Shooting "The Maverick Chef" with Chef Alvin Leung

Yesterday, I got invited to be a guest in the shooting of a food show called "The Maverick Chef" featuring chef Alvin Leung, known also as the Demon Chef who is one of only two self-taught chefs to have ever received Michelin Stars, as he travels, eats and cooks his way around Asia.

Beside me, there're also 3 owners of the stalls/restaurants that chef Alvin Leung had visited during the show. Our part as a guest is to taste and give feedbacks on the deconstructed food created by chef Alvin Leung for the Jakarta episode.

The shooting process.

Chef Alvin is preparing his creative deconstructed food.

Seriously, chef Alvin Leung really did a wonderful and surprise-filled job on his deconstructed and re-invented iconic Indonesian food.

With Chef Alvin Leung.

It's a very great, fun and interesting experience to try this molecular gastronomy!

I would like to say thank you to chef Alvin Leung and the Ochre Pictures for having me on the show :)

p.s: I will post the pictures of his food as soon as the show is aired on Li TV channel. So... stay tuned!

  3. That's really neat! Stupid question though--what language did you speak on the show?

  4. mica: The Maverick Chef is an English speaking food show thus chef Alvin Leung and I spoke in English but the stall/restaurant owners spoke in Indonesian language and directly translated as a summary by the co-host :)
