Hervé is our business development guy who fell hard for the ‘Land of Smiles’.
He is a French national who has been living in Thailand for over 20 years. He’s extremely familiar with Thai cooking and Thai culture.
He was so impressed and excited by Thailand’s cuisine when he arrived that he wanted to produce Thai culinary experiences that people could recreate easily at home, which is how deSIAM came about!
