Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Max Boonthanakit began his culinary career working in professional kitchens at the young age at 13. After graduating high school, Boonthanakit went on to attend the Culinary Institute of America in New York and began working in well-renowned Los Angeles restaurants including The Bazaar by José Andrés, Michael Voltaggio’s ink., République and Keto Restaurant. Boonthanakit has traveled the world and his experiences have displayed themselves fare gaining his own unique style of Southern-Asian cuisine. This style was partially formed through his upbringing in Atlanta, mixed with his Thai-Chinese background, and honed through his experience at places like the two-star Michelin Gaggan and the one-star Michelin Relæ. Boonthanakit gained critical acclaim as Chef de Cuisine at Los Angeles hotspot, Nightshade, for his playful take on savory fare and highly innovative and experiential desserts. Honored as one of Eater’s Young Guns in 2019, you can now find Boonthanakit redefining the dessert scene as Head Pastry Chef at the newly opened Blue by Alain Ducasse in Bangkok, Thailand.
