Thailand Dinner
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, August 20, 2020
New normal better than ever
" Chef Jay is no stranger to fine French cuisine "

It would not be controversial to say that 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us! Times like these make organisations such as the Chaîne des Rotisseurs all the more important to a dining industry facing unprecedented challenges.

With happy hearts we swarmed the cosy Stage Restaurant in Bangkok, the location for our first Chaîne dinner since March.

The festivities, which introduced newly-promoted Bailli Molchaya Techapaibul, were “staged” at a classical but innovative French restaurant. Stage is also one of the few to be led by a female chef, Jay Sangsingkaew. She brought with her the brigade from the dearly departed L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon Bangkok.

Chef Jay is no stranger to fine French cuisine having trained at the two-Michelin-starred L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Paris and served as part of the opening team of its Bangkok outpost. At Stage she has kept her creations classical yet thoughtful, offering creative riffs on traditional dishes.
