On her new role as the new gastronomic ambassador of the award-winning restaurant, Chef Angela comments:
“I am honored to be given the opportunity to head up the kitchen at Park Society and keep Sofitel So Bangkok at the gastronomic forefront of the city. I have a very high expectation of the food I eat, prepare, and serve; my philosophy when it comes to cooking is that ingredients should be prepared and presented to their full potential. I really look forward to applying all my experience in the kitchen to create a multi-ethnic harmony of tastes, as we continue to set new culinary benchmarks at Sofitel So Bangkok.”
Park Society is Chef Angela’s third Sofitel posting in six years with the group; this latest appointment was immediately preceded by a stint in Sofitel St. James in London, where she was the sous chef at the hotel’s Brasserie Roux, and on the opening team of The Balcon. Prior to that, she was junior sous chef at the multi-award-winning fine dining restaurant Room 81 at Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach in Australia.
While working at Room 81, Chef Angela was part of the winning team that took home the Queensland Gold Box Challenge Winner trophy three years in a row. In what has been an illustrious career to date, she has also been bestowed accolades from the Wold Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) Global Chefs Challenge. Chef Angela was also a previous vice president of the Australian Culinary Federation Queensland.
Chef Angela brings a decade of experience in the kitchen to Park Society, spanning multiple disciplines from fine dining to a la carte, degustations, pastry, outside catering, and competitions. She trained at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons (Raymond Blanc’s two Michelin star restaurant in Oxford, England) and proving she is no stranger to the media world, Chef Angela used to host regular cooking segments on ABC Radio in Australia.
A dual Australian and British national, Chef Angela also speaks a bit of Japanese and French. In addition to her culinary mastery, she is an accomplished artist, producing paintings, drawings, and sculptures as part of her creative pursuits outside the kitchen.
