Executive Chef Sady’s Credentials

Sady professionally began his creative culinary journey in 1995 at Sodexho Marriott, New Jersey, proving his mettle at the deli, grill, pizza and oriental stations. Sady moved on as Chef Manager of a cafeteria with Restaurant Associates. Due to his natural leadership and managerial skills, Sady was later handpicked by Dartcor to be the General Manager/Executive Chef, managing multiple food branches. Sady was shining in his own right when he started working with Premiere Caterers, Inc., as Executive Chef, and pleased palettes of such stars as Nicolas Cage, Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, Catherine-Zeta Jones, Ethan Hawke, Glenn Close and Nicole Kidman (to name a few). Sady also catered to many motion pictures and TV shows such as The Sopranos, The Law of War, The Honeymooners, Two For The Money, Laws of Attraction, Hope and Faith, Rescue Me, Third Watch among others.

In 2005, Sady opened his first restaurant in Singapore at Jalan Pinang called Blue Flame pan y vino serving true authentic Latin American creole cuisine. With so many regular customers, the restaurant operated daily at full capacity on a reservation-only basis.

Being a F&B Consultant, Sady has rendered his services as an Executive Chef/Culinary Director to restaurants such as Harry’s International, Michaelangelo’s Group, Gill Capital Group and Capital Blu. Sady currently dedicates a big portion of his time teaching culinary skills and working on new menu R&D to showcase signature dishes through new F&B outlets.

Raised and educated in New York and New Jersey, Sady still hold his roots dear. He was born in Honduras in 1974 and fondly hails his Abuéla (grandma) and his Mamá as earliest inspirations. These two loving and generous women owned diners and raised Sady in a home whose heart was the kitchen and whose passion was serving others through food.

With such a nurturing background, it is no wonder that Sady thrived and went on to complete his A.A.S. Culinary Arts degree from Hudson County Community College, and at 25, was one of the youngest Executive Chefs in the United States. Sady is fluent in English, and he can croon to you in one of the most romantic languages: Spanish. He is now a Singapore Permanent Resident and is eager to share his wealth of experience and knowledge in the place he now calls home.
