Pattaya, the 27th of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Once again the Dusit-D2 Hotel on South Pattaya’s Second Road has excelled itself by staging another excellent “Italian Wine Dinner,” which again included a “Pinocchio Pantomime” show. The evening started early with pre-dinner cocktails & champagne plus pizza appetizers, in the Dusit-D2’s ultra-modern “Deep Bar,” and there was manager Paulo, showing his wide range of talents by controlling the audio system.

 

Everyone then retired to the relaxing “Sea” outdoor restaurant around the large swimming pool in the courtyard that is complimented with palm trees. Then came another superb menu, which was under the guidance of Dusit Manager Paulo, so the entrée saw tuna cappaccio with Parma ham, grana cheese shavings and a fine Lungarotti 2007 Chardonnay.

 

The grilled lasagna of chicken-ragu was complimented with a 2007 Lungarotti Sangiovese dell Umbria, and this was followed up by a tasty sweet basil & lime sorbet. Then as a culinary diversion, came Part-1 of the Pinocchio play titled “The Fox and the Cat,” which was directed by Italian actor Maurizio Mistretta, who also played the part of the “Fire King.” Surprisingly, the other four actors were all the Dusit-D2’s own staff, who performed very creditably, after a month of tuition & rehearsal by Maurizio.

Then final main dish was a choice of roast ‘korabuta’ pork chops with mushroom salad, or fillet of garoupa, with an addition to the wine menu of Lungarotti 2006 merlot. The desserts were crafted by the Dusit’s master chef, with such tempting specials as Sicilian orange cake, marinated winter orange with candied tangerine, or special chacaca “al mandarin.” Then came the final act of Pinocchio’s “The Fox and The Cat,” faithfully played by Chinatee (as Pinocchio), Miss Malisa (as the sexy cat), Savaphon (as the Fox) and Veerapong (as the bird).

So the highly satisfied patrons of this “Pinocchio Wine Dinner,” stayed on to chat and enjoy an espresso, cappucino or choose from a selection of fine teas, to wind up an incredible evening. These Dusit-D2 dinners are not just another dinner evening, but include an entertaining night of “art theatre,” exquisite food and some of the world’s best wines, that would delight any gourmet..
