May 27, 2014. His contagious energy just makes everyone laugh out loud. It’s like you sharing a cup of coffee with three shots of espresso with your friends, you get so perked up and the random chit-chats come naturally. He is Chef Frederic Cyr, Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu’s new Executive Chef.
And he is not just all talk, Chef Frederic puts all the enthusiasm on every plate he prepares. I should know because I was one of the lucky few to join him on his inaugural Chef’s table feast. (See what Chef Frederic prepared for us here and how you and your friend’s can enjoy his awesome cooking.)
