Tim Dela Cruz joins Skewd as head chef

Tim Dela Cruz has joined Skewd Kitchen as head chef and will work alongside executive chef and owner Maz Demir.

Dela Cruz, from the Philippines, was formerly head chef at Jason Atherton’s Pig & Palm in Cebu in the Philippines, which opened last year, and worked at Bonnie Gull in London as sous chef for a year. He also competed in the BBC’s MasterChef: The Professionals in 2015.

The Manila-born chef aims to combine Skewd’s Mediterranean/Turkish cuisine with Southeast Asian flavours.

He said: “I am very pleased to join Skewd Kitchen. They have achieved great things with Maz. I look forward in working with him and the team to create amazing dishes.”
