As a Malaysian chef residing in Singapore, James Satya has the privilege of enjoying the vibrant culinary cultures of both countries. A strong advocate of time-honoured methods and recipes, James prides himself in serving wholesome, authentic food premised upon great local produce. He is trained in classic French techniques but believes in taking his culinary creations a step further by devoting strong attention to detail in his dishes. Growing up with his grandmother and watching her mill her own spices has instilled an understanding of the importance of authenticity and traditional methods in him.
