What’s your favourite food on the menu?

Favourite menu from The Summerhouse ah? I like duck leg confit. Because shiok mah – flavourful and tender, crispy skin and it’s mainly is meat. I like meat *laughs

Can you tell us more about the menu development?

I personally didn’t go to France so I depended mostly on books and research. I had a lot of help from colleagues those who personally come in touch with authentic French cuisine – been to France and have cooked the cuisine or are French-natives.

Some even shared their 100 year old recipes passed down from their grandparents! I can’t wait for everybody to try out our new dishes coming soon.

Meet Gloria, Assitant Manager at Wildseed Cafe

What did you dream of doing when you were a little girl?

When I was a little girl, my parents always told me that being a nurse was a very good profession, so I thought I wanted to be a nurse. But when I grew older, I realised that travelling the world was what I really wanted to do, to experience different cultures and see different ways of life. With that, I came to the conclusion that a flight attendant was what I truly wanted to be.

I thought the language was the most important thing to achieve what I wanted, and decided to come to Singapore through a Singapore-linked program at my university. At first, I planned to stay for a year to learn the language and new experience… but it’s been 4 years. I love my team and our regular customers!

Meet Serena, Management Trainee at Wildseed Bar

Why did you join F&B?

Initially, when I step out of school at 19, I was partying a lot and decided to join a club on a part-time basis since I was partying cause I can’t sleep, why not just work. *laughs

I eventually joined them full time for four years. After which, I thought I needed a change in environment but office 9-5 ain’t for me as I love to interact and move around so I became a door host for another F&B line before taking up an internship during COVID and joining Wildseed Bar.

I get to meet different people while working in F&B – some even became close friends! I learned a lot and every day is unpredictable so it really excites me on what the day can bring.
