[ITW] Chef Smita Grosse | “I did my first tattoo when I was 9 years old”
This Summer, FB Solution HK interviews some of the best chefs in town! Bringing them out of their kitchen, we ask them to drop down cooking utensil for an hour and share with us about their own story. Roots, character, childhood, personality.. who stands behind that embroidered chef jacket? This month: Chef Smita, Executive Pastry Chef at the Grand Hyatt.
Chef Smita Grosse, first female Executive Pastry Chef at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, was born and raised in Mauritius where she also started her career in 2001 as a Pastry and Kitchen trainee at One&Only Le Saint Géran hotel. A little further down the road, she has developed a solid experience, working in many world renowned establishments, from Dubai to Jakarta. As an Executive Pastry Chef today, her role is to create, coach, develop and train her pastry team everyday, but also inspire them.
For us in this interview, the Chef kindly accepted to drop cooking ustensils for a more personal interview and share about her tattoo story. Part of our starting series of video interviews, featuring some of Hong Kong greatest Chefs, and called “Behind the Chef jacket”, we wanted to learn more about this inspiring and passionate self-driven personality, who is now part of Hong Kong F&B landscape!
