Peanut Butter Pretzel

October 9, 2012

Table 926 in North Pacific Beach has announced the newest addition to the restaurant’s lineup of impressive culinary talent: Pastry Chef Sherman Chan. In her new role at Table 926, Chan will lead the pastry department, and has already assisted with the development of the restaurant’s revamped and eclectic dessert menu.

Chan has previously held chef positions at a number of restaurants recognized by the Michelin Guide, including L’atelier de Joel Robuchon (2 stars) and Caprice (3 stars) in Hong Kong, and the Restaurant at Meadowood (3 stars) in St. Helena, Calif. Most recently, she has lent her talents to Parker Meridien Palm Springs and served as sous chef and chef consultant at JIAO in Palm Springs, Calif. Hailing from Hong Kong, Chan graduated from the University of Hong Kong with an associate’s degree in Food and Nutritional Sciences and has also attended the University of Toronto where she studied pharmaceutical chemistry.

“We’re so excited to welcome Sherman to the team. She brings a new level of innovation to our menu, and we already have people coming back asking for her desserts,” says Matt Richman, chef and owner of Table 926. “Sherman is a noticeably accomplished chef and we look forward to what she’ll do here at Table 926 with her talent and creativity.”
