“Learning as it is an endless process, and I never stop trying to invent new ways to highlight local Thai ingredients. I believe my passion for food, and continuous trial and error motto is what has led to my restaurant’s success today. Everyone can learn, so I pass along my knowledge to our staff whom I consider to be an important part of my family. They are locals with no cooking background, but I take the time to teach them everything from gardening, to cooking and serving a meal that they can be proud of.”
Full BioChef Nan is a self-taught chef who quit his job working for his family’s furniture manufacturing business to live out his life-long dream. His first restaurant was a small western cuisine bistro, but sadly it was not successful. He did not give up. Instead, he tried harder by learning molecular gastronomy cooking techniques from every source he could find. His hard work and perseverance paid off: he won an award at Iron Chef Thailand 2013.

The restaurant spends a lot of time sourcing high quality produce from local farmers and growers in Chiang Mai, and Thailand. Its purveyors include happy eggs from Happy Hen in Mae Tha District, Lamphun Province, and local vegetables from the Jing Jai Market Farmer Group. The latter sells only pesticide free and organic produce, and cares for their impact on the environment by saying “no” or reducing the consumption of plastic from the planting to the retailing process. Bee, who is the chef’s wife, visits the local market next to their home regularly to select special herbs and seasonal produce.
“Located just outside of Chiang Mai, this cosy restaurant serves creative modern Thai cuisine in a beautiful garden setting.”
Kim, the discoverer.
