Daniel Bucher has become Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park’s new Senior Executive Sous Chef, responsible for catering at the hotel’s extensive conference and banqueting facilities.

A German national hailing from the southern state of Bavaria, Chef Daniel grew up in the countryside, and this rural background is reflected in his cooking today. Chef Daniel believes that natural products and ingredients create the best dishes, and his time as an art student also gives him an eye for culinary style.

He received much media attention for a project called Pongion’s Kitchen in Germany, and also won awards during his time as Chef de Cuisine at the Reflexions Restaurant. Chef Daniel specializes in creative cookery, including molecular and fusion cuisine, with French, Spanish and Italian influences.
