[Podcast] How to Turn Your Hobby Into a Career? PS Cafe’s Head Chef Shares

In this next instalment of the five-part podcast series by Workforce Singapore and MoneySmart, the head chef at PS Cafe talks about his career journey to now head up the kitchen at one of Singapore’s trendiest F&B chains.

PS Cafe is no stranger to many of us, especially if we’re into Sunday brunches. The eatery first started in 1999 as a cosy cafe within Projectshop, a now-closed clothing store that used to have 15 outlets islandwide. Due to the Asian financial crisis in 1997, the company decided to shutter its fashion arm and focus only on food.

And since then, PS Cafe now boasts 10 restaurants islandwide and two overseas outlets in Shanghai and Seoul.

In this episode of the podcast series by Workforce Singapore and MoneySmart, Matthew Wan, head chef at PS Cafe, shares about his career journey to now head up the kitchen at one of Singapore’s trendiest F&B chains.

Cooking wasn’t his first choice in the beginning — Wan had initially spent two years in advertising. “I did [advertising] for 2 years and realised it wasn’t for me,” he says. “But when I was [in Singapore] and while I was studying in Australia, I realised I like to cook.”

He decided to follow his passion. “[It was] probably a very naive way of thinking of what I wanted to do next in my career, but I decided I would go back to Australia, to culinary school.”
