Lord Jim's at The Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok is welcoming the world's leading exponent of "planetary cooking", Thierry Marx as guest chef, from April 29-May 4.
One of the most innovative experimental chefs in France, Thierry, a two-starred Michelin chef, is the founder of Sur Mesure restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental, Paris. With his "modern alchemist" approach to innovative cooking, Thierry draws deep inspiration from France and Asia.

Experiments with cryonics, freeze-drying and more have seen him push the boundaries of his art form while creating wondrous dishes across Europe, Asia and Australia.
