Kelly Tay, Chef de Cuisine

Kelly has over 17 years of hospitality experience under his repertoire and leads the Colony culinary team. He realised his passion for the culinary arts at the age of 16 after observing chefs while he was working at a hotel. Impressed by their skills, creativity and meticulous plating, Kelly decided to carve out his career as a chef and quickly enrolled into The Singapore Hotel and Tourism Education Centre (SHATEC) upon graduating secondary school.

Over the years, Kelly has worked for various specialty restaurants and hotels where he continuously hones his culinary skills and has become exceptionally well-versed in Modern European cuisine.

When he is not in the kitchen, Kelly enjoys jogging, swimming, fishing and the occasional Muay Thai session.
