Chef Jimmy Cheang


With humility and genuine curiosity, Chef Jimmy Cheang embarked on a journey in 2009 to explore a renowned aspect of American cuisine – American Barbeque. Amazed by how different it was from the Singaporean direct heat grilling method, Jimmy traveled to the United States and trained under two multi-award winning and renowned pitmasters. He especially enjoys the process of preparing the meat for barbeque – he uses a technique that injects the marinade into the meat and applies a special dry rub before placing them into a smoker with fruitwood set on a low temperature for a long duration. As he dived further into the art form, it led him to explore various cuisines and their different aspects such as Charcuterie, French, Japanese, Chinese, and many others. Chef Jimmy is a qualified Kansas City Barbeque judge and he hopes that with Esseplore he will be able to share his food with fellow Singaporeans and show them the delicious world of American Barbeque.
