MORE THAN A MEAL, A JOURNEY...
Chef Marie Surakul
Chef Marie Surakul came on board at the resort/casino as a kitchen supervisor for the Temptations Food Court. Even back then, she possessed more culinary and life experience than most people ever dream.
As a young girl growing up in Thailand, she and her friends visited different restaurants all the time as teenagers. “I wanted to try everything.” “I moved to Los Angeles at 17 and I worked everywhere, whoever would hire me.”
She enrolled in Cyprus College’s culinary school and upon graduation, convinced her husband they should open a restaurant. They ran it successfully for 14 years, then sold it and moved to Temecula.
Pechanga’s culinary department quickly hired Marie. When the resort opened Bamboo in 2011, she transferred there. The executive chef later moved her to Blazing Noodles for a time, and then she moved easily into the head chef position at Bamboo in September 2019.
