thai cooking: Cooking News and Chef's Secrets

 Tummanoon Punchun at The Boathouse


Tummanoon Punchun is famous on Phuket for the "Eurasian" cuisine he offers at the Boathouse Wine and Grill. His talent and enthusiasm for Thai recipes has made him a guest chef each year at the Swiss Chef's Association. Every weekend he can be found sharing his knowledge of Thai food with students who enroll in the Boathouse Cooking Classes.

"Thai food has different tastes and flavours in one dish but the taste is always light," explains Chef Tammanoon. "I point out the nutritional value of Thai cuisine to my students as the spicy herbs and curry paste help reduce fat and lower cholesterol." All recipes at the Boathouse are Chef Tummanoon's own and include deep fried shrimp crepe, steamed curry mousse with fish in pandanus leaves, and spicy minced chicken salad with herbs and toasted rice powder.

Chef Tummanoon received his training at the Hotel and Tourism Training Institute in Chonburi province. Later he joined the Phuket Yacht Club as a cook and was promoted to Sous Chef at the Baan Boran Hotel in the Golden Triangle. He has received special training in Royal Thai traditional cooking with famed Chef, Chalie Amatyakul of The Oriental Hotel, Bangkok.

His history with the Boathouse began in 1988 and by 1994, Chef Tummanoon was named Executive Chef. He is highly skilled at preparing European foods, with French cuisine being his specialty. 

He pays special attention to staples of European meals that are often mishandled in Asia such as dairy and bakery products. But Chef Tummanoon's great love is Thai cuisine and he works to ensure that his kitchen at the Boathouse produces nothing less than the very best
