MASTER CHEFS OF THE OPEN SEA
3 of our Naval Chefs were crowned winners of the Star Chef competition, in the Western Cuisine (Aspiring Chef Teams) category, at the Epicurean Star Award 2013.
Bravo Zulu, ME2 Wisley Tay, ME1 Jonathan Neo and ME1 Eugene Yeo!
For ME2 Wisley Tay, the Chief Chef on board RSS Swordsman, an Archer Class submarine, the motivation to join was spurred by the passion to improve in his job. “It’s a never-ending challenge, and taking part in competitions like the Star Chef competition really helps me and my team mates to refine our skills.” Beaming with pride, he sees this as an opportunity to promote the Naval Chef vocation to the public and within the SAF.
Organised by the Restaurant Association of Singapore, the Epicurean Star Award celebrates the milestone achievements in Singapore’s F&B industry, recognising visionaries, talented chefs and restaurateurs who have inspired others towards achieving excellence.
