    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 26/10/2018

    » Pastry chef Arisara "Papier" Chongphanitkul was crowned Bangkok's Best Pastry Chef 2018 by BK Top Tables earlier this year and it is not an accolade that is easy to come by. Known for modernising Thai desserts, chef Papier trained at the Gastronomicom pastry school in France. Her desserts are often inspired by her working stints alongside pastry greats such as Sadaharu Aoki and Hugues Pouget in Paris, as well as Laurent Gerbaud in Brussels, but always with a Thai twist. In January this year, Chef Papier became the first Thai woman to compete in the international Ladies World Pastry Championship in Rimini, Italy. As group pastry chef for the Issaya group, she lends her creations to Saawaan, Issaya La Patisserie (for which she launched a cookbook last year), Issaya Siamese Club, Baan Phadthai and Le Cochon Blanc. And, for the jet setters, chef Papier also caters the desserts on Thai Smiles. Embarking on a new path in her culinary journey, chef Papier will soon launch her own patisserie, "Ici", where her love for everything praline and other sweets will shine through.

    Must love dogs

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/10/2018

On the other hand, they've also had successful stories like that of a pup named Nor. On their sixth anniversary of Bodhi Dog Rescue and Shelter GURU caught up with Tina Maria, founder and owner.
