About David Tamburini

Following his recent position as Executive Chef at Giando Italian Restaurant, Hong Kong, David’s passion for food, its preparation and cooking, combined with his continuing strong interest in Asia led him to Thailand.  Back in Sicily, David studied the different components and traditional recipes of southern Italy and expressed his desire to give to them a more contemporary flavour, whilst developing a personal cooking style based upon the respective ingredients and techniques.  Creative flair, a combination of traditional Italian recipes and his own renowned creations form the basis of David’s menu at La Scala. “It is indeed a great honour to be part of The Sukhothai family at such an iconic restaurant as La Scala, and I want to satisfy our diners with truly contemporary Italian flavours he says.”
