New food show The Taste is well under way on Channel 4 and has a Malaysian contestant, named Guan Chua.
Nigella Lawson, food maverick Anthony Bourdain, and critically-acclaimed chef Ludo Lefebvre search for the first British winner of the high stakes cooking competition where flavour is the only thing that matters. The judges can only eat a spoonful of each dish so the chef’s need to ensure all of the flavour is crammed in!
Guan for several years has written his popular food blog ‘TheBoyWhoAteTheWorld’ and is also a Cordon Bleu trained chef. His culinary skill, love for innovative food and Malaysian cuisine saw Guan sail through the first round with his Sambal Prawns. His dish particularly impressed American food critic Anthony Bourdain who has fond memories of Malaysian food after a previous visit.
Guan is currently progressing through the weekly challenges and we look forward to seeing him fly the Malaysian flag! You can see Guan on the show on Tuesdays at 9pm on Channel 4.
