On March 29th 2012 Beach Republic, the ocean club, resort and residences located on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand will play host to the final gala dinner of the inaugural Samui Fine Dining Festival, with a special dinner by renowned Chef Hervé Frerard.

As part of the first Samui Fine Dining Festival, Beach Republic is excited to welcome Chef Hervé Frerard. Chef Frerard heads up one of the top French restaurants in Bangkok, Le Beaulieu – an unashamedly French fine dining establishment that is without question the go-to French restaurant in Thailand.

Growing up surrounded by a passion for food and produce with a family of wine-makers and a brother who is a three-star Michelin-starred chef – Hervé was destined to become engulfed in the epicurean dream. With a philosophy based on his 3 pillars – friendship, food, and wine, Hervé cooks with a dedication and energy that results in food to astound the senses. Putting his own slight touches on the classics, Hervé honors the same base flavors and notes, but elevates French cuisine to new culinary heights in both presentation and taste.

Asked for his comments on the event, President of Beach Republic Tim Dean-Smith said, “We’re thrilled to be a participant in the inaugural Samui Fine Dining Festival and excited to play host to the talents of Chef Hervé Frerard.

Starting at 8pm, Hervé will be presenting a six-course degustation menu partnering every dish with a wine worthy of the flavors. From Slow-Cooked fresh Phuket Lobster, black olive purée & tamarind, saffron potato and crustace juice to Sous-vide Ocean Trout with beetroot accompanied by fresh garden bean foam – his menu is set to exhilarate your palate and satisfy your soul.
