Silvano Amolini of Dusit Thani Laguna and David Hamilton of Banyan Tree Phuket.
 
The sumptuous dining event starts with canapés on the manicured lawn of the luxury cliff-top retreat overlooking the Andaman Sea. Dinner is at Paresa’s celebrated Diavolo restaurant, renowned for its calendar of gourmet events and with a spectacular 270 degree ocean view.
 
The unique teaming of Phuket’s chefs is being supported by their suppliers who will donate all the menu ingredients and wine – ensuring all proceeds go to “The Good Shepherd Sisters” charity.
 
There are seven charity organizations under “The Good Shepherd Sisters” in both Phuket and around Thailand.
 
They help women and children who have been abused, are caught up in human trafficking or the sex industry, are poor or suffering from HIV. They are given shelter, counseling and the opportunity to re-educate themselves and thus earn a decent living. Goods made by the women are sold at Paresa's boutique as well as some of the other top resorts in Phuket.
 
The ‘Six of the Best’ fundraiser is planned to become an annual event at Paresa, with the talented line-up of the island’s top chefs each year.
 
The Good Shepherd Sisters (www.goodshepherdbangkok.com) is a non- denominational Thai registered charity helping all those in need.
