The Sheraton Hua Hin Resort and Spa hosted
a unique dining event this month called “The Four Scenes”
All those who participated in this event experienced not only great food but a spectacular ‘tour’ of food and drink. This event was both unique in nature and exclusive in flavor. The tour took guests around and through the various eateries offered at the Sheraton Hua Hin. Throughout the evening, the event team supported and guided their guests through the tour with simple but informative information regarding the different foods and wines. The commencement, or rather “Scene One” welcomed the guests at the Sheraton rooftop bar.
As each location for the evening was given its own name, the rooftop bar or Mountainside Setting was a spectacular beginning with chilled Banfi Vino Spumante and Tener Brut Castello. The cocktail party vibe was festive with great views of the local mountains and a direct line of sight over the lush Sheraton gardens. There was a litany of foods to choose from such as pomelo and prawn salad, vodka pani puri to smoked sturgeon, salmon and caviar. The oyster bar offered fresh oysters from Surat Thani and Pranburi and were accompanied by a delicate Bloody Marry shot.
This was a phenomenal start to the evening. We were then guided to Scene Two: InAzia. Again, our hosts led the tour from the rooftop bar to the Sheraton InAzia restaurant where we were treated to an elegant 3-part appetiser platter. The presentation was sophisticated and delicate. We indulged in Peking Duck with honey and five spices, a mutton roti that was out of this world and my personal favorite a Soba noodle and Miso scallop. Here, we shared in a local wine, Monsoon Valley’s Colombard. Careful attention to detail, service and ambiance made this leg of the tour a real pleasure.
Next, we meandered through the gardens stopping at Scene Three: Deliciozo. This alfresco setting was both fun and relaxed. By this time in the evening, the guests and hosts alike were socialising with one another, enjoying food related conversations and making new friends. The wine pairing at this point in our tour was Moda Talamonti Montepulciano from Italy. Smooth and perfectly chosen wine paired with Procini Risotto Torched Foie Gras, braised local sturgeon, rosemary lamb leg and Raclette cheese. Here, we had direct interaction with the chefs as we watched our food prepared and were given the rare opportunity to meet the people who help to create and maintain the renowned flavors found at the Sheraton, Hua Hin Resort. Last but definitely not least, Scene 4: Waan Jaa – Lunna Lanai Beach Bar. What a perfect end to a perfect evening. Open air, seaside beach and lounge was relaxed, cool and comfortable.
Our hosts, once again paired the final course perfectly with Grenache Gris Blanc, Gerard Bertrand Pays D’Oc from France and Sileni Pino Nori Hawke’s Bay from New Zealand. Sweet homemade ice cream, traditional Thai fried banana and coconut fritters alongside the Infinity Cheese Table closed the evening on a definite high. The F&B manager and his team promise to offer more food tour events.
This brilliant idea allowed the guests greater insight into the hotel’s hotspots but more importantly the entire concept, its implementation, the interaction with the Sheraton team and attention to detail made this evening more than just a night out…it was truly a food extravaganza.
