Chef Chayawee (Berm) Sutcharitchan’s Bio


Chef Chayawee Sutcharitchan, or Chef Berm, is a Thai national who fell in love with gastronomy when he began his journey in 2004, in the United States of America, where he thrived working in the kitchen.

He obtained his certificate in Culinary Arts, at the Collin County Community College in the United States of America. Despite his prior education in computer science at Texas A&M University, Chef Chayawee decided to continue his culinary journey.

In 2006, Chef Chayawee returned to Bangkok, Thailand, where he continues to express his love and passion for gastronomy. He has gained his work experience and developed his culinary skills through numerous five-star hotels. His work experience highlights include time at The Landmark Hotel in Bangkok, where he worked as Chef de Partie, and Intercontinental Bangkok, where he worked as Junior Sous Chef for two years before he joined Kempinski’s family.

Chef Chayawee joined Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok in 2010 as Sous Chef at Brasserie Europa. Then in 2012, he transferred to the hotel’s signature restaurant, Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, as Sous Chef. After two years of hard work and devotion, Chef Chayawee was promoted to Head Chef of Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin in 2014. He invites guests to enjoy an extraordinary culinary performance as chefs choreograph different tastes of basic Thai ingredients from the original recipes in daring combinations. Besides exquisitely composed food presentation, he uses mostly global cooking techniques, and the familiar flavours of traditional dishes are maintained.

“Cooking is certainly my passion, and learning new cooking techniques and implementing them to create our dishes is always fun. The gastronomy trend has changed rapidly these last few years, and you can never stop learning or seeking new things. Nowadays, a dining experience is not just about the food itself; it first has to appeal to the eyes of the diners, along with its scent and taste. Also important are the ambience of the restaurant and the service. Never forget that the consistency of the food and the presentation are also important. Thankfully,my knowledge in computer science has helped in terms of scaling the ingredients and plating,” said Chef Chayawee, Head Chef of Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok.
