Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Monday, 14 April 2014

Amporn Choeng-Ngam has been appointed as Executive Chef at the 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Chef Amporn will oversee all culinary operations at this delightful boutique hotel, including the exquisite signature Palette Restaurant.

The 30-suite property, featured on the 2013 Hot List for Best New Hotels in the World by Conde Nast Traveler (USA) and Worlds Greatest Hotels 2013 by Travel & Leisure (USA), is a SilverNeedle Collection Hotel.

Chef Amporn has a strong culinary pedigree, with extensive experience both in Thailand and internationally, having held positions in Ukraine, Bali and Saudi Arabia in addition to several of Thailands top properties.

In Saudi Arabia he worked for Princess Hassah bint Abdulaziz Al Saud as a private chef, overseeing a team of 38 chefs, as well as a purpose built health food kitchen for his spa cuisine.

This talented and passionate chef believes the secret to creating flavorful cuisine is all in the preparation, which can often be very time consuming. He uses special skillets to ensure food can be cooked without oil and has a meticulous marinating process to ensure all flavors are thoroughly infused in the cuisine he prepares. Chef Amporn places great emphasis on healthy food that is both flavorful and tasty. 

Chef Amporns signature dishes include:

Tuna tartare with fresh strawberries and goats cheese
Blue crab meat mango salad
Buckwheat and quinoa tabouli salad
Glazed snowfish with lotus seed puree
