Thailand, October 24, 2017: Following months of intense preparation, the time has arrived. On October 25 and 26, 2017, 99 chefs from Thailand and around the world will generously donate their time to prepare 40,000 meals and 9999 snacks over two days for hundreds of thousands of Thais who will be paying final respects to their beloved Royal Thai King.
The meals are an initiative of World Chefs Without Borders, run by the Thailand Chefs Association, The Thai Culinary Academy, and Event9 Marketing who will provide raw ingredients, equipment and funds.
October 26 is the Royal Thai King’s Cremation Day; the whole of Thailand will be paying their final respect to the king with hundreds of thousands expected to travel to the cremation site.
International chefs participating in the event have travelled at their own expense, and all chefs involved have generously donated their time and skills to honour and pay tribute on this solemn day for Thailand.
