Life isn`t about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself.
How would you describe your culinary philosophy?
A roller coaster ride full of Asian flavours.
Can you describe the human quality you value most highly?
I appreciate people around me that are loyal, highly motivated, smart and self-confident.
Have you ever put all your eggs in one basket?
When I play the game, it is either all or nothing. When you lose, you learn the hard way.
What was the most memorable meal you either cooked or ate?
I had a life-changing dish in a restaurant in Singapore in 2003 – fried cod with sweet and sour sauce and a mango salad. Before this dish, my cooking could be described as French-Spanish avant garde, but after this I turned to Asia for inspiration and it set me on my current path toward Asian cookery. That one dish was so full of bold flavours that I remember I reordering it three more times.
How do you like your eggs?
A power breakfast done the Chinese way; crispy fried eggs with chilli, onions and water spinach
What is your idea of pleasure?
To serve with dedication, from my heart, with everything I have.
What is the perfect accompaniment for eggs?
The egg is just about the best actor I have ever met. It can be a harmonious accompaniment to truffles, it can be rich and sweet with cream and fruit or, alternatively, it can be a spicy component in a wok stir-fried dish.
