guest chef Pas'S Healthy Recipes at The Brampton

Chef Pas is available for hire most weekends at the Brampton. let us know if you want him to come and we will organise. 



Chef Pas is a Thai Native who moved to New York City in 1992. After finishing an MFA at Pratt Institute, his love for New York and its food got the best of him and so he has been living there ever since. 

He ate everything from every buzzed-about restaurant. He gained weight and got sick before he realized that the expression, "you are what you eat", was actually true.

He used to live by the words of Alexander Woolcott, "All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening." So when he adopted a plant-based diet, he shocked and saddened all his friends.

Pas brings creativity and a personal touch to create engaging, memorable events. He champions plant-based local businesses by providing a platform for them to reach new audiences.

Pas has been feeding his friends at his Sunday brunch for years and is now feeding the curious minds and stomachs at the various pop-up restaurant in New York City and at The Brampton. His approach is to have fun with food and bring joy & comfort using local ingredients through his dishes.
