The Maya Kitchen Presents Chef Jessie Sincioco
On January 26, Saturday, 9am-1pm, The Maya Kitchen presents well known chef and restaurateur Chef Jessie Sincioco, as she shares her recipes for light, healthy yet delicious dishes to usher in the New Year.
She is an honest to goodness ‘discovery’ of The Maya Kitchen. Josefina Cruz Sincioco, then a novice baker, won the grand prize in the baking category of the Great Maya Cookfest way back in 1983. She credits this as the start of her career in the kitchen.
Her 3-month training at the Hotel Inter-Continental Manila after the competition turned into a full time job with the property. She was sent to train abroad, joined local and international competitions and in 1990, she became the first Filipina Pastry Chef in the history of the hotel.
The chef who, at first, did not have a liking for the smell of the kitchen found initial fame when she, along with expatriate partners, turned the restaurant Le Souffle into a fine dining mecca.
Chef Jessie is now President and CEO of JCS Gastronomie Inc. that operates fine dining restaurants Chef Jessie Rockwell Club and Top of the Citi by Chef Jessie. She is also a co-author of KULINARYA, a Guidebook to Philippine Cuisine.
Dedicated, hard working, feisty and in the end all talent, this is what Chef Jessie Sincioco is all about.
