Francesco Mannino, Executive Pastry Chef
In his role, Francesco will oversee pastry across all aspects of the hotel and its six F&B outlets.
He will be responsible for the seasonally changing afternoon teas at The Orchid Lounge, the revolving menu of all things deliciously sweet at SHIOK!, the hotel’s stand-alone pâtisserie and desserts at the Southeast Asian signature restaurant Straits Kitchen, along with in-room dining and banqueting.

His style is best described as being modern, sophisticated and innovative.
