Josefina Cruz Sincioco (the full name of Chef Jessie) is a discovery of The Maya Kitchen. She was then a novice baker when she won the grand prize in the baking category of the Great Maya Cookfest way back in 1983. Her 3-month training at the Hotel Inter-Continental Manila after the competition turned into a full time job with the property. She was sent to train abroad, joined local and international competitions and in 1990, she became the first Filipina pastry chef in the history of the hotel.
The chef who, at first, did not have a liking for the smell of the kitchen found initial fame when she, along with expatriate partners, turned the restaurant Le Souffle into a fine dining mecca.
