Since beginning of February I work on Koh Yao Noi in a superb hotel as Executive Chef. It has been a complete lifestyle change as the hotels is a lot smaller than most of the previous places I worked but that is exactly what I was looking for.
Here we do things different. I am not just a paper tiger that sits in the office most of the day.....even so there is still a of of paperwork to be done, I am actually cooking a lot more than I did in the past couple of years. But now I am doing evenings at The Hilltop restaurant with a maximum of 24 guests (usually the full moon dinners. I am doing Chef's Tables cooking intimately in front of the guests and sometimes I just stand at the crepe section on the breakfast buffet doing crepes....something that is very calming I find...
No worry you will hear a lot more about all these projects very soon. I actually have a little more time to write now, the stress level has gone down and the enjoyment of being a chef has gone up
We already had our first guest chef and there are more to come this year...of course you will hear about them too
