Philippe Etchebest of 2-Michelin Stars Hostellerie de Plaisance in Bordeaux, France hosted by The Pavilions, Phuket - Thailand

The Pavilions, Phuket, member of Relais & Chateaux, is proud to welcome 2 Michelin Stars Chef Philippe Etchebest from Hostellerie de Plaisance in Saint Emilion, France for a gastronomic week from 13 to 16 January 2010.

Our guests and Phuket residents will have the opportunity to meet Philippe Etchebest on these exclusive nights as well as learn from the master himself during a unique cooking class. All will take place in the beautiful setting of The Pavilions, Phuket, at the Plantation Club overlooking the Andaman Sea.

“Meilleur Ouvrier de France” in 2000, Philippe Etchebest earnt his first Michelin star while working at the Chateau des Reynats in 2002. Since 2004, he shares his talent at the Hostellerie de Plaisance, has been promoted to Grand Chef Relais & Chateaux in 2007 and obtained his 2nd Michelin star in 2008. He was also graded 18/20 Three “Toques” Guide Gault & Millau in 2009.

Philippe creates a different menu every day according to what he buys in the markets. He also brings touches from his various travels with great respect for local produces. The architecture of the dishes is very important to him but what primes is the taste and how the different dishes complement each other.

Philippe says “I chose this profession because I like to share; I like new discoveries and adapting my cuisine to the constant evolution of food.” Philippe uses the finest and freshest ingredients and he will make no exception on this event.

Philippe will generously prepare a gourmet menu on the evenings of 13 to 16 January and will share his passion and culinary expertise during a cooking class on the 15th at the Verandah Restaurant.

The Pavilions, Phuket is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Andaman Sea. Just a few minutes from Bang Tao and Layan Beach, this romance destination is close enough to life on the island, but enough removed for a tranquil escape. Supreme privacy can be expected in their luxuriously proportioned private villas, with a bedroom directly opening up to a stunning infinity pool with breathtaking ocean view. The Pavilions, Phuket is the perfect place for indulgence, intimacy and precious time together.
