Apr. 1 - 15, 2021 | Soneva Kiri

Growing up surrounded by delicious home-cooked meals, Thitid’s mother and grandmother’s flavors has contributed largely to his passion in cooking. Upon the completion of his Economics degree from Chulalongkorn University, he took off to USA to persuade his dream at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. The top-score graduate continued to receive an MBA in Hospitality from Johnson & Wales University. During his time in New York, Thitid has worked at several Michelin-starred restaurants, including Eleven Madison Park, The Modern and Jean Georges. Not only does he has passion in food, but his enthusiasm in wine also led him to become a Certified Sommelier (CS) from the respected Court of Master Sommelier. He has brought home experiences and vision to elevate Thai cuisine and give it a stand among world’s leading cuisines. Now the rising young chef is running one of the most exciting kitchens in Bangkok, Le Du (#37 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017), as well as an always-reliable comfort Thai food home, Baan.
