Situated in the Garden Wing of the hotel, Le Normandie offers breathtaking views over the Chao Phraya River through floor-to-ceiling windows and a unique air of elegant sophistication with vintage crystal chandeliers and stunning flower arrangements. Creatively presented with delicious seasonal tastes and flavours, the legendary Le Normandie specialises in modern French cuisine. Using only the freshest ingredients, many from the Royal Projects in the north of Thailand and the best produce that Chef Arnaud’s native Normandie and Brittany regions have to offer, highlights include marbled foie gras with prune and toasted brioche; Chateaubriand of beef from Salers with truffle sauce; and parmentier of beef cheek with winter truffle.  He also believes in creating dishes with purely regional ingredients, such as Brittany Lobster roasted a la minute and served with native buck weed, apple, cider and seaweed of Brittany.
 
Chef Arnaud has over a decade of experience in fine dining, having worked with renowned culinary talent worldwide, including Georges Blanc in Vonnas; Marc Veyrat in L’Auberge de L’Eridan; and Emile Jung at Crocodile. He also spent three years at Maison Lameloise in Bourgogne before venturing to Le Crillon in Paris under the leadership of Jean-Francois Piege. At only 26 years of age, Chef Arnaud became the Executive Chef at Chateau de la Tour du Puits in Chambery.
 
Now aged 32, Chef Arnaud is delighted to share his culinary passion with Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, where he takes Le Normandie’s loyal diners to new heights of fine dining excellence and delights and introduces a new generation of culinary explorers to the sophistication of his native haute cuisine. For this extraordinary young talent whose personality is literally as big as his heart, his passion for food is as spectacular as his zest for life. “I am a young man myself who is travelling the world in search of new experiences and gastronomy, and Le Normandie is my opportunity to share the best of my culinary journey so far with fellow travellers,” says Chef Arnaud.
