  • (upbeat music)

  • - Being a chef for me,

  • it's the only thing I could imagine me doing in my life.

  • People ask me, what do you do when you're not cooking?

  • Cooking.

  • (upbeat music)

  • My name is Pam, I'm a chef in Bangkok

  • and I have a restaurant in my home called The Table.

  • I cater one table a night.

  • They can request whatever they want, no restrictions.

  • At first it started off with the people that I know,

  • my friends, my friends of friends,

  • the waiting list now is three months.

  • Jean Georges is a famous chef,

  • and he owns a 3-star Michelin restaurant in New York,

  • which I used to work at.

  • I decided to come back to Bangkok

  • and open my own restaurant,

  • and I didn't open a restaurant.

  • Instead I invite people to my own house.

  • (upbeat instrumental music)

  • Today, my guests requests cold crab pasta

  • and beef Wellington.

  • I will go shopping for ingredients.

  • I try to focus on local produce.

  • (speaking foreign language)

  • Bangkok is a very special place for a chef

  • because there is thousand and thousands of ingredients here.

  • And the flavor of each ingredient is really distinctive.

  • And then I will come back home,

  • and prepare it a day ahead.

  • I usually finish about 80% of the food,

  • so when the guests come, nothing is chaotic

  • in the kitchen anymore, everything is set.

  • (instrumental music)

  • I got two helpers in the kitchen,

  • and service people for front of the house.

  • Everything is clean and ready to serve.

  • (speaking foreign language) (upbeat instrumental music)

  • I'm glad that people see that I'm successful,

  • but I don't think that I'm successful to the top yet.

  • If you think you're successful, you stop learning.

  • Being a chef or being a cook,

  • you always have to learn new things.

  • I just love what I do, I think it comes out in the food.

  • If people come here and they go back

  • with smile and full stomach, I'm just happy.

  • Being a chef is not a job for me,

  • it's my passion.

  • Bye!

  • (laughing)

  • (musical tones)

(upbeat music)
