Get to know me better
Crafty cook. Classic with a bit of modern twist.
My name is Ben, I'm currently working in Victoria as a chef. I have around 13 years of cooking experience. I'm Taiwanese Japanese, I was a trainee in a 1 Michelin star Japanese kitchen during my high school years, my second job was at Restaurant Andre, a French restaurant in Singapore, where I learned classical French cooking for the first time. Having trained Asian cuisine then being influenced by western food, I came up with my own unique style of cooking.
About five years ago I came to Austalia and worked at Syracuse wine bar for Chef Philippa Sibley ( Australia's queen of dessert) for two years before I went to Debrotoli winery to improve my Italian cooking. Now I have finally settled down at Yering station Yarra Valley where I continue to explore myself. Seeking to broaden knowledge of food, and overall event presentation.
I believe that the best type of cooking is to let ingredients speak for themselves, buy the freshest, nicest products and combine with proper technique will always give amazing results.
My availability will vary sometimes as I also work as a full-time chef. I will keep updating them in my profile. Now I can only do dinner service with the exception of Monday and Tuesday which I can do Lunch and dinner.
For me, cooking is...
Lifestyle, and an art which I can express myself.
I learned to cook at...
Restaurant Andrew Singapore.
A role model in the kitchen is...
I think It would be Bruno Albouze. So creative, and full of passion.
