Meet Our First Singapore Ambassador Lionel Chee

The World Food Travel Association is pleased to announce the Association’s first ambassador in Singapore, Lionel Chee. Additionally, he is the Association’s second Ambassador in Asia.

Mr. Chee was educated in Switzerland Les Roches and AHMA. He has worked in the hospitality, food, and beverage industry for the last 30 years. Mr. Chee was born into one of the earliest immigrant Peranakan families. He ran a successful heritage restaurant called Casa Bom Vento Restaurant for 20 years before embarking on a career as a tour guide. He is also a member of the Society of Tourist Guides and the director of a food consultancy firm. In addition, Mr. Chee conducts his own cooking classes and food tours around Singapore. Lionel Chee shares his philosophy: “Food brings people together like nothing else, constantly, consistently and creatively. It is something close to everyone’s heart. Money cannot buy the priceless joy that food can bring and I intend to bring that to you.”

We welcome Mr. Chee into the Association’s family of Certified Ambassadors.
