Turkish chef Tolgar Mireli is back at 137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok for a two-day culinary journey, taking place through two gala dinners on October 26 and 27, that will bring some delights from Turkey’s cuisine and culture to the capital to celebrate the Turkish National Day (October 29).
Chef Tolgareh—who also participated in the Fourth Asian Organic Gourmet Festival (AOGF) held earlier this year at the same hotel—has worked in some of the world’s top restaurants including Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche in London, the first UK restaurant to be awarded one, two, and three Michelin stars. He also worked at the two Michelin-starred and four Gault Millau toque restaurant Hubertus, in Austria, and at German star chef Johann Lafers’ Michelin-starred Le Val D’Or. While he loves cooking classical French and Italian cuisine, chef Tolgar also has a passion for promoting the rich variety of tastes and styles that can be found in Turkish cuisine.
The two gala dinners will take place at Nimitr restaurant (27th floor), offering fantastic views of Bangkok. For the same, chef Tolgar has created two different five-course set menus priced at THB 3,000++ for food only, and THB 4,000++ with a wine pairing done by the hotel’s sommelier.
Some traditional dishes that guests will be able to taste are:
- Hummus, a cumin-flavored chickpea puree
- Mantı, meat-stuffed mini dumplings with sumac
- Slow-cooked lamb shoulder wrapped in kadayif with garlic pilaf
- Pumpkin dessert with tahini and walnuts and cream-stuffed dried apricot and figs
Focused on the combination of food, wine, and decades-old Turkish traditions, the event titled “Culinary Delights from Turkey” is co-sponsored by Turkish Airlines. Diners attending the gala dinners can take part in a lucky draw for a chance to win two roundtrip business class tickets to Europe sponsored by the airline.
In addition, from October 26 onward, visitors to the hotel will also have the opportunity to get to know and taste Tur
kish coffee along with traditional baklava and Turkish delights in the hotel lobby.
