Meet the Team

Yoshihide Hamamoto

Executive Pastry Chef

Influenced by his Japanese homeland and its intricate, delicate pastry traditions, Chef Hamamoto brings a meticulous approach to his craft. Despite the artistry of his creations, he is a firm believer in letting natural Japanese flavours define the overall taste of his desserts – especially the fruit. His signature strawberry shortcake, a fragrant vanilla sponge layered with Chantilly cream and topped with fresh Japanese strawberries, is a delicate balance of flavours that he has spent his career perfecting.

“I am happiest when eating cake, so I simply wish to bring a smile to others with my creations too.”
