“ Fine-dining quality desserts brought to your home ”
Otera, in the Japanese language, means “ A temple”. In the wellness sense, is how we treat our mind, as a temple where we find harmony.
Led by two-time award-winning pastry chef Joanna Yuen, whose prolific career in Japanese pastry and desserts span across countries and cultures, chef Yuen creates umami desserts where sweet meets savoury and brings a sense of harmony in flavour and in texture to her guests.
Joanna Yuen is a Hong Kong-based pastry chef with an unusual career path. After designing wedding cakes at home while she works at Ogilvy and Mather, an advertising agency, Joanna decided to answer her calling and pursued the path of a professional pastry chef. She joined the pasty team at Landmark Mandarin Oriental in 2016. She subsequently became the Commis Chef at The Ocean by Olivier Bellin before becoming the Head Pastry Chef of Nobu InterContinental Hong Kong in 2017 which she won her first Best Pastry Chef of Hong Kong award by T-Dining. Joanna was then recruited as Head Pastry Chef of Andō from 2020 to 2022, during which her signature desserts Wagashi and Hibiki—the most delicate flan that balances the maltiness of whisky with a savoury kick of sea salt ice-cream earned her second Best Pastry Chef of the Year by Tatler Dining in 2022 and 2020. Her work has been featured in leading publications including Vogue Hong Kong, Tatler, South China Morning Post, Echelon and Asian Entrepreneur Magazine.
