Khamsene (Sen) and Khamhoung (Kham) are both from Vientiene, Laos.
When asked about their jobs, both answer with the same affirmative tone that they love cooking, the passion that drives them speaks many languages. Both are traditionalist at heart in the kitchens, but they have opened their minds and help the A Team produce our New Style Dishes with vigor and “Gana”.
Not only is Sen versed in Laotian Cuisine, he is also a deft hand at Chinese and European techniques.
Sen´s Crispy Salmon and Sweetcorn Fishcakes are served with a Chinese style Plum Sauce, which he adds Chillies soaked in Sugar Syrup.
Kham keeps a cool head in our hot kitchen and is stationed in the hottest part. He works the Flames with the help of the others and is responsible for most of the “Wok Work”.
Away from the Wok, Kham prepared a traditional Custard steamed within a Pumpkin. Served either warm or cold (better), the custard has a lovely texture which goes well with the velvet pumpkin.
