About the Head Chef


As a Head Chef, Chef Joe brings years of culinary expertise to the kitchen of Otto Italian Restaurant, and together with his vibrancy in his food offering. At a young age, Chef Joe was inspired by his father who is a chef, and with his aspirations, it led him to the path of gastronomy. Chef Joe took on his first job at the age of 15 years old in Australia. He came back to Thailand after that and started to work as a commis chef at the Athenee Hotel where he developed and refined his culinary techniques.


Chef Joe's repertoire includes five-star hotels, prestigious Italian restaurants and more, which enabled him to be well-versed in both local and Italian cuisine. To stay relevant in today’s ever-changing food scene, Chef Joe equips himself with skills by going for courses, and experiments with food innovation.

Chef Joe's favourite is the Seafood risotto, and he recommends everyone to try The “Risotto ai Frutti di Mare” at the Otto Italian Restaurant.


Some cooking tips from Chef Joe

  • Right temperature to each ingredient and a boiling pot for pasta has to be checked all the time for the saltiness and water temperature.

  • Garlic is the most important ingredient for Italian food and you have to be very delicate in cooking them with the right temperature.

  • The real Italian food is just fresh ingredient and seasoning with salt and pepper, so people may not appreciate the taste at first time eating it. You will need time and open-minded to understand the taste and appreciate the real flavour.
