Chef Max’s Story

Mr. Somrit Chitchonneepan or Chef Max’s passion in the kitchen started when he was 17 years old when he lent out a helping hand to a stranger in distress. “My story started when I was 17 years old. I found a guy who had been physically attacked and I took care of him, even though we didn’t know each other. The next day, I went to pick my mom up at her workplace and I bumped into the guy again. It turned out that he was working at the same place as my mom as an Italian chef! My mom mentioned to the guy that I was looking for a job, so the guy offered me a position at the restaurant, and that was when my career started. I worked there for 2 years, from a steward to a commis II. After that, I moved to a Thai restaurant called Baan Rim Pa for 5 years where I worked as a commis I. I learnt how to perfect both Italian and Thai dishes. After I felt like I had had enough experience, I wanted to strive for a better position at a 5-star hotel. My dream came true and I moved to Anantara Villa Phuket as a demi chef. All the menu items were European and I was always complimented on my lamb basil and grilled white snapper with seafood. I then moved to Iraya Resort and spa as an executive chef and later on to Baan Yin Dee Boutique Resort.”

     Chef Max dedicates his time to taking care of his customers, the food taste consistency, the kitchen standards and good teamwork to bring everyone the most pleasurable experience. He finds that when customers finish his food with a smile on their faces, it is the most rewarding feeling and the biggest motivation to better himself everyday in the kitchen.
