The Chef and the Brigade
“I grew up eating delicious meals prepared by my mother and grandmother. After graduating from The Culinary Institute of America and getting an MBA in Hospitality at Johnson & Wales University, I worked in several Michelin-star restaurants in NYC. At Le Du Wine Bar & Restaurant I’ve adapted what I’ve learned using local flavours and ingredients.”
Biography – Chef Thitid Tassanakajohn (Ton) at Le DuThe story behind Chef Ton’s multi-award winning cuisine begins with his childhood fascination with the herbs and flavours in his grandmother’s home-cooked meals, spawning his passion for cooking and creativity.
After initially obtaining a Bachelor of Economics from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Ton relocated to the USA to follow his dream of becoming a Chef.
Ton graduated The Culinary Institute of America with the highest marks in his class, and remained in the U.S. to cut his teeth in some of New York City’s most famous Michelin Star restaurants including Eleven Madison Park (Three Michelin stars), The Modern (One Michelin star) and Jean Georges (three Michelin stars).
Chef Ton soon realised that food and wine were an important marriage of tastes and experiences, and also went on to become a Certified Sommelier (CS) from the prestigious academy, The Court of Master Sommelier in New York City.
Inspired by his experiences in New York City, Ton returned to Thailand in 2013 where he revolutionised the Bangkok scene with his food, presentation and style.
Chef Ton now runs Le Du, one of Bangkok’s most exciting kitchens, to create modern Thai-inspired cuisine using only the ingredients that are of 100 percent Thai origin.
Le Du is consistently ranked amongst the best restaurants in Asia and the world in international publications such as BK Magazine, Top Table, CNN, Tatler Thailand, The Financial Times, Asia’s Best 100 Restaurants, Jancis Robinson and many more.
