Corporate Thai Chef of the Fine-Dining Restaurants Saffron worldwide of Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts*****
Top chef Renu Homsombat from Bangkok has been delighting people internationally with Contemporary Thai Cuisine of the highest order. Furthermore, in her capacity as Corporate Thai Chef, she holds the culinary sceptre in all eleven “Saffron” gourmet restaurants at the five-star Banyan Trees hotel group in eight countries. In signature dishes such as Yum Pla Salmon or her Massaman curry with short ribs braised for six hours, she superbly combines perfectly matched authentic aromas from her home country with European inspiration. During her eventful career, she has gained high acclaim as a guest chef, amongst others under three-star chef Harald Wohlfahrt at the Schwarzwaldstube.
Renu Homsombat’s exceptional culinary skills have also gained her an outstanding reputation in Switzerland, mainly recently alongside two-star chef Stefan Heilemann at the Ecco Restaurant at the luxury hotel Atlantis by Giardino in Zurich. As main components, she combines love of detail and perfection with the local award-winning gastronomy. Yet she does not reach for the stars herself: “Seeing the guests smile and enjoy my Thai cuisine and the uniqueness of Saffron food around the world is the greatest recognition of all for me”.
