Ownselfmake Chef is a private dining experience hosted by Chef Shen Tan where you will enjoy Singapore inspired menus which mix and meld various culinary influences. Many elements of the food are hand made, hence the moniker Ownselfmake Chef. This creative streak led her to start Ownselfmake Chef with menus that explore specific themes based on a certain protein – ie aPORKalypse, What The Duck, Sinfully Seafood moving on to other themes exploring culinary ideas of umami (Sweet Surrender) or Spice (Spice Shenanigans)
Chef Shen Tan is a self-taught cook who made a giant leap from the coffee grind of the corporate world, to the pounding grind of the Maxwell Food Centre, dishing out her Twice-steamed Nasi Lemak and signature sambals. She later helmed the kitchens at Wok & Barrel and Ujong @Raffles Hotel, developing mod sin dishes like Ba Chor Mee Pasta, Pulot Hitam Cake and Shendol. This creative streak led her to start Ownselfmake Chef with menus that explore specific themes based on a certain protein. An ever-faithful gastro-partner, wok-ing with Gastrogig since 2013.
