About the Guest Speaker
Pâtisserie Glacé was started in 2008 with the aim of bringing the best of Japan's cakes, pies and cookies and tarts to Singapore. It is helmed by Chef Higashiguchi Tomoko.
Tomoko’s passion for baking was ignited when she attended private lessons at home on baking and cooking for a year, at the age of 16. When she started her busy career as a teacher, she attended Sawada Culinary School in Nara after work where she learnt both hot and cold cooking for 3 years, including cakes, desserts and breads to further her pursuit.
As a mother of 3 children the quality, safety and taste of the ingredients are topmost on her mind. These are expressed in each and every one of Glacé’s pastries.
Tomoko and her partner opened Pâtisserie Glacé with the objective of making healthy, tasty and moderately-priced Japanese pastries accessible to the majority of Singaporeans. To this end Glacé has started conducting baking classes since 2010 so professionals and amateurs alike can also "Bake Like Glacé".
