The World Food Travel Association is pleased to announce the Association’s first ambassador in Singapore, Mr. Lionel Chee. He is also 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. Born into one of the earliest immigrant Peranakan family, he ran a successful heritage restaurant 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 director of a food consultancy firm. He also conducts his own cooking classes and food tours around Singapore. Mr. 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 what food can bring and I intend to bring that to you.”

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