Cheese & Wine Tasting at Le Beaulieu Restaurant – Bangkok

Friday, May 30th, 2008

I had the great pleasure last evening to attend a French cheese tasting with over 60 varieties spread out on tables in the bar and restaurant of Le Beaulieu, and of course, inevitably, the odd glass of wine, which flowed like water! This is the third in a series of French cheese tastings at Herve Frerard’s restaurant on the ground floor of the Sofitel Residence on Soi nineteen.

As usual, this tasting was well populated in spite of torrential rain and a 2500 baht ticket (well worth it). On the last cheese tasting there was a pre-election day mix-up, regarding whether alcohol could be served or not, and the verdict came down at the final hour that indeed alcohol could not be served. The hundred or so cheeses remained in the restaurant while the wine and a couple of dozen types of cheese were relocated to a private residence in the hotel belonging to one of the guests.
