Chef Bobby Chinn is set to dazzle local diners with a trio of unique dinners at Banyan Tree Bangkok’s Vertigo restaurant
Celebrity Chef Bobby Chinn arrives in town later this month for a three-day pop-up series of dinners at Banyan Tree Bangkok’s rooftop restaurant Vertigo. The event, powered by Gastronauts Asia, is part of the ‘Fine Dining Lovers Guest Chef Series’, initiated by Sanpellegrino and designed to demonstrate how the finest natural mineral water can be used to enhance the greatest of dining experiences. The series brings renowned chefs to Thailand from top dining destinations around the world and also showcases top chefs from Thailand’s creative restaurant scene.
Kiwi-born, with both Chinese and Egyptian heritage, Bobby Chinn was educated in England and worked on both coasts of the United States before travelling the world and eventually finding a base in Vietnam. There he opened the award-winning Restaurant Bobby Chinn and followed with the celebrated Bobby Chinn Saigon ten years later. He took the concept of modern Vietnamese cuisine to London in 2014, opening The House of Ho on Wardour Street to great acclaim. He now spends much of his time travelling the world as the host of Discovery TV shows World Cafe: Asia and Bobby Chinn Cooks Asia, as well as hosting Top Chef Middle East. He also published the cookbooks Wild Wild East: Recipes & Stories from Vietnam and Bobby Chinn’s Vietnamese Food.
Renowned for his enthusiasm for creating new dishes, Chef Bobby adds a signature “Bobby” twist to all of his creations. His residency at Vertigo will surely be no different, with a remarkable menu highlighting first-rate ingredients, such as oyster brûlée, tropical seafood ceviche, and Vietnamese spiced rack of lamb.
