A Night with Chefs at the Edge

A TOTAL OF THB 75,321 (USD 2,325) WAS RAISED FOR THE PURE BLUE FOUNDATION

Aleenta Phuket Resort in Phang Nga recently hosted the cream of the culinary talent in Greater Phuket to cook for the environment at its stylish beachfront restaurant, The Edge. Working with a theme that blended sustainability, local sourcing and fine wines by Ambrose paired with each dish, four of Phuket's most talented chefs put on an evening to remember for resort guests and residents of Greater Phuket who came to the event to be wowed.

The Edge's own Chef Alex Bitterling was joined by Chef Sandro Aguilera of Iniala, Chef Belinda Tuckwell of The Pavilions and Chef Peter Webber of les diables – each of whom produced a signature dish to celebrate the occasion and delight diners with their innovation and fine creativity.

A grand total of THB75,321 (USD2,325) was raised for the Pure Blue Foundation marine charity project, founded by AHMS The Collection, which works to nurture the indigenous and endangered leatherback turtle population in Phang Nga. All of the funds will be put towards continuing its work, with the chef's contributing to the fundraising efforts for free. The Chefs On The Edge creative collaboration is the first in a series of culinary events designed to raise funds for Pure Blue Foundation, with the next being held in two months time.

Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!

An amazing experience! We were a large group for a wedding and it was such a nice experience. I actually ended up sleeping on hammock. The food was really good, and all the service was amazing.
