New Exec Chef appointment for Scenic in Vietnam

Scenic today announced the appointment of Mr Oka Wibawa as Executive Chef on board Scenic Spirit, cruising the Mekong River in Vietnam.

Phil Jordan, General Manager Asia for Scenic, said Oka has been a long term member of the Scenic team in Vietnam and this new appointment is a reflection of both his skill and commitment to the delivery of excellence on board Scenic Spirit.

“Oka began his journey with Scenic in 2014 on Scenic Jasper in Europe as a Chef De Partie,” said Mr Jordan.  “There he displayed strong skills and a passion for food and cooking combined with a personality that saw him quickly become both a staff and guest favourite.

“In 2016 with the launch of Scenic Spirt on the mighty Mekong River Oka was an immediate appointment as Junior Sous Chef and over those years has consistently performed across all aspects of his work and risen to his new Executive Chef role.  He is well respected by his Cambodian team in the kitchen.

“Oka’s passion lies in creating new recipes and combining the abundance of fresh regional produce with aged old techniques and creative plating. His mantra is reflective of his youth and revolves around passion, simplicity, being proud of your work and never stopping the journey of culinary knowledge.

“We are delighted to welcome Oka as our new Executive Chef”, said Mr Jordan.
