Steven is a very dedicated Chef who made his hobby to his passion project. Empty Plates is literally his home that he decided to renovate and transform into his own food lab, welcoming curious foodies to taste his creations in a laid back setting.
Creative, innovative, ambitious with no fear of crossing boundaries, because there are none in cooking & always prioritizing taste over anything else, that is the way he would describe his approach to cooking.
Being culinary shaped by the influences of growing up in Europe, surrounded by great cooks in the family and moving to his mother’s home country in 2009, he became fascinated with local ingredients, the differences in Asian cuisines and fundamental cooking. After years of privately cooking, experimenting, working on his craft he was able to gain valuable experiences from several learning stints in well-established Restaurants in Thailand, he opened Empty Plates in April 2018 where he serves his style of food, which is unique in its own ways.
“Let the classics be the classics, respect them for what they are. Be innovative, create & don’t be fearful to fail, because limits like fear in cooking are just a culinary illusion”
