Like Picasso without a paint-brush or Shakespeare bereft of his beloved quill, a master chef without a kitchen in which to work his culinary magic is a sorry sight indeed. But fear not, the ever-resourceful and innovative 9th Floor Restaurant and Bar in Patong is counteracting these trying times with a series of ‘Chefs Without Kitchens’ promotions in which they will showcase some of Thailand’s foremost culinary masters doing what they do best…………..making us all laugh and enjoy ourselves again with magical cuisine and shared fun times.
Each month, the famous 9th Floor Restaurant situated in the heart of Patong will bring in a top, Thailand-based chef to prepare a fabulous menu and showcase their magical talents. Read about the 9th Floor here
The choice of these top chefs features both those currently without work, as well as those stranded at home because their normal kitchen is closed, even though they may still be employed.
The 9th Floor is delighted to welcome Ian John Thomason winner of Thailand’s coveted ‘Iron Chef’ as the first promoted ‘Chef Without Kitchens’ preparing a special menu on the evenings of Thursday 10th, Friday 11th and Saturday 12th of September.
Chef Ian is no stranger to our island, having plied his trade at the erstwhile Sheraton Grande Laguna Luxury Collection Phuket.
Chef Ian started his journey in the capital, Bangkok at Pullman Bangkok King Power Hotel in 2008 and his most recent assignment was at the fabled Amanpuri resort. Prior to that held Executive Chef positions at the Banyan Tree Phuket and the Luxury Collection, Naka Island, Phuket.
Chef Ian graduated from college in England, starting his professional career at the famous Gleneagles Hotel Resort in Scotland, then went on to cook in some of London’s most renowned kitchens including The Dorchester, The Savoy, and finally Sofitel London St. James, where he worked under the legendary Michelin Star Chef Albert Roux.
Every month the 9th Floor will bring you another stellar ‘Chef Without Kitchens’ preparing another specially-crafted gourmet sensation, and ten percent of every menu price goes to a charity chosen but the month’s celebrity chef. What could be better than that…. beat the Covid blues by enjoying fabulous food and wine, in glorious surroundings while helping out those in need?
