Chef-Owner Jeremmy Chiam has had the privilege of working alongside the most talented in the industry. His interest was kindled by Chef Hiroki Yoshitake, the acclaimed Japanese Chef-Owner of one Michelin Star restaurant Sola in Paris where Jeremmy worked.
He then spent eight years honing his skills at some of Singapore’s best restaurants: Iggy’s, which has been named amongst Top 100 in the world; Table at 7 where he worked with popular Chef Karl Dobler; Caffe B at Marina Bay Sands and The Jewel Box at Mount Faber.
All these experiences fuel Jeremmy’s passion for new techniques, where he brings his French artisanal craft and Japanese inspired flavours to Le Binchotan.
Having worked with Jeremmy for many years, Head Chef Alexander helms the kitchen at Le Binchotan to perfection. A graduate of Shatec, Alexander has continued to hone his skills in French, Italian, British and modern European cuisine.
He has worked at Guy Savoy, Au Petit Salut, Garibaldi, Caffe B, Slata Argentinean Grill House, Keystone, and The Study. During the path of his career, Alexander also had a 6-months stint with Chef-Owner Hiroki Yoshitake of one Michelin Star restaurant Sola in Paris.
