Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta Introduces Frederic Scailteur as Executive Pastry Chef

Frederic Scailteur

Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta welcomes Frederic Scailteur as its new Executive Pastry Chef. The award-winning chef will be in charge of creating innovative and creative pastries that entice both guests’ eyes and palates for the hotel.

Inspired by his father’s profession in the culinary world, Chef Frederic first tried to pursue a career in the field as a chef de cuisine. Soon realising his passion for dessert, the Belgian chef concentrated and perfected his skills to become a pastry chef at the age of 15.

After a four-year service in the army, Chef Frederic opened his first shop in Brussels. He continued to refine his talents and enrich his experience by travelling and working across the globe as executive pastry chef and executive pastry director at prestigious establishments, including five-star hotels and culinary schools in the Philippines, Japan, Korea and now Indonesia.

The secret to Chef Frederic’s success in the kitchen comprises four key ingredients: respect, discipline, focus and passion. For him, if one does not have these traits, one’s place is not in the kitchen. With these principles, he successfully garnered distinguished achievements in the culinary world, including a gold medal in Premier Patissier de Belgique (Best Pastry Chef of Belgium) competition, a gold medal for his Artistic Showpiece during Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie (The Pastry World Cup) in Lyon and a gold medal in Coupe d’Europe de la Pattiserie (European Pastry Cup) in Rome.

Chef Frederic will bring a range of new pastries, cakes and desserts to Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta. He took his inspiration for his creations mostly from women, flowers and everything that is elegant.

“Pastry has to be elegant and sexy,” said the friendly chef.

Guests can enjoy Chef Frederic’s creation at SATOO Deli Shop, the Lobby Lounge as well as at SATOO. Open 24 hours a day, the Deli shop is the perfect place for those who want to spend time with friends and enjoy good coffee, tea or fresh juice with a delicate pastry or cake made by Chef Frederic. It offers free wireless Internet access for those who want to socialise and do business through online.
