She studied culinary arts in Switzerland, where she also gained experience at Michelin-star restaurant Seerestaurant Belvédère. She furthered her career at Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach, and Honu Seafood and Pizza on Maui before joining the team at Taverna, where she is currently sous chef. “I am still as eager and curious as when I first embarked on this culinary journey,” says Chef Jocson. “Every new dish is as exciting as the last. It is this excitement for food that I want to share with each and every guest that walks into our restaurant.”
