About the Chef:

Chef Jessie 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

Had a 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.

She 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.

Interestingly, she initially didn’t like being inside a kitchen, but later on, her passion changed when her expatriate partners worked with her to turn Le Souffle into a fine dining restaurant.
