Sous Chef of STELLAR@1-Altitude, Singapore
A graduate of Temasek Polytechnic’s Diploma in Baking and Culinary Science in 2011, Wendy Kuek was Chef de Partie of Stellar at 1-Altitude from April 2011 to October 2014, and after spreading her wings in other restaurants, she returned as Senior Chef de Partie in February 2015. Now a Sous Chef, she has been dedicated to picking up the different culinary preparation skills from Executive Chef Christopher Millar and his team.
In particular, Wendy’s interest has been on applying the different techniques and ingredients that she can incorporate into her dishes, like the use of brining, mastering the sous vide, duck leg confit oil to retain moisture and create flavour in meats, and the benefit of different spices in enhancing flavours. Petite in stature, she holds her own in the kitchen, and will stand up to the challenge of taking part in competitions like the San Pellegrino Young Chefs competition 2016.
