Arnaud Dunand *
Chef Arnaud Dunand Sauthier, a master of French
cuisine and culinary icon in Bangkok’s restaurant
scene, found his passion for cooking during his
childhood in the mountains of the Savoie region,
Starting from the tender age of 12, Chef
Arnaud instantly fell in love with cooking and
ultimately this is where his culinary journey began.
His journey has brought him to work in some of
the most esteemed kitchens and with some
renowned culinary talents globally, including
Marc Veyrat, Jacques Lameloise and Jean
Francois Piège at Hôtel de Crillon.
In 2012, Chef Arnaud was given the helm of
Le Normandie’s acclaimed kitchen, where he
combined his expertise of classic French cooking
techniques together with the best produce
sourced directly from France. He was able to
propel Le Normandie to new gastronomic heights
and earned two Michelin stars in the very first
edition of the Michelin Guide Bangkok in 2017,
something he maintained until his departure from
this world-renowned establishment.
“During my 25 years in the industry, I have always
been known for my classic French cuisine, using
only French ingredients. After my travels and
having spent time in Asia, the exciting cultural
diversity opened up my senses to reroute my
culinary journey. In Maison Dunand, I would like
to introduce you to something more personal; a
cuisine inspired from my travels around the globe
and the combination of 2 memorable regions in
France; Savoie and Brittany."
