Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok is privileged to welcome, arguably the world’s leading exponent of “planetary cooking”, Thierry Marx as guest chef, 29 April to 4 May. One of the most innovative experimentalist chefs in France, Thierry, a two-star Michelin chef is the founder of his namesake restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental Paris. With his ‘modern alchemist’ approach to innovative cooking, Thierry draws deep inspiration from France and Asia. A Buddhist, a black belt Judo teacher and Jujitsu aficionado, he has attained cult status as a pioneer of molecular gastronomy. His experiments with cryonics, freeze-drying and more have seen him push the boundaries of his art form while creating wonderful dishes across Europe, Asia and Australia. At Lord Jim’s expect avant-garde textures and flavors for which Thierry is renowned.
