The Best Chef Top 100 New Candidates: Tristin Farmer

Head chef Tristin Farmer chairs the restaurant, housed in a charming three-story shop on Bukit Pasoh Road. Originally from Scotland, Farmer has honed his culinary skills by working in the ranks of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants in the UK, such as Claridges, Petrus and Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin star restaurant in Chelsea.

In 2014 he joined Jason Atherton's The Social Company, working on Pollen Street Social and City Social in London before making his first forays abroad with the pre-opening of Aberdeen Street Social in Hong Kong and Marina Social. in Dubai. In late 2018, Farmer arrived in Singapore to head Zén, a partnership between Frantzen and the home-based hospitality group Unlisted Collection.

Zén's cuisine is decidedly Nordic and revolves around the use of Nordic products and cooking techniques such as poaching beer, fermentation and aging. And like its sister restaurant in Sweden, its unique culinary style is based on classic French cuisine and the influences of Asian and Japanese cuisine.

Zén opened in November 2018 with a lot of fanfare, and quickly gathered a long waiting list of diners eager to experience creative cuisine and inimitable hospitality for themselves. Just a year after its opening, Zén has become the selection of stars in the MICHELIN Guide Singapore not with one, but two stars. Farmer shares his joy and his immediate reactions to the recognition at the Michelin Star Singapore revelation 2019 and gala dinner.
