Today's #CyantistWeLove: Jansen Chan, Director of Pastry At The International Culinary Center

I think creativity is not learned, but rather cultivated from within. Everybody has some creative talent. It may come in different forms – some are less visual and more conceptual. Most adults don’t develop their creative side enough because they have less opportunities to exercise that part of them. People assume creativity is one thing, when in reality, it can be anything that you produce, construct, generate, foster, or imagine, and then share.
— Jansen Chan, Director of Pastry Art at the ICC

With Cyant's CEO Barbara Hanna, an alum of The International Culinary Center and a hobbyist chef, we are glad to feature today's #cyantistwelove: Jansen Chan.

A UC Berkeley Architecture Alum, Jansen Chan draws inspiration from architecture and the arts, while bringing his design and critical thinking discipline to his work. His creations reflect this beautiful connection between food and art, as well as a desire to connect with and engage his audience.


3D printing technology has been expanding to print sugar, chocolate, pancake batter and many other food stuffs. So foodie cyantists may find new opportunities to bring food, technology, design and art together in new and exciting ways! We look forward to seeing many cyantists drawing from art artifacts and experiences around them to express their creativity, and following in Jansen Chan's "foodsteps" :) !
