Joanne describes working at the FCC as “never a dull day,” and has been at the club since 2007. Joanne likes to chat and always remembers an old face, and she sees it as her job to develop a close relationship with the members. If the front office can’t handle your question, Joanne will take over. Joanne also helps run the website and sits on the communications committee.
When she’s not at the FCC, Joanne likes to watch movies and go hiking. Wine and cheese are Joanne’s favourite things, and if eating from the FCC menu, she’ll normally go for a burger or curry.
Carman takes care of all aspects of membership at the FCC. Applications for new membership will pass through her hands, as will any questions about membership or membership suspension.
Carman enjoys baking cakes and will often bring cheese cake and macarons in for her colleagues. Spaghetti is Carman’s favourite item on the FCC menu.
George is the boss of all food operations at the FCC. He’s been feeding members since 2007 and, as the menu suggests, likes to cook a whole range of cuisines, from Cantonese to Continental. George is often satisfied with a coffee and a croissant.
George will deal with any questions that members have about the food, and behind the scenes he picks the best ingredients and bargains with suppliers.
George is a keen badminton player and likes to watch football on TV.
Mike has been at the FCC for 16 years, and enjoys cooking (and eating ) Japanese, western, Chinese and fast food. His favourite item on the FCC menu is Singapore Noodles. He’s a relaxed man despite the hectic job, and puts this down to living on Lamma Island.
Anson works in the main dining room and his job is to make the service run smoothly. He worked at the Intercontinental hotel before joining the FCC.
When he’s not dashing about the restaurant he’s either playing computer games or shopping with his wife. Anson’s favourite food in the world is Wagyu beef from Japan, and he will often choose the rack of lamb with mint sauce from the FCC menu.
