About the Chef
Janice Wong's CV glistens as brightly as the gold leaf on her creations at 2am:dessertbar in her native Singapore. A last-minute career change - Wong holds a Bachelors in Economics - saw her embark on a frenetic culinary grand tour, where she learned from some of the best chefs in the world, including US luminaries Thomas Keller and Grant Archatz, as well as virtuoso Spanish chocolatier Oriol Balaguer and prodigious French pastry chef Pierre Hermé.
An undisputed favorite among sweet-toothed Singaporeans her dessert bar in Holland Village - established as one of the city's principal food and drink hubs - has redefined the genre. 2am:dessertbar is a cerebral experience that pushes the boundaries between sweet and savory with carefully researched, high-tech dishes.
Wong has received worldwide recognition for her cutting-edge creations and is a regular on the global pop-up circuit - proof that 2am:dessertbar is more than just a sugar-rush. She has recently been awarded ASIA'S BEST PASTRY CHEF at the prestigious San Pellegrino Asia Top 50 2013.
