Pots ‘n Pans in Good Food Asia by Cameron Stauch
- posted in: News Pots'n Pans
In 2010 chef Felix Eppisser and his restaurant managing wife, Lucia, sold their Michelin starred restaurant Rigiblick in Zurich, Switzerland and travelled to Asia eventually making their home in Yangon, Burma. At the same time, Thao Nguyen, a graduate of KOTO, a social enterprise that provides hospitality training to disadvantaged youth, was busy dreaming up plans for Pots ‘n Pans, a restaurant to highlight innovative Vietnamese cuisine. In fact, Felix helped Thao design the layout for the Pots ‘n Pans kitchen.
Chef Felix recently took some time away from his celebrated restaurant in Yangon, Le Planteur, to do some training sessions with KOTO students and to prepare a multi course degustation dinner.
I spoke with Felix and Thao just before guests arrived for the special event to shoot the video below.
