Chef wan

Tak boleh tidoq lagi.. i baru watched chef wan on tv2 .. program seafood odyssey. Alamak sekarang ni Serina pulak dlm "periuk Malaysia-belanga brunei". Anak dara dgn bapak sama naik. Anak bujangpun sama. Semua pukul habis cooking program. Elok le tu!

Back to Chef Wan. Aku mula kenal chef wan rasanya dlm 1988. Aku baca dia punya food travel journal + cooking recipe. Mmg best. Aku belajar buat pizza + roti dari Jelita. Bagus sbb kat situ aku tahu bila yeast tidor, yeast bangun n yeast mati.. tepung ada pelbagai jenis n kualiti. Aku still keep his recipe tu.

Pada aku chef wan guru yg bagus. Bukan setakat mengajar sekali tips & teknik, tp jugak share about food history.. food origin and variety of species sesuatu ingredient tu. Pada aku dia mmg teramat bagus n bertaraf dunia n layak deserve for international recognition. Walaupun org kata dia tu very the-very laser, celupar giler org kata.. and extremely fussy!

For me, nak jadi celebrity chef ni bukan setakat kena pandai masak n cakap je. He or she must be very good entertainer, know everything about food.. histrory, character etc.
For those who wanna know more about him.. just google chef wan. I found 198,000 links when I search him on google just now.
His programes currently shown on RTM2, TV3 (Rasa Ayamas), Channel 9 (repeated programme kut), AFC (from the garden to the kithen show on channel 703 astro). Itu yg aku jumpa le..

nak masuk gambar chef wan.. 3g connection aku slow giler!
