MASTER CHEF, 2-MICHELIN STAR THIERRY DRAPEAU from Nantes, France will be featured at La VIE – Creative French Cuisine at VIE Hotel Bangkok, MGallery by Sofitel for three days Jan. 30 – Feb. 1, 2019.
He expresses his talent in a style called “cuisine of the soil” for its authentic jus-based dishes with a highly concentrated taste, using local produce from the soil and the sea nearby.
In Chef Thierry’s cooking, only the highest quality produce is used and his dishes maintain a lightness, low in butter but high in flavour. He also prefers using flowers and herbs as opposed to spices for his cuisine.
He began his own ambitious culinary career as Chef de Partie at the age of 21. Working alongside a number of renowned chefs and set the highest standards possible for his cooking, eventually opening his own restaurant, the Thierry Drapeau Logis de la Chabotterie in Saint-Sulpice-le-Verdon, France. Chef Thierry has garnered universal recognition of excellence, holding a coveted two Michelin stars for the past eight years.
According to Chef Thierry, a dish must be worked on like a wine, taking time to look for “a balance combining herbaceous and floral notes; to work on the acidity, the bitterness and the sweetness”.
His 7–Course Michelin Star Set Dinner, served at 7 pm, costs 6,750 THB per person for food only, and 8,750 THB per person for food and wine pairing
