Chef Rene takes the chicken challenge

First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

Thyme chef Rene Amores Maypa came here from his home in Manila, via jobs in top restaurants and private homes around the world.

His light and inventive dishes are freshly made — and taste just so — and his pizza rates among the best in Bermuda.

Here are a few things you probably did not know about the man concocting flavours in the Thyme kitchen.

Q: What do you do during your time off?

A: I spend a lot of time with my family. I also keep up with friends on Facebook and go into town to shop.

Q: What's your favourite tipple?

A: A strong cup of coffee. I love espresso, cappuccino.

Q: Who's your cooking idol?

A: Chef Bruderli. He was the executive chef at Movenpick. I loved him because he was so very particular about everything he did.

Q: What would you do if you weren't a chef?

A: My real dream was to be a doctor or an economist.

But my parents could not afford to send me to college — so I chose this profession.
