By Chef Jaime F. Rojas Lopez
Originally from Mexico and currently acting as La Moda's Executive Chef, Jaime’s passion for food was inspired by preparing family meals at home from a young age. Trained in classical French techniques and having worked with 3 Michelin-star Chef Alain Ducasse in Paris, his culinary journey also took him to Spain, where he worked alongside Michelin-star Chef Oscar Calleja in Cantabria.
Jaime had always wanted to explore Asia and was very excited to make Jakarta his new home. “My vision is to create an exceptional dining experience with lasting impressions in people’s minds.”
Jaime believes in creating a well-balanced dish, which also allows a one of a kind experience for the palate. He commented, “I like to respect the product and enhance its natural flavor while playing with different textures and flavors using a variety of culinary techniques to create harmony in each dish.”
