Award-winning restaurant nahm appoints chef Pim Techamuanvivit
nahm at COMO Metropolitan Bangkok, one of the first Thai restaurants to be awarded with a Michelin star, is welcoming Pim Techamuanvivit to head up its kitchen — making news as this multi-award-winning restaurant’s first female chef.
Launched under the guidance of David Thompson, nahm opened its doors in 2010 and quickly became one of Bangkok’s most celebrated eateries, consistently rated in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and in Asia’s 10 Best Restaurants.
Chef Pim intends to uphold nahm’s original roots in traditional Thai cuisine while also injecting her personal style and flavours to the menu.
A Bangkok native, Pim gave up her Silicon Valley career to pursue her passion for cooking. Her blog ‘Chez Pim’ was an instant success when it launched in 2003 and voted as one of the most influential food blogs in the world by The Guardian (UK).
Pim realised her dream of becoming a chef in 2014 with the launch of her first restaurant ‘Kin Khao’ in San Francisco, which won international acclaim. ‘Kin Khao’ received its first Michelin star the following year.
Pim attributes her cuisine to Thai culture and Thai women, who have a deep-rooted tradition in passing on their skills and recipes to the next generation. She is looking forward to developing closer relationships with farmers and artisan food producers across Thailand to ensure only the most exceptional produce makes it onto menus.
Pim Techamuanvivit says: “I want diners who visit nahm to feel as though they’ve been invited to the home of their Thai friends and to experience an authentic cuisine that’s rich in flavours and cooked from the heart”.
General Manager Rohaan Chandra adds: “We are very excited to introduce Pim to our guests as nahm continues its evolution at the forefront of authentic Thai cuisine.”
