Singapore, April 2021 – Grissini welcomes Chef Kenny Huang as the newly appointed Head Chef. At just 33 years of age, Chef Kenny is young, innovative and passionate about the culinary arts. Having honed his skills in Italy, diners can expect a menu that is expertly executed with authentic Italian cooking techniques and fresh produce with a Japanese touch. Treat yourselves to an exquisite meal at the elegant indoor dining space or choose to dine alfresco along the romantic waterfront area.
Profile of Chef Kenny Huang
Chef Kenny’s passion in the culinary arts began at a young age where he grew up helping in the kitchen of his father’s restaurant. The joy of seeing satisfied diners at the restaurant motivated him to pursue his passion. Hoping to make a name for himself, Chef Kenny moved to northern Italy, city of Turin, capital of Piedmont in 2013 and spent two years immersing in the authentic culture and cuisine of Italy. Chef Kenny honed his skills in various elite establishments including a Michelin-starred restaurant. This allowed him to learn authentic Italian cooking techniques while giving him room to explore and develop his creativity in creating extraordinary dishes with simple ingredients. Following his stint in Italy, he returned to South East Asia to work in a five-star hotel in Singapore before joining Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel.
“Chef Kenny brings a refreshing take on traditional Italian cooking and diners will be treated to a stellar array of new dishes,” says Mr Pjey Mayandi, General Manager of Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel. “Chef Kenny is the first non-Italian chef to head Grissini since the Italian restaurant opened in 2016.” Diners can look forward to Chef Kenny’s continuous culinary innovation which will include an omakase menu featuring fresh produce from Japan with sake pairing.
