Helmed by Japanese Chef Chiaki Watanabe

You don’t see many females in the F&B industry, especially in the kitchen and I am not talking about pastry kitchen in context. I only got a chance to exchange a few words with Chef Chiaki, as she is always busy at the kitchen and making sure everyone in her team run the operations smoothly and efficiently.
