A Wealth Of Culinary Knowledge

Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok has announced the appointment of Luca Lodoli as restaurant manager and sommelier for Ms.Jigger – the contemporary Italian restaurant, bringing with him a wealth of culinary knowledge and wine know-how from his home country of Italy to elevate every diner’s experience.


Luca’s culinary adventure started in a busy household where his parents’ cooking philosophy was to “let Luca handle it!” while he was growing up in the centre of Rome. He began learning how to prepare simple Roman dishes at the tender age of 11, and eventually the dinner table turned into a rotating feast of mouthwatering treats. The ultimate foodie, who was mostly inspired by his amazing food-loving aunts, occasionally attended not one, but two dinners at their homes.

Luca Lodoli is the new restaurant manager and sommelier for Ms.Jigger.


When he turned 20, and was pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Italy, Luca fell head over heels for the captivating world of wine. He enrolled in a two-year sommelier course with the Associazione Italiana Sommelier, where he delved into wine theory, grape identification, wine-tasting mastery, wine-food pairings and service techniques.


When Luca set his sights on the University of Brighton, he wasn’t just there to study English. As an adventurous foodie and wine connoisseur, it was all about savouring new flavours and experiences too. During his time in England, he also embarked on his first part-time gig in the food and beverage industry, setting the stage for his culinary career.
