Working in Paradise

As a chef you can never complain about where you work as the world is literally your oyster and you can go out there and explore. I do that since nearly 30 years and I am not tired of it. So after working for three and a half years in a paradise called The Maldives, I changed location to an new paradise called Thailand.

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...

But then there is a lot more to the job than just paperwork and cooking. We have an organic chicken farm, not under my supervision, but we need to make sure that we get enough eggs for our restaurants and breakfasts. We got a couple of goats, so in month to come we will start with goat milk, yogurt and cheese. Our mushroom hut has just been renovated and we got the first batch in....and of course the chefs garden that has increased in size over the last two month.

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

So in summary I can say that I tremendously enjoyed the past two month and I am looking forward telling you a lot more about the happenings on this little sleepy island close to Phuket
