Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas Appoints Celia Lam as Food & Beverage Specialist Overseeing the Launch of Eat With Six Senses
Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has appointed Celia Lam as food & beverage specialist for the Eat With Six Senses initiative. Her role will be to collaborate with culinary teams to align recipes and nutritional guidelines to create, drive and implement the program being introduced throughout the group’s hotels, resorts and select spas.
Celia is no stranger to Six Senses as she was the culinary instructor setting up the first plant-based cooking course for the Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy at Evason Hua Hin in 2016 and developed some of the new curricula for the soon-to-be-launched Learning Center for Plant-based Cuisine at the Thai resort.
Previously, Celia was employed at Golder Associates Ltd. in Canada for nearly a decade where she worked in strategy supporting the launch of a global CRM initiative, developing strategies for Aboriginal partnerships and growing the company’s profile in the North. Her curiosity to discover the connection between food and healing led her back to school to study holistic nutrition in Vancouver before relocated to New York City to pursue the Chef’s Training Program of Health & Culinary Arts through the Natural Gourmet Institute.
Celia has worked and staged in both conventional and health conscious, plant-based restaurants including Plant Food & Wine in Los Angeles, Dirt Candy and Gotham in New York City, Heirloom and The Acorn in Vancouver and recently Narisawa in Tokyo.
A Canadian national, Celia holds a Bachelor of Commerce from University of Alberta and is a mentor and co-founder of the Alberta School of Business Women’s Network. She has a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition and is accredited by ACCET – Natural Gourmet Institute of Health and Culinary Arts, New York.
Celia is a member of Slow Food International and an advocate for sustainable food systems as she believes good food should never go to waste. She is excited to work with Six Senses culinary teams to offer innovative, wellness oriented cuisine to guests.
Celia will be based in the Six Senses Home Office in Bangkok.
