Michelin-Starred Chef Jeff Ramsey

American-Japanese Chef Jeff Ramsey earned his first Michelin star rating at the age of 32 in Tokyo. His foundation of excellence in Japanese cuisine stems from his training with Masayoshi Kazato, the official Sushi Ambassador of Japan before becoming the first non-Japanese to be awarded the title World Champion Master Sushi Chef.

From then Ramsey took a detour from his Japanese roots to discover and develop a bold experimental style that was cultivated by renowned Chef José Andrés, protégé of the legendary Catalonian chef Ferran Adrià of elBullí. Thereafter, he was handpicked by Japanese ‘super chef’ Hide Yamamoto as Executive Chef of Tapas Molecular Bar at the 6-star Mandarin Oriental Tokyo hotel. It was at this role that Ramsey explored his own style of modernist cooking, earning and retaining a Michelin Star.

With this Michelin background, Ramsey travelled around the world and has been featured at numerous pop-up restaurants and also a sought-after culinary educator consulting on restaurant openings. Ramsey’s culinary journey took him to Kuala Lumpur where he created Babe by Jeff Ramsey with the Clearwater Xperience group, offering a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory approach to modernist cuisine. Babe took off immediately and was followed by the opening of Kintsugi by Jeff Ramsey, one of the most creative Japanese restaurants Bangkok has seen.
