Janice Wong creations with our silicone moulds
Chef Janice Wong’s never-ending passion for culinary art has propelled her forward to test the limits of dessert making. The native Singaporean has learned from some of the world’s best chefs, including US luminaries Thomas Keller and Grant Achatz, virtuoso Spanish chocolatier Oriol Balaguer, and prodigious French pastry chef Pierre Hermé. An undisputed favourite among sweet-toothed Singaporeans, her dessert restaurant 2am:dessertbar has redefined the dessert experience, pushing the boundaries between sweet and savoury, with carefully researched progressive dishes. Recently in November 2014 she also launched her eponymous sweet concept, JANICE WONG. Chef Janice 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 named Asia’s Best Pastry Chef; for the second year running by the prestigious San Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best for 2013 & 2014.
“YOUR WORLD IS YOUR IMAGINATION”: as a visionary, artist, author, culinary stylist and photographer, Chef Janice Wong’s philosophy is a continuous inspiration for her world of edible art. In September 2011, she fashioned seven amazing edible art installations that completely transformed the studio space: with edible items as her only tools, Janice conceptualized and designed edible installations such as marshmallow ceilings and gumdropcovered walls. She has since been commissioned by galleries, restaurants and clients both locally and overseas to craft interactive art. Playing with a multitude of colors, textures, flavors and even perceptions, her strikingly unconventional artworks are constantly evolving as people interact with them. Her ideas are threaded by a commonality: a pursuit for perfection in imperfection, and an appreciation of imperfection in perfection, presenting an artistic, gastronomic world of flawless imperfection and flawed perfection. Such is the beauty of art and Janice Wong’s creations.
