David Thompson

Master Chef

David knows what he's talking about when it comes to south-east Asia. The Australian chef is considered an authority on Thai cuisine: he opened Darley Street Thai and Sailors Thai in Sydney, before taking London by storm with his Michelin-starred restaurant Nahm. In the midst of opening his latest venture – a second branch of Nahm at the Metropolitan Bangkok – the Smiths sent him off on a stress-relieving break to Siem Reap. David is also the author of two comprehensive tomes, Thai Food and Thai Street Food, neither of which you'd ever want to have to carry in your luggage.
