Meet our chef
Chef de Cuisine Somnuk Insiripong (known by his nickname Lek) was born and raised in the province of Isan, northwest of Thailand. Having developed a passion for cooking at a young age, Lek learnt the basics of Thai Cuisine from his mother. She showed him how cooking food wrapped in banana leaves can enhance flavours, as well as how to create his own curry paste by using a mortar and pestle to create and personalize his own spices.
To perfect his passion, Lek pursued the Oriental Hotel culinary school at the renown Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok.
Today, Lek enjoys sharing his love of food from his native homeland with you.
