Get to know me better
A cook who takes the ordinary and elevate it to the next level. I cook to please my diners and express my love in aromas, taste and texture.
I am a full time Corporate Chef by day and have worked as a Personal Chef for over 15 years. My repertoire was Mediterranean (Italian, Southern France and Spanish) before focusing on Far Eastern cuisine e.g. Japanese, Regional Chinese (South China and Sichuan), South-east Asian (Singapore, Malaysia, Thai), traditional home cuisine and street food. I enjoy cooking because over the years of living and working in Asia, I have picked up skills and better understanding of diverse culture and cuisines. I have also picked up cooking Mexican cuisine after working with a few Mexican colleagues. Another interesting ancient culture which has changed the world in terms of ingredients and taste. It's principal is very similar to old Chinese cooking focusing on local seasonal ingredients.
For me, cooking is...
Love, a convivial experience and appreciation of the abundance around us.
I learned to cook at...
From my grandmother, mother, colleagues, and finally Uni of West London.
A role model in the kitchen is...
The humble chef who runs his noodle store in Sham Sui Po in for the last 30 year and the same menu for 60 years is a testament dedication to his art.
A cooking secret...
Using good ingredients, preparing them in the best way so not to eclipse their natural flavours and ensuring my diners enjoying them.
