Thailand’s Embassy of Ukraine is teaming up with celebrity chef Yurii Kovryzhenko to whip up an all-you-can-eat dinner on Saturday at The Emerald Hotel.

Priced at THB1,299 (US$35), the unlimited feast is an ideal chance for those not familiar with the cuisine, and half of the money will go to the Ukraine government’s United 24 fundraising program.

 Reservations are mandatory and can be made by calling 02-276-4567, Ext. 8413.

Since Russia’s invasion in February, culinary champion of Ukrainian cuisine Kovryzhenko has been raising awareness and assisting the cause of those affected by the war. Earlier this year, the chef also opened his bistro Mriya — roughly translated as “dream” — in London to further his support for the war’s refugees.

The Emerald Hotel is located a few minutes from MRT Huai Khwang.
