Cebu City, Philippines From different corners of the world, great culinary masters have come to share their craft at Radisson Blu Cebu’s Feria, chefs whose stories tell secret family recipes, hallowed traditions and great culinary journeys.

From the gifted French-Canadian boy cook, Executive Chef Frederic Cyr learned to cook in his famed father, Renaud Cyr’s kitchen at the age of twelve in his home town in Quebec. He discovered the fine art of delicious cooking with the magical combination of color, spice and the love of the craft that took him across oceans and continents, making good food in every stop.

Executive Pastry Chef Allan Barrios grew up in a family of pastry chefs. His father and his four brothers spoke in the baking tongue - viscosity, dough and tossing techniques. He worked his way up from a steward to executive pastry chef.  Chef Allan now keeps the ovens at Feria warm. His deft touch and artistry, create pastries that fill the air with the spirit of homemade goodness.
