Chef Colin started his cooking journey when he joined SHATEC and was attached to Pan Pacific hotel for training. Subsequently, he left and joined a Chinese fusion private fine dining restaurant – Xi Yan. Together with his team, they set up the kitchen and prepared a total of 15 dishes from scratch, ranging from appetizers to mains and desserts for each table every night.
Chef Colin had also gained experiences in cooking nourishing confinement foods for his loved ones and family members. He has discovered his passion in imparting knowledge and skills to others and has since gone through courses to become a certified trainer.
His culinary adventures have led to extensive experiences in instructing and introducing expatriates to both local and Southeast Asian cuisines, helping others start their F&B businesses and also assisting in food preparation for private functions and events.
Chef Colin is a licensed tour guide in Singapore and is one of the finalists in the Singapore Tourism Awards 2019 for Best Customer Service that is under the Tourist Guide category. He can’t wait to bring you on a unique market tour to share with you about the different interesting spices, food knowledge, cooking methods as well as sights and sounds of our local market scene. He will be sharing tips and guidelines on finding the freshest ingredients and the things he used to look out for during his daily marketing during his culinary days. Through his useful tips, you will then be able to find fresh ingredients at the market to bring back to our culinary studio for cooking!
Chef Colin loves to impart his knowledge unto others and always says this to them: “Enjoy the process of cooking first. Tasting and adjusting the flavours come second.”
Ending off this introduction would be Chef Colin’s favourite quote: “If you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine!”
Cheers from Colin and the rest of us from Let’s Go Tour Singapore! We hope to see you soon!
