When I first met Chef Jeff Claudio, he was the Sous Chef at Burnt Ends in Singapore, which had just been recognized as the #30 restaurant in Asia's 50 Best List. He is the cousin of Chef Jessie--who trained him when he was 18--and now at 32, is one of the fast-rising Filipino Chefs based in Vancouver, Canada.
For the first time, he is doing a stopover in Manila to do a Special Menu at Chef Jessie's Rockwell Club from July 3-10, before going to Hong Kong for his next culinary journey.
It's awesome to meet chefs while they're still starting out, to get to taste their food now, and then compare it later on when they become more experienced celebrity chefs. Chef Jeff's food is a mix of Asian and Western influences from his training at Noma, Per Se, and Burnt Ends, using fresh, local ingredients and his favorite Filipino components.
