'Journey Through Malaysia Pt.II' with Christine Wong

a person preparing food in a kitchen

Chef Wong's cooking style is as multiplex as her life journey; taking her from India to Malaysia, Australia, Los Angeles and England. Soon after moving to London and whilst working as Sous Chef in Verden of Clapton, Wong fell in love with British produce, in season and from the best, small-scale British producers.

Wong's journey helped to forge her iconoclastic pan-Malaysian/Asian concept she's dubbed 'Rojak', which relives Malaysia's culinary melting point of Malay, Chinese & Indian food, but also borrows techniques and dishes from cooking along her route, with a grounding in seasonal, quality British produce.
