Born into a family of cooks, Chef Sujira ‘Aom’ Pongmorn grew up around food. Following her education at the School of The Oriental Hotel Apprenticeship Program (OHAP) at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, Aom started her professional career in the hotel’s famous Lord Jim restaurant. During this time she had the opportunity to assist various Michelin-starred chefs such as Juan Amador and Thomas Keller during their guest appearances at Le Normandie.
Aom continued her fine dining experience at Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, where she learned a different approach to Thai food, immersing herself in the molecular techniques of Michelin-starred Chef Henrik Yde Andersen. She later moved to another Bangkok institution, award-winning Issaya Siamese Club, where she worked as executive chef under famed Thai chef Ian Kittichai. Following this, she was part of the pre-opening team of The House on Sathorn.
In 2016, Aom opened Baan Phadthai together with restaurateur Frederic Meyer. Specialising in Thailand’s famous national dish, the restaurant has won several accolades and was awarded a Bib Gourmand in the inaugural Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018. The Baan Phadthai Cookbook is slated for release in 2018.
