Published on Jan 31, 2011

Six top chefs from some of Phuket’s premier luxury resorts are joining forces for a charity dinner the Paresa Resort, in aid of underprivileged women and girls.

The gastronomic fundraiser will take place on 25 March, with tickets priced at THB4,000 (US$130) net. Themed ‘Six of the Best’, the event will showcases the culinary talents of Paresa Resort’s James Stanton, Thomas Smith of Sheraton Grande Laguna, Amanpuri’s Stefano Artosin, Justin Maiklem and Jimmy Karl of Anantara Phuket Villas, Silvano Amolini of Dusit Thani Laguna and David Hamilton of Banyan Tree Phuket. Together they will prepare a six-course meal.

The event starts with canapés on the lawn of the Paresa overlooking the Andaman Sea. Dinner is at Paresa’s Diavolo restaurant, which offers spectacular 27- degree ocean views. The event is also being supported by their suppliers who will donate all the menu ingredients and wine, ensuring that all proceeds go to “The Good Shepherd Sisters” charity.

There are seven charity organisations under “The Good Shepherd Sisters”. They help women and children who have been abused, are caught up in human trafficking or the sex industry, are poor or suffering from HIV. They are given shelter, counselling and the opportunity to earn a living. Goods made by the women are sold at Paresa's boutique as well as some of the other top resorts in Phuket.

The ‘Six of the Best’ fundraiser is planned to become an annual event at Paresa. For reservation details please send email to
