Syvelle Ann Troyer
Sy’s passion for cooking started as early as 14 years old, she remembers the days when my parents would go to work, and she would volunteer to prepare dinner for them. Her first cookbook (Cookbook for Beginners) was her cooking bible, and she would refer to this when she felt like cooking or baking something.
Sy graduated her bachelor’s degree in Psychology but the love for food brought me to where I am today, a Chef. She was awarded a silver medal award for an in-house competition at the culinary school back in Philippines.
Moving to NZ and studying at Toiohomai, she won the Top student award & Emerging chef of the year in Rotorua 2021.
She still feels she has lots to learn and likes to challenge herself. “Success does not happen overnight; it is every day when you get a little better than before. It adds up.”
