Big news: Bangkok native and chef-owner Pim Techamuanvivit (~KIN KHAO~) has been named chef at Bangkok’s ~NAHM~, an extraordinary restaurant I enjoyed immensely during my visit to Thailand last year. (The restaurant first opened in London, and then inside the COMO Metropolitan Bangkok; chef David Thompson, an Aussie, is moving on to “focus on his global food business Aylmer Aaharn”).

Today’s New York Times piece mentions Pim “plans to split her time between the two cities and the two restaurants, though she isn’t sure of her exact schedule; she has been in Bangkok for just over a week.” She’s going to be touring farms in the north and connecting with producers, and plans to renovate the kitchen, which will close the restaurant temporarily before it reopens with her menu, updates, and more. Congrats on this amazing news, Pim!
