The St. Regis Bangkok presents the culinary excellence of acclaimed chef Vincenzo Candiano from December 11 to 16, bringing the latest in its long line of guest chefs to Jojo Italian Restaurant.

Sicily-born Candiano, who hails from the 2-Michelin-Star Locanda Don Serafino Restaurant in the historic city of Ragusa, almost exclusively selects local produce and Mediterranean fish for his artistic and flavourful creations, which reference the traditions and culture of his Sicilian and ancient Hyblean heritage. He will be offering two exclusive degustation menus for lunch and dinner, each with an optional and perfectly matched wine pairing.

The 5-course lunch menu is priced at Bt3,500 (plus Bt2,500 for wine pairing)  and the 9-Course dinner at Bt5,800 (plus Bt3,000 for wine pairing). The dishes include creamed cod salad with strawberries, tomatoes, spicy bread crumble and celery juice; gentile pasta with Sicilian Caciocavallo cheese, lemongrass, roasted langoustine and crunchy pistachio waffle; and braised pork pancetta, with paprika, apple and capsicum compote and crescioni with rustic mustard.

As limited seating is available, gastronomes are advised to make advance reservations. Call (02) 207 7777, e-mail or visit
