You got as a single woman this year, a Michelin star – what’s stopping you


Ms. Dalad Kambhu, under 309 star chefs in Germany, there are only ten women. Why do you think there are so few women in top restaurants?

I think that is changing. But it is still a process. I’ve met a lot of women, the chef wanted to be inside, but you have not taken the opportunity or were afraid that you can’t make it.

Plays the sexism in the kitchen is a role?

Definitely. I have had male employees, who did not want to follow my instructions and not taken seriously. Men have made about my decoration on the plate is funny, because I had done a flower. This Problem will only change if we are decent and nice to each other. This is in every industry the only way for a better future, in which men and women work.

How important is the Michelin star for your Restaurant “Kin Dee”?

I was very happy about it, not because I was the only woman on this evening, which has got a Michelin star, but because of a Thai Restaurant was excellent. And in a city where the people refuse, for Thai food and spend money. Now we have, in a sense, an international recommendation that you can spend on Thai food more.

you have kept up with model jobs and some are self-taught. You have never done a cooking training. How did you get into cooking?

the guests are not willing to spend money on Thai food and spend.

Exactly. The guests think Thai food has to be cheap. Because you know it is so out of your holiday. So I’m told often how Thai food should be, although I myself have lived there for 20 years.

How do you deal with it?

I clear, and explain what Thai food implies really. It is a question of the Balance between acidity, Sweetness and bitterness, the need to bring it perfectly in line. I cook because I grew up in Thailand. The food is my business card.

home-cooked Thai Food, the fun. And as the ingredients I use, the products that grow in the surrounding area.

But they serve Thai food. How does it work?

I am guided by the traditions of Thailand. There is also used only for what the season will bring. Since I make all the curry pastes and sauces yourself, it works very well. There is then a pig, for example, sorrel, salt, and Chili or spicy wild …

do you Like German food?

Yes, I love chips and like to eat dumplings.
