Culinary Competition

Apart of cooking and eating, chefs are subject to various competition which aims to improved their culinary skills. 'Learning' the arts' through culinary exposure and sharing thoughts are common during any intellectual discourse among the chef.

In many competitions, young chefs will be assigned to a mentoring chef, where, the young chefs will go through an experience which worth a lifetime.

Winning a contest is always on the upper minds, but the experience and exposure are more valuable while building a career as a chef.

TV Shooting

preparing the props

I had a rare 'live' TV appearance and two magazine write ups in 2004, objectively to promote culinary program.

the university's cafe as the studio
Yesterday it was a full shooting and will be considered as my first full TV appearance. The program which will be aired for TV2 morning segment, somewhere in August 2009 under Healthy Diet Food

I will be cooking a family recipe; the homemade mackerel fish ball and sugar-less fruit bread. Both are suitable for diabetic, hyper-tension patients as well as those who have fever ( as fever are quite popular nowadays :)
Being my first TV shooting, I must say I am not satisfied as I am not familiar to the process which my cooking may a bit boring and stagnant; as compared to normal class session which is always cheerful and full of laugh... perasan haha

the sugar-less fruit bread

I hope to improved my 'acting' skills' as I can expect more TV appearance after this, so please watch my program. By the way, a new magazine write-up will be published soon on being a cafe owner as well an article will be presented in United States end of this month...hmm what a life
