Bangkok International Taste Experience
13 March 2018 - Bangkok, Thailand.
The Bangkok International Taste Experience (BITE) launched at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok for a gathering of world-class chefs and food enthusiasts from around the globe. Foodies joined together for one one-off culinary extravaganza in which chef presentations and panel discussions pondered the question: “What’s Next? The Future of Global Gastronomy”.
